Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.
Livingstone is known for nature, adventure, and museums.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Livingstone road trip site.

Vienna, Austria to Livingstone is an approximately 17.5- hour combination of flight and car. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Vienna to Livingstone due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Vienna in September, expect Livingstone to be a bit warmer, temps between 32°C and 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Thu) so you can travel to Lusaka.
