Day 1: Arrival and Introduction

Livingstone, Zambia, is a gem of a destination offering a diverse array of experiences that cater to all types of travelers. From natural wonders to adrenaline-pumping adventures, this guide will help you make the most of your three-day trip to Livingstone.

Morning: Arrival and Check-in

Arrive at Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (Livingstone Airport) and head to your accommodation. There are plenty of options in Livingstone, ranging from luxurious resorts to budget-friendly lodges, so you can easily find one that suits your preferences.

Afternoon: Victoria Falls

After settling in, begin your adventure by visiting one of the most iconic natural wonders on Earth – Victoria Falls. You can book a guided tour with us here or explore it on your own. The falls are a UNESCO World Heritage site and a breathtaking sight to behold. Feel the mist on your face as you walk along the various viewpoints, such as the Knife Edge Bridge or the Devil’s Pool (if open for visitors during your visit).

Evening: Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River

End your first day with a relaxing Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River . This leisurely boat trip will treat you to stunning views of the African sunset, and you might even spot some wildlife along the riverbanks. Many cruises include drinks and snacks, making it a perfect way to unwind after a day of exploration.

Day 2: Wildlife and Adventure

Morning: Safari at Chobe National Park

Start your day early with a visit to Chobe National Park in neighboring Botswana. A short transfer will take you to this wildlife-rich paradise, famous for its large elephant herds, buffalo, lions, and a variety of other animals. Take a guided game drive or a boat safari along the Chobe River, offering unique perspectives and great opportunities for wildlife photography.

Afternoon: Explore Livingstone Island and Swim in Devil’s Pool (seasonal)

Back in Livingstone, visit Livingstone Island for a thrilling experience at Devil’s Pool (if available during your visit). This natural rock pool sits right at the edge of Victoria Falls, allowing you to swim at the precipice with the waterfall cascading right next to you—an unforgettable and adrenaline-filled experience. For those visiting outside the appropriate season, the island still offers incredible views of the falls.

For the adventure seekers, consider an adrenaline-pumping activity like white water rafting on the Zambezi River. The river’s rapids offer thrilling challenges that are sure to get your heart racing.
