Livingstone is an interesting town and you should take a morning to spend time here. It has not been modernized and the old colonial buildings are still there. In places you certainly feel like you are dropping back fifty years. The museum is a gem and well worth a visit and if you don't mind being a little pushed, so is the market. 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. 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 must visit destination. Of course 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 jumping off! One of the top things to book is a few hours on Livingstone Island - this is a small island right on the edge of the Falls. Here you are not looking at the Falls but are right on the edge, as the water starts to tumble over. Quite an experience. Then there is viewing the Falls like the angels, from above - by helicopter or microlight.
