Did you know that Livingstone's Mosi-oa-Tunya NP got Square-lipped Rhinos aka White Rhinos? In the morning when it is still cool we will head to the national park and go on a walking safari. This is our chance to see nature from the ground level, check for tracks, talk about plants and their use. The aim is to find some of the White Rhinos and see them from a close range. After this exhausting exercise we have a picnic by the river.
A visit to Livingstone isn't complete without seeing the Victoria Falls. To do this is the plan for the afternoon.
