Livingstone, Zambia

Livingstone is located in the Southern Province of Zambia bordering Zimbabwe.  Through its’ proximity to the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls the city has become a natural destination for travelers from around the world.  Named after David Livingstone, the first European to explore the area, it was described by the Kololo tribe as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The smoke that thunders.’  In more modern terms, Victoria Falls is known as one of the seven natural wonders of the world.  While the town has preserved much of its colonial character it is a typical African town with a busy charm.  

Livingstone’s contemporary culture is a blend of traditions from over 70 ethnically diverse people.  More than 20 annual traditional ceremonies are performed throughout the year providing valuable insight into the customs and culture that have been passed down from generation to generation.  Rich in scenery and heritage, Livingstone has become the tourist heart of Zambia.

In June 2012, a Sister Cities Agreement was signed between officials of Santa Fe and Livingstone.  The two cities agreed they share many rich traditions and customs native to their regions along with the intrinsic beauty that lies in their perspective landscapes.  Their agreement explores cultural and educational exchanges between the two cities.
