It’s also a tourism centre for the popular Victoria Falls which is 10 kilometres north of the Zambezi River and a border town with a much needed road and rail connections toZimbabwe which is on the other side of the Falls.
Victoria Falls is one of most popular destinations on the African continent and this makes the area of Livingstone an excellent place to visit. The area is named after the British explorer, David Livingstone, who was the first white man to explore the area.

This amazing natural wonder is served and protected by the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park which is situated in the city’s south-western edge. Another beautiful sight to admire is that of the Batoka Gorges which can be found below the Falls.
