Why September, you might wonder? It’s not merely about the delightful weather, although that’s a significant factor. September in Livingstone brings a perfect fusion of adventure, serenity, and wildlife viewing. It’s our favourite time of the year in Livingstone!

Embrace Adventurous Escapades:

September’s perfect weather sets the stage for poolside chillaxing at Jollyboys, whether you’re engrossed in a captivating book or bonding with fellow globe-trotters. And speaking of adventure, the start of September heralds the reopening of the iconic Devil’s Pool at Livingstone Island. The intrepid explorer within you can plunge into the refreshing waters right at the edge of Victoria Falls – a truly unparalleled experience unique to Zambia. This is also the spot where David Livingstone first witnessed the Victoria Falls in 1855, though we doubt that he brought his swim trunks! He did however write in his diary: ‘Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight’.

Victoria Falls in September: A Symphony of Water and Stone

September transforms Victoria Falls as the Zambezi River’s water levels descend towards their lowest levels. Gaze upon the magnificent rock formations exposed by the over 100-meter drop into the Batoka Gorge. This unique spectacle crafts individual waterfalls that etch an intricate canvas of nature’s artistry. For the adventurous souls, a climb in and out of the Boiling Pot at the base of Victoria Falls is rewarded with a view from the base of the falls’ sheer grandeur.
