Livingstone Activities FAQ's

Below is a list of some frequently asked questions about Livingstone activities. If you have any questions that we don't answer below, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to assist you with advice or any queries you may have with regards to what activities to do while you visit Livingstone.

We accept guests of all ages on most Livingstone activities. However, there are a few Adventurous Livingstone activities that are too dangerous for young children such as bungee jumping (minimum age 14 years) and white water rafting. (minimum age 15 years)

Children under the age of 12 pay half price on most Livingstone activities. The helicopter flights are an exception where children pay the full amount.

National Parks fees are not part of Livingstone activities prices. They are an additional fee charged by the Government when you enter the National Park, and help to maintain the Victoria Falls, Zambezi River and the surrounding National Park areas. These fees are to paid on arrival before your Livingstone activity if applicable.

Your safety and enjoyment are our main concern. Your Livingstone activities may be delayed due to weather conditions. Normally rainstorms only last about half an hour in Livingstone, so be patient, we will try to ensure you get to experience your activity. If you are unable to do the activity in Livingstone because of bad weather, we will refund you for the activity in full.

The water level of the Zambezi River varies remarkably throughout the year and this does affect some of the activities in Livingstone. The Livingstone region receives seasonal rainfall, and therefore the amount of water flowing over the Victoria Falls changes drastically.

The water level is at its lowest point around November each year. At this time of year the water falls mainly in the deeper section of the river on the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls. During the low water season some areas of the Zambian side dry up completely leaving a gigantic crack of exposed bare rock in the earth. This may not be as spectacular as the Victoria Falls in full flood.

The water level is at its highest between April and May. During these months the Victoria Falls are a thundering wall of falling water and the spray from the falls can obscure the view.

So which time of year is best for Livingstone activities and to visit Livingstone? The real answer is all year round. During the dryer months between June and September you are more likely to spot wildlife in Livingstone, but during the wetter months, the Victoria Falls themselves are more impressive.

During the Jurassic Period (150-200 million years ago), volcanic activity resulted in thick basalt deposits covering large parts of Southern Africa. As the lava cooled and solidified, cracks appeared in the hard basalt crust, which were filled with clay and lime. Erosion and the course of the mighty Zambezi River cut through these softer materials, forming the first of a series of waterfalls and providing us with some adventurous Victoria Falls activities.

Livingstone Adrenalin Activities

So you like a good adrenaline rush do you? One of the most adventurous things to do in Livingstone is bungee jumping. The 111-meter drop will give you four seconds to enjoy the view before you reach the bottom of your bungee, and you’re on your way up again. Just remember to bring your passport. The Zambezi River is the border between Livingstone, Zambia and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe so you’ll need it when walking onto the bridge which connects the two countries. If the bungee jump doesn't tickle your fancy why not try a bridge swing or for the more passive the bridge slide. Whatever your flavour, the Victoria Falls bridge hosts and array and adventurous Livingstone activities. Alternatively why not take to the rapids and challenge yourself to a day of white water rafting on the World famous Zambezi rapids.
