Staying in Livingstone, Zambia to Visit the Falls
Where to Stay in Livingstone
The small colonial town of Livingstone is situated about 10 km from the Falls themselves. The majority of accommodation here is not in the town itself, rather it is spread along the Zambezi River, offering visitors not only a close base from which to visit the Falls from, but also the opportunity to enjoy magnificent sunsets over the river while relaxing with a sundowner after their day out.
Livingstone is named, unsurprisingly, after the great explorer David Livingstone, and an interesting way to spend a few hours if you have the time is to visit the Livingstone Museum, which is the oldest museum in Zambia, and has interesting displays of David Livingstone memorabilia.
Livingstone also acts as a gateway to the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park.
