Dream

Victoria Falls & Livingstone

Every aspect of the waterfall is very special. When you plan your trip with Tripety, each visit to Victoria Falls and Livingstone will be unique. You may rent a boat and have a lovely walk through the Zambezi river. You will be very impressed with sunset when you have a walk-in canoe or a little boat.  While the boat walks, you will be able to come to the nearest island which is very close to the waterfall. 

Tripety planner will help you to rent a house on the riverside for safari. Downstream, closer to the waterfall, you will be able to see amazing towering cliffs. High above, the historic railway bridge linking Zambia and Zimbabwe regularly hosts a magnificently restored steam train. 

On the main point of attention, there is an old historic town Livingstone. It is located some minutes walk from the waterfall. Also, you may see the local market, some luxury hotels, and a small museum. All these places are very popular and historic. 

With the Tripety planner, you will be able to build the best ways and places to visit in Livingstone.

All the main sights of Livingstone are concentrated beyond its borders. As already mentioned, the majestic Victoria Falls is considered the main symbol of the city. The best place to observe the fall of a huge mass of water is “The Blade of a Knife“. It is a small island in the middle of the river with a stunning view of the waterfall. Also, many Tripety travelers prefer to look at Victoria from the Livingstone Bridge that stretches across the Zambezi or from the top of a giant baobab that grows nearby.

Below the Victoria there is one of the most picturesque waterfalls in Central Africa – Ngonye. Many tourists have a short trip to enjoy this view.

Archaeological excavations take place near Victoria. There is a small museum here, where you can see the remains of humanoid individuals, which are more than 2.5 million years old.

A complete picture of the traditions of the local population can be obtained in the village of the chief Mukuni. There is a museum of everyday life. Local people are always glad to see guests, they will be happy to show their homes and household items.

There are several large state museums and galleries. The most popular among foreign guests are the Railway Museum, the D. Livingston Museum, and the National Museum. The latter contains a unique collection of exhibits of archaeological finds in Zambia. The most valuable exhibit is the skull of a Neanderthal man, which is approximately 100,000 years old. In addition to anthropological exhibits, the museum presents an exhibition of magic items for witchcraft, which will certainly appeal to true lovers of mysticism.
