Region: Livingstone, Zambia
Physical Address: Stand 142A, Nakatinda Road, Livingstone, Zambia
Livingstone is named for missionary and explorer David Livingstone. The main street of this quaint colonial town is the important Mosi-oa-Tunya Road, sections of which are lined with classic colonial buildings.
These Victorian tin roofed houses with wooden verandas, many of which are decaying, are a typical example of the English settler architecture. The spectacular Victoria Falls Bridge, which is only about 10km away from Livingstone, was completed in 1905 and settlers moved in to the higher ground at Livingstone to try and escape Malaria.
