Livingstone City was Capital of Zambia (Northern Rhodesia) from 1911 up to 1935 when the administrative capital was shifted to Lusaka . This tourist capital lies 11 kilometres from the Victoria Falls.
The city’s business district lies along the town’s principal thoroughfare, Mosi-oa-tunya Road. Some parts along the road are lined with classic colonial buildings with spacious wooden verandas and iron roofs.
In recent years the town has witnessed an exciting programme of construction and development, with the impressive Zambezi waterfront one of the top-rated tourist destinations in southern Africa.
The most well-known attraction is the mighty Victoria Falls, located about 11km from the City. When it’s at its peak just after the rain season, an average of 550,000 cubic liters of water pours down the cliff in a minute. The first white man to see the falls was the Scottish explorer David Livingstone, who was thrilled by the falls that he named it after Queen Victoria of England. The nearby Mosi-oa-tunya National Park is home to antelopes, zebra and the recently re-introduced white rhino. Bird watching and wild life safaris are under taken in the game park.
