The Victoria Falls is where the wide Zambezi River simply drops some 100 meters into a narrow gorge. The Falls lie across the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and Livingstone is the town on the Zambian side. There is more to Livingstone than just visiting the Falls. The gorges themselves create many high adrenalin stunt-like opportunities; the wide and very beautiful Zambezi upstream of the Falls is wonderful for boating and canoeing. And of course the bridge is famous for bungee jumping!
Great view of the river and borders the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, with a direct view over the spray of the Victoria Falls and across the Zambezi into Zimbabwe. This Robin Pope Safaris lodge offers a combination of open sided and fully closed rooms – the former is for those seeking of adventure and wanting to take in as much of the their gorgeous African surroundings as they can. Guests can opt to stay at the lodge and lounge or choose from the endless list of activities on offer in Livingstone.
This Wilderness Safaris property is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River in the eastern sector of the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, some 12 kilometer up from the Victoria Falls.
