Livingstone was named after the first European to lay eyes on the breath taking Victoria Falls, the adventurer and missionary David Livingstone. From 1907 until 1935 it was the capital of Northern Rhodesia, modern day Zambia. In 1935 the capital was moved to Lusaka, however Livingstone is considered to be the ‘’tourism capital’’ of Zambia. Today Livingstone is rich in beautiful landscapes and cultural heritage, making it the beating heart of the tourism industry. People with a love for history and architecture will surely fall in love with Livingstone. Many buildings from the early nineteen hundreds are still being used today. This impressive city has a lot to offers visitors however, the city is most famous for the nearby Victoria Falls. These falls have been described as one of the seven natural wonders of the world and with this title, are on the world heritage list. In the language of the indigenous Tonga people the waterfall is called Mosi-oa-Tunya, translated this means ‘‘the smoke that thunders’’...
