Meet friendly children from a nearby village, learn about the man behind the legend at the David Livingstone Museum, and glide down the Zambezi River on a gorgeous sunset boat cruise.

Each has two bedrooms and a private pool and benefits from the services of a private chef, making it perfect for a family stay close the Falls. Also the only place to see white rhino in Zambia.
