There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Victoria Falls, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, and explore and take pictures at Mukuni Village.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Livingstone fast, fun, and easy.
