Top 15 things to do in Southern Province

1. Victoria Falls, Livingstone

Set your gaze upon Victoria Falls, the largest falls in the world. The waterfall is named in honor of Queen Victoria of Britain by a Scottish missionary, who perceived his discovery only as an obstacle to his preaching of Christianity to the whole of the African continent. Also called Mosi-oa-Tunya, "the smoke that thunders," by the local people, the falls extend 1,708 m (5,604 ft) across and 108 m (354 ft) in height. See the columns of spray from miles away plunging to the gorge below. To reach the falls you have to trek a road through the forest, so wear appropriate shoes.

Meet the fearsome beasts at Livingstone Crocodile Park, a sanctuary for some of the town's deadliest reptiles. The center provides a safe home for crocodiles from the Zambezi River, reported by villagers after posing a threat to their livestock or humans. Instead of allowing the animals to be destroyed by farmers, the sanctuary gives them a comfortable alternative--a home with the look and feel of their natural habitat. Learn about the dangers posed by the crocs, and the dangers they themselves face in the wild, as you tour the site with one of the trained guides.

13. Victoria Falls, Livingstone

Victoria Falls (Lozi: Mosi-oa-Tunya, "The Smoke That Thunders"; Tonga: Shungu Namutitima, "Boiling Water") is a waterfall on the Zambezi River in southern Africa, which provides habitat for several unique species of plants and animals. It is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and is one of the world's largest waterfalls, with a width of 1,708 m (5,604 ft).

Archeological sites and oral history describe a long record of African knowledge of the site. Though known to some European geographers before the 19th century, Scottish missionary David Livingstone identified the falls in 1855, providing the English colonial name of Victoria Falls after Queen Victoria. Since the mid 20th century, the site has been an increasingly important source of tourism. Zambia and Zimbabwe both have national parks and tourism infrastructure at the site. Research in the late 2010s found that climate change caused precipitation variability is likely to change the character of the fall.
