Greenpop. Zambia. – When in Livingstone, take a visit to the Livingstone Museum, in the heart of this frontier town. Established in 1934, its the largest and oldest museum in Zambia and holds a vast archaeological collection, a collection
Greenpop. Zambia. – Whilst in the Livingstone area working as a media partner for Greenpop, I spent the afternoon at Victoria Falls. Aptly named ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. The water levels were at their highest, with an estimated
Greenpop. Zambia. – After the surreal experience of Victoria Falls, I highly recommend that you visit the Royal Livingstone Hotel for either high tea or sundowners. This is one of the best located establishments I know, with
