Livingstone — 5 nights

Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.
Livingstone Museum and Railway Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at The Explorer Club, take in the exciting artwork at Wayiwayi Art Studio and Gallery, indulge in some personalized pampering at Namakau's Health Spa, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

Plan trip to Livingstone with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Livingstone is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Livingstone due to the time zone difference. July in Livingstone sees daily highs of 25°C and lows of 15°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to catch the flight to Lusaka.

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.
