The Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls are situated on the southernmost periphery of Zambia, where it meets Zimbabwe. These falls are one of the world's greatest sights, with water from the wide Zambezi River dropping 100 m/330 ft into a narrow gorge. These falls have one the world's mightiest torrents, measuring 2.5 km/1.5 mile. The spray from the waterfall is visible from 30 km/20 miles away. The Knife Edge Bridge gives an excellent view of the main falls, the eastern cataract, and the boiling pot. The place where the river drops down the Batoka Gorge is known as the boiling pot.

The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is located here and is a small park. Several common wild animals are found in this park. Livingstone,
Named after the famous Victorian missionary explorer, Dr. David Livingstone, the Town was established in 1905. As a major European settlement, the town was made the capital of Northern Rhodesia in 1911. As the capital, it enjoyed excellent facilities far superior to anything in the country, as can be seen from the surviving Edwardian colonial buildings that line the city's main road. The ‘Tourist Capital of Zambia', is also close by and there is a casino and also many luxury hotels for tourists to relax and rewind at. The Livingstone Museum, where anthropological exhibits and Livingstone memorabilia are housed, is also worth visiting. Another place of interest is the Railway in Livingstone.
