Visiting Livingstone

Because of the proximity to Botswana, you may choose to start or finish your safari at Livingstone, Zambia – this is the town on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls. There is an array of excellent accommodation options, from big, conveniently placed hotels, to affordable guest houses and bush lodges on the outskirts of Livingstone.


What you should know about visiting the Falls:

  • Livingstone International airport has daily connections to Johannesburg and Windhoek
  • We can easily arrange a road transfer from your Livingstone accommodation to your accommodation in Botswana
  • It usually takes about 2 hours to drive from livingstone to Kasane (in the Chobe area of Botswana). From Kasane, we can also arrange a charter flight to any camp in Botswana.
  • This transfer also requires that you cross the Zambezi by boat (all taken care of by us)
  • Most visitors require a visa to enter Zambia – this would be your responsibility
  • You can buy your visa in cash as you enter the country

  • Walk over the railway bridge between Zimbabwe and Zambia – see the bungee jumpers
