If you dream of visiting the island of David Livingstone himself, Livingstone Island, from which he “discovered” the Victoria Falls, then you must visit the Victoria Falls from the Zambian side.
The island was named by David Livingstone on 17 November 1855, when he came paddling here in canoes and landed on it. He laid down on his stomach at the edge of the island and stared straight into the immense bodies of water.
On this tour, you are picked up at your hotel and cross the border to Zambia. First you must leave Botswana, after which a small boat ride over the Zambezi river awaits before you can enter Zambia. It’s easy – and it’s an exciting and very African experience.
A guided tour awaits you at the waterfalls – as does the visit to Livingstone Island, where you will also be having lunch.
You can visit Livingstone Island from around the middle of July to the end of January – depending on water levels. Note that a visa is required to enter Zambia. This can be purchased at the border for $50.
