Livingstone — 9 nights

Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.
Take a break from the city and head to Victoria Falls and Walking tours. Take a break from Livingstone with a short trip to Batoka Gorge in Kazungula, about 1h 55 min away. And it doesn't end there: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, examine the collection at Railway & Gateway Jewish Museum, shop like a local with Wayiwayi Art Studio and Gallery, and explore and take pictures at Mukuni Village.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Livingstone day trip app.

Air Conditioned State
Landlocked Zambia remains best known, a little counter intuitively perhaps, for its bodies of water. Three large rivers run through the country, with most of the big urban areas and smaller settlements sticking close to waterways and the valleys they've cut over millennia. Holidays in Zambia are adventurous affairs, with real planning required to get the most out of the country--foreign visitors find the infrastructure lacking and familiar comforts practically nonexistent. Traditional villages remain the most culturally rewarding places to visit in Zambia, while superlative natural features include animal-rich national parks and picturesque waterfalls.
