Set out on a guided tour of Victoria Falls and Livingstone today. Spend the rest of the day as you like, or arrange for additional activities in Livingstone or through your camp. A variety of adventure activities are offered along the Zambezi River and in the immediate area for those with more time after they tour the falls. Try whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, or river boarding. Visit the Livingstone museum and learn about its history. Or opt to wander the market stalls in Livingstone and enjoy the urban lifestyle. This evening enjoy a guided sundowner cruise on the Zambezi River, spotting crocodiles and hippos along the banks.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
