OVERVIEW ON DAVID LIVINGSTONE SAFARI LODGE & SPA – VICTORIA FALLS
The thunder of the falling water and towering column of spray. The Victoria Falls in Livingstone offers an inescapable closeness to the natural elements and it is this true grandeur that lends a backdrop to the regal David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa. These great and famous falls, named by Dr. David Livingstone for his queen, Victoria, in November 1855, were well known to the indigenous peoples of Southern Africa by many names, perhaps the most meaningful being Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders).
