When we think of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe comes to mind. We hardly associate Victoria Falls with Zambia. Fun fact Victoria Falls is in both Zimbabwe and Zambia. It’s just busier on the Zimbabwe side but there is so much you can do on the Zambia side. You find interesting things on the Zambian side that you would find in Zimbabwe like walking with lions in Livingston or swimming in the devil’s pool. Here are some exciting things you can do in Zambia.
