Livingstone
Livingstone owes its existence to the Victoria Falls. It was named after the missionary and explorer Dr. David Livingstone, the first European to discover, name and tell the rest of world about the mighty waterfall.

Known as the tourism capital of Zambia, the town is better oriented towards visitors than else where in the country. It is located about 10km from the thundering Victoria Falls, the town remained relatively unknown until recently. It's a town ringing with the buzz of adrenaline adventure activities from the legendary whitewater rafting to bungy jumping. Livingstone is the perfect end, or beginning, to a southern African safari.

Livingstone is a compact town and easy to get around, with a few interesting sights along the main road. These include the Livingstone Museum, which houses memorabilia related to David Livingstone and his exploration of the region in the 1850s, and the Railway Museum.

 
Mosi Oa Tunya National Park
Assessable to visitors throughout the year, the Victoria Falls National Park in north-western Zimbabwe protects the south and east bank of the Zambezi River in the area of the world-famous Victoria Falls. It covers 23.4 km≤ extending from the larger Zambezi National Park about 6 km above the falls to about 12 km below the falls.

A noteworthy feature of the park is the rainforest which grows in the spray of the falls, including ferns, palms, liana vines, and a number of trees such as mahogany not seen elsewhere in the region. While walking through the park's rain-forest guests will notice an eye-catching rainbow created by a fine mist of droplets.

Visitors have the opportunity to view elephant, cape buffalo, white rhino, hippopotamus, eland and a variety of other antelope during drives and walking safaris. Crocodiles may be seen in the river, and a nearby Crocodile Ranch offers a safer view of these dangerous animals.

Victoria falls Town
Victoria Falls is a town in the province of Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. It lies on the southern bank of the Zambezi River at the eastern end of the Victoria Falls themselves. It is connected by road and railway to Hwange (109 km away) and Bulawayo (440 km away), both to the south-east.

It became the principal tourism centre for the Falls, experiencing economic booms from the 1930s to early 1990s. It was formed by a meteor crashing down to the earth and shifting the land.

Victoria Falls, affectionately abbreviated to Vic Falls by anyone who's been there, is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles. Declared a World Heritage Site, the falls - and much of the town of the same name - fall within a 23.4km2 national park that neighbours the 573km2 Zambezi National Park.

 
 
Victoria Falls Gorge
The continuous volume of the Zambezi River thunders through the First Gorge's 110-metre-wide (360 ft) exit for a distance of about 150 metres (500 ft), then enters a labyrinth of gorges designated by the order in which the river reaches them. Water entering the Second Gorge makes a sharp right turn and has carved out a deep pool there called the Boiling Pot. Reached via a steep footpath from the Zambian side, it is about 150 metres (500 ft) across. Its surface is smooth at low water, but at high water is marked by enormous, slow swirls and heavy boiling turbulence.

Objects that are swept over the falls, including the occasional hippo or even human, are frequently found swirling about here or washed up at the north-east end of the Second Gorge.

The walls of the gorges are nearly vertical and generally about 120 metres (400 ft) high, but the level of the river in them varies by up to 20 metres (65 ft) between wet and dry seasons.
