Victoria Falls Activities - Zambia

Livingstone in Zambia, like Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is a destination jam packed full with activity options to cater for everyone’s needs. The conundrum for people generally is not “what to do” but” how do we fit this all in”.

Choosing which side to stay on is often the initial challenge for visitors - read our Zimbabwe vs Zambia page for help on that decision but despite the wonderful array of things to do either side of the Zambezi river, the overriding activity is to view the Falls and in my opinion if you have come all the way around the world and you don’t see them from the Zimbabwean side you have missed out.

please read our Activities in Zimbabwe page for an idea of what’s available there, much of the information is applicable to both countries. Many activities are common to both sides and although there are slight differences in the operations of these activities they are essentially the same. However, I would like to highlight two of the activities that are unique to Zambia; the Livingstone island tour/devils swim and micro-light flights both of which are spectacular activities and should be placed on the “Must Do” list.

Staying in one country and doing activities in another is not a major problem, getting across the border is an easy enough process, it obviously can be a bit time consuming at times especially in the high season but taxis and transfers can easily be arranged - you can contact us for assistance. The biggest factor is visa costs because as soon as you exit one country you will be required to purchase a re-entry visa on your return, hence it is wise to plan ahead and if you are thinking of crossing the border then buy a double entry on your first arrival.

Any Safari type activity I would recommend doing in Zimbabwe as the wildlife opportunities on that side are superior. The rafting in Zambia has an advantage over Zimbabwe in that there is a cable car that takes you out at the end rather than facing the rather gruelling walk out the gorge. Steam train trips are now available on both sides but the one in Zambia includes a first class dinner and is therefore more of a dining experience. Helicopter flights are much the same as are the river cruises although choosing the correct boat on either side is important. Cultural experiences, like the African village tours again are available on both sides and are much of a muchness but Livingstone has a few more attractions in the town with many more colonial buildings, the Livingstone museum and the railways museum which for some people are worth visiting.

On the whole activities in Zambia cost a little more than they do for the same activity in Zimbabwe and if you are staying at one of the lodges or hotels in Livingstone then getting to your activity takes a bit longer as Livingstone is located 10kms from the Falls. Most activity operators will collect you from any town lodge.

Best idea is to send us a Enquiry Form detailing what you are interested in doing and we can then advise you what's the best package for you.

You can also look at this price List for all activities which will give you some idea of what you can expect to pay. These are the exact prices that the operators charge, there are no middle man fees.

What we have found is that many people prefer to book through us because we offer a more personal and unbiased service on all activities and operators in the area. Read some of our Client comments here.

    Thanks a million once again.

    Fantastic Itinerary
    by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
    Dear Boo
    We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
    We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
    Best wishes
