The Only 7 Things to Do in Livingstone, Zambia, Livingstone, Zambia (B)

Looking for things to do in Livingstone? Here’s a list of the top 7 DO NOT MISS things to do! They will keep you occupied for your entire stay in Livingstone; Zambia’s beating heart of tourism town.

Getting to Livingstone is made easy with its well-connected airport to other parts of nearby Africa. The airport in Livingstone is called Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International airport, named after the Zambia leader responsible for the country’s independence. You can find flights from nearby larger international airports such as O.R Tambo international airport in Johannesburg, South Africa and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya.

Zambia’s capital is well connected to Livingstone by a 7-hour direct bus. Buses cost between $15 – $20 and run regularly each day. Stay Connect bus service offers the bus for 200 Kwacha ($16). Lusaka airport is also well-connected to airports outside of Africa. We managed to find flights from Thailand to Lusaka for under $400.

Crossing from Zimbabwe into Zambia is made easy with a Kaza visa (only for citizens of certain countries). A Kaza visa allows you to enter both Zimbabwe and Zambia on one visa. The current cost for a Kaza visa for U.K citizens is $50, and this can be obtained at land borders as well as airports. To cross into Livingstone, Zambia from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, you simply need to take a taxi, or walk to the Victoria Falls bridge. A taxi from Shoestrings Backpackers cost us just $5. After a quick stamp on your visa to show you have left Zimbabwe, you will need to walk about 1km in no-man’s land across the bridge where you can catch a glimpse of Victoria Falls or watch the dare-devils bungee jump off the bridge. ......
