I recently travelled to Livingstone, Zambia, to experience a three-and-a-half day rafting trip down the Zambezi River with Safari Par Excellence.
1 July saw the kick off a Livingstone-based reforestation and conservation education project aptly named, Trees for Zambia. I was lucky enough to join Greenpop’s three-week, 5000 tree programme for a week of planting, learning, teaching and merriment.
About 13 years ago I was racing the setting red sun somewhere between Lusaka and South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, trying to find somewhere to stay for the night.
The Zambezi Queen, a luxury houseboat, has chic interiors, minimalist furniture, five-star gourmet food, wonderful staff, and an incredible setting on the Chobe River between Botswana and Namibia.
On August 26th Lion Encounter Zambia will release a pride of six captive bred female lions into a specially built semi-wild area deep within the Dambwa Forest.
On the banks of the Zambezi lies The David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa. From touching down on Friday in Livingstone, to being chauffeured to the airport on Sunday, my days at The David Livingstone were filled with pampering, good food and great hospitality.
Livingstone in Zambia boasts a long list of exciting things to do from bungee jumping off Victoria Falls Bridge to sunset cruises on the mighty Zambezi River. Livingstone is a bustling town, easily accessible with accommodation options to suit every pocket. Definitely worth a visit!
Victoria Falls and the other wonders of Zambia have never been easier to reach now that Zambezi Airlines is flying direct to Livingstone from Cape Town.
I’m on a press trip to the Royal Livingstone Hotel in Livingstone, Zambia, and so far it’s been fabulous.
