ZAMBIA AND ZIMBABWE
Following in Livingstone’s Footsteps
Custom Travel to Zambia and Zimbabwe
It ought to have been strange to a religious man like Livingstone, the Scottish physician and missionary, to let himself go in so many African territories. Maybe after the culture shock, he felt closer to his God before Victoria Falls’ ferocious, marvelous, whitewater spectacle and as he contemplated the region’s magical sunsets in hues as beautiful as they were unbelievable

Recommended travel time: Autumn
Any time of year is good for traveling to Zambia and Zimbabwe. The weather there is distinguished by dry and rainy seasons. Rains are heavy between November and March, when National Parks evince exuberant greenery. Animal-spotting is not as good due to abundant available water in dense savannas…but the birdwatching is spectacular.
If you’re after wildlife, it starts in June, during the dry season. September and October are the best months for spotting wild animals that gather at watering holes, rivers and lakes.
During April and May, Victoria Falls achieves peak splendor, just before the rains begin again. During this season the cataracts are the largest waterfalls on the planet.
From September to December you can take a dip in the “Devil’s Pool,” at Victoria Falls, when the water level is lowest and the experience is sufficiently safe.
It is a natural pool on a cliff more than 100 meters high, quite close to the same line from which the waters crest in all their splendor at Victoria Falls; a natural rock wall blocks it from currents.
The Scottish explorer David Livingstone was the first European to reach the falls, in 1805, and he renamed them in honor of Queen Victoria. Locally they are known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, i.e., “thundering smoke.”
