Livingstone District is a district of Zambia, located in Southern Province. The capital lies at Livingstone, Zambia. As of the 2000 Zambian Census, the district had a population of 103,288 people.[1] Its border with Zimbabwe is formed by the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls. Although most people live in Livingstone, other villages include Jinga Jinga in the north and Simonga in the southwest.


The Zambia road of M10, after passing through Simonga, merges into the T1 road in the city of Livingstone near St. Theresa's Catholic Church. T1 then continues on until it crosses over Victoria Falls Bridge into Zimbabwe.

Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport serves Livingstone and is connected to the downtown by Libala Drive. The airport is controlled by the National Airports Corporation Limited.[2]

Health and Education

Hospitals in the district include Batoka Hospital and Livingstone General Hospital. Schools include Nalituwe Primary School, Libala Primary School, St. Mary's Secondary School, Shungu School, Mujala School, and Linda High School.

Victoria Falls

Africa's highest waterfall, Victoria Falls, is found in the Livingstone District. Located by Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, the waterfalls cascade past Livingstone Island along the Zambezi River. Then, the river passes underneath Victoria Falls Bridge on the road T1. Victoria Falls forms part of the district's border with Zimbabwe.
