Livingstone, 5 km north of the Victoria Falls, is the tourist capital of Zambia. The Victoria Falls, situated a few kilometers from Livingstone, are considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Here the Zambezi River falls headlong over a 1 000 m wide expanse into a chasm 100 m below. The Knife Edge footbridge, spanning a narrow ridge of rock between the mainland and an island, provides an excellent viewpoint. The Livingstone area offers various adventure activities.
