Customer Travel Tip: One and a half days in more than enough for Livingstone, but it's proximity to Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe make it a great jumping off point. Chobe national park just over the border of Botswana in particular is really incredible!

Liked: Obviously Victoria Falls is the main attraction in Livingstone, but a trip to Chobe over the border in Botswana is also not to be missed. An area of incredible beauty! Watch out at Vic Falls though, they no longer accept US dollars or rand contrary to all their websites and official tourist materials. I was told rather rudely that it was Kwatcha only and there are no exchange facilities there. It's a $10 usd taxi ride back into town as well to change your money.

Disliked: Airport is a mess - very disorganized and rude staff. This was commented on by quite a few travelers around me as well.
