The town named after missionary and explorer David Livingstone forms the gateway to the Victoria Falls. The Zambian and Zimbabwean side of the falls offers different views. Situated within the Southern province of Zambia, the city is at the border with Zimbabwe separated by the Zambezi river and the Victoria Falls bridge. The town is a major route to the Falls, but over the years, the city developed into a great tourism town popular amongst history lovers. The Livingstone Museum and Maramba Market is worth a visit. It is a city rich in scenery and heritage, and the tourist heart of Zambia, and is a good stop over when travelling North.
