School is finally out! Question is what to do with the family before the kids get back? Taking a trip to the tourist capital doesn’t sound like a bad idea. As the home of the Victoria Falls and the surrounding Zambezi region, Livingstone is the hotbed of activity and tourism for Central Africa.
There’s no shortage of things to do in Livingstone this April. The weather is typically mild at this time of the year, so you’ll probably have ample time to walk the City streets and admire the famous historical Livingstone sights. However, because the weather is proving to be occasionally unpredictable, we recommend creating a travel itinerary with both indoor and outdoor events.
Listed below are a few of the awesome things to do this April in Livingstone.
1. Mosi Day of Thunder
The all-day Mosi Day of Thunder experience, which is to be held on April 30, will showcase Zambia’s best musicians and performers. It is expected to be the biggest concert ever held in Livingstone, featuring some of the winners of the Zambia Music Awards. According to the organisers, South African hip-hop artiste, Cassper Nyovest, is expected to perform alongside his Zambian counterparts to celebrate music and culture. The concert will take place at the Livingstone Royal Golf Club from 12pm and tickets are fetching for an unbelievable K50 at any Shoprite outlet or Computicket. Sounds like a fun one for the kids.
2. Victoria Falls Bridge Company – Bungee
This one is for the fearless, adrenaline junkies out there. The ultimate thrill! 4 seconds of ecstasy inducing freefall, 111m of pure adrenaline. This bungee, flanked by stunning Victoria Falls, is probably the most remarkable in the world. You could do this for $130 per person. Visit www.victoriafallsbungee.com for a comprehensive list of all their offerings.
3. Spa and Wellness
A number of world-class spa and wellness experiences are on offer in gorgeous Livingstone. A bonus is the incredible natural beauty of the area which sets the scene for absolute indulgence, away from it all. The David Livingstone Health Spa and Wellness Centre is among the many spots to get pampered, de-stressed and have a wonderful experience.
4. Victoria Falls
This is a no-brainer! You cannot visit Livingstone and not make a stop at the amazing Victoria Falls. In the words of David Livingstone, after whom the City is named, “No one can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England. It had never been seen before by European eyes; but scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” Enough said!
This is by no stretch of the imagination an exhaustive list. But it is certainly a list of some of the most exciting things to do this April. So clear your calendar, pack those bags and get into that car for a fun 6-7 hour drive (if you’re from Lusaka). If you don’t feel like being on the road for that long – understandably so – Proflight Zambia offers a really good deal – you could fly return to Livingstone for less than K2,000 and be in the tourist capital in under an hour; they have a special on group travellers too. Head on over to their website for more details.
