Being just a few kilometres away from the famed Victoria Falls, the city of Livingstone has much to offer. Sporting a calm refreshing vibe and home to great restaurants and luxury opportunities, this city doesn’t fail to impress. For a truly unforgettable experience head out to the Livingstone Island where natures infinity pool awaits you, along with boating facilities and the very best of cuisines. It is however worth noting that during March and May this facility is closed for safety reasons. Mosi-oa Tunya National Park is also a must visit, being Zambia’s smallest national park, and surrounded by the Victoria Falls, the view is magnificent. After experiencing the wilderness and adventure, make your way to city streets and explore the colonial history and African feel therein.
The Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International airport is approximately 20 kilometres from the city centre.
Among the top airlines that are hosted by Harry Mwanga Airport include British Airways, Kenya Airways and South African Airways.
As per usual practice, local cab and bus services are provided to and from the airport. Radio cabs are also an available option.
This would primarily depend on what activities you wish pursue. Taxis and buses are an option. There are two official bus companies with their own platforms which also serve for inter border crossings into neighbouring countries, including South Africa. Hotels also facilitate hotel transfers to major landmarks as well as their own branches in other cities. For more crowded places in the middle of the town, walking would be the best option.
The most suitable time to visit Livingstone is from August till October. However most prefer the months of July and August.
Travel time for this flight would be 13 hours and 40 minutes inclusive of one or maximum two stopovers.
There are no direct flights to Livingstone from the UK.
Livingstone holds its promise to provide luxury by nesting hotels such as the Zambezi Sun, splurge as you indulge and pamper yourself. Top end options also include the Protea Hotel Livingstone. However Livingstone does offer diversity by offering low key budget hotels such as the Ngolide Lodge and the Livingstone Backpackers. The Jollyboys Backpackers remains to be travellers top pick as it offers everything a backpacker would need, including cheap restaurants, clean rooms, a sunken lounge and coffee served right next to the pool.
