Livingstone throbs with the heartbeat of a thriving holiday town. Bustling with activity and filled with wonderful hotels, lodges and even a backpackers, Livingstone welcomes tourists and every local seems to think your enjoyment is their personal responsibility. People flock to Livingston to view the wonder of the Victoria Falls, to play on the raging Zambezi River, to visit the Mosi-oa-Tunya National park, or en route between central and southern Africa. Here you can ride on anything – river boards, rafts, canoes, horses, elephants, quad bikes, kayaks, steam trains and boats. You can walk with the lions, abseil, visit the croc farm and snake park; pay Chief Mukuni a visit in his rural village to get a taste of traditional Zambian culture, or shop up a storm at the bustling Maramba Market. However, one of the best activities available in Livingston has got to be watching the glowing sunset from the top of the Batoka Gorge, ice-cold Mosi beer in hand.
