Livingstone is a town in southwestern Zambia close to the border with Zimbabwe. The town is a centre for tourism as it is close to Victoria Falls.
Victoria Falls or, in local languages, Mosi-oa-Tunya (Thundering Smoke) or Shungu Namutitima (Boiling Water) sits on the Zambezi River in southern Africa on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
It is said to be the largest waterfall in the world by combined width and height (it’s neither the tallest or the widest) and was named Victoria Falls in 1855 – after Queen Victoria – by David Livingstone who was the first European to visit.
…scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight. David Livingstone
In 2019, unusually low rain dramatically reduced the fall to the lowest flow in a century. Climate change was thought to be the cause of this.
