town was founded in 1904, when the Victoria Falls Bridge was completed. It was
named after David Livingstone and was 1911-1935 the capital of Northern
Falls is the jewel in the crown of Zambia’s natural heritage and a must-see for
many visitors. The Falls changes season to season, year to year, at its height
usually in May the thundering cascade is an awe inspiring, soaking experience
as curtains of spray are thrown high into the air and the full majesty of the
falls can only be glimpsed occasionally as the veil of spray parts. Towards the
end of the year in October through to December the Zambezi withdraws to the
deeper channels exposing a vast rocky shelf of black basalt.
In Livingstone itself there are various eateries
and retail establishments, the main point of interest is the Livingstone Museum
founded in 1930 which contains archaeological and other exhibits.
