Livingstone Accommodation

The awe-inspiring Victoria Falls is considered to be one of the greatest wonders of the world. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mose-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometers, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.
