Who was David Livingstone?

One of the heroes of his time, Dr David Livingstone was described as the "greatest man of his generation" by Florence Nightingale. He was a fearless explorer who travelled in many parts of Africa and was the first European to come across the famous Victoria Falls, which he named after his queen. He was one of the first explorers to go across Africa from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic in the west, and his records and tales of his explorations helped to map the African continent. Dr Livingstone was also a missionary and fought tirelessly against slavery. Read more about the life of David Livingstone here.

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
