The Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is where the wide Zambezi River drops some 100 meters into a narrow gorge. This magnificent waterfalls lie across the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and Livingstone is the town on the Zambian side. Called “Mosi-oa-Tunya”, (the smoke that thunders) in the local language the Falls are one of the seven wonders of the world and when you first come to Zambia, Livingstone is a must-visit destination.
Tongabezi is stretched out along the Zambezi River, nestled amongst the dense riverine forest. It has six private houses and five river cottages set on the banks of the Zambezi River, accommodating two to five guests each.
The accommodation at Tongabezi is understated elegance with a strong African influence. You are spoilt for choice when choosing the type of accommodation as there are River Cottages, Houses and Chalets. They are built on the banks

Livingstone is known as home of the Victoria Falls but also offer some game viewing opportunities from Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The park has a lot of antelope species, elephant, zebra, buffalo and perhaps what most are keen to see is the white rhino, and a pack of wild dogs.
The rhino were reintroduced in 1994 and are a major highlight as rhino in Zambia is only seen in one other place, North Luangwa. The guide walks offer the best chance to site the rhino as opposed to game drives.
The beauty of Livingstone is that you can see game even from the Zambezi River – elephants are a common site. There are many bird species as well and the most commonly see are kingfishers, African skimmers, and swallows.
There are 11 rooms in total all set along the Zambezi River.
