Livingstone

Livingstone, also known as Maramba, is a historic colonial city on the southern border of Zambia. Incorporated as part of Northern Rhodesia under Cecil John Rhodes, the town gained prominence in the 19th century as a trading hub for passage across the Zambezi River.

As trade and industry in the region has declined, the town has embraced the tourist trade that comes naturally to it. Just 6.2 miles (10km) from the Zambezi River, Livingstone is a popular gateway to the mighty Victoria Falls and has benefitted from the hordes of tourists that flock there each year. Its colonial past means the city has a number of historical buildings; and several good museums devoted to archaeology, history, ethnography, geology, railways, and of course the town's namesake: David Livingstone.

Livingstone is a great base from which to explore the abundant nature and wildlife of southern Zambia. Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park offers birdwatching and game safaris, and a number of cruises and water activities are available along the Zambezi River.

Information & Facts

Language

There are over 73 dialects spoken in Zambia, but the official language is English. All business is in English and most Zambians speak it fairly well.

Money

The Zambian currency is the Kwacha (ZMK), divided into 100 ngwee, but the coins are now worthless and seldom used. It is best to bring travellers cheques, US Dollars or Pounds Sterling which can be exchanged at the many bureaux de change found in the main towns. While most of the tourist hotels, restaurants, travel agents and larger shops, especially in Lusaka and Livingstone, accept credit cards many outlets in the rural areas do not and deal only in local currency. ATMs are available in Lusaka and some of the major towns. Banking hours vary but are usually 8.30am to 2.30pm on weekdays and mornings of the first and last Saturday of the month.

Time

Local time in Zambia is GMT +2.
