One of the lesser known activities on offer to Guests at Chanters Lodge, Livingstone is The Real Livingstone Bicycle Tour. Organized by Mrs Hermine – who, incidentally also has a smashing garden nursery located in ‘217’ – two tours are offered. Bicycles used are Raleigh MTB.
The Real Africa Township
This 3 hour guided tour takes visitors to Maramba and Linda districts of Livingstone and affords Guests the chance to see where Livingstone residents play sport, pray, live, shop and eat, as well as seeing some local culture, education facilities and the care of the not so young. The tour takes in the local markets, Lubasi Old Peoples’ Home as well as one of the local schools and the cost is US$25 per person.
The Victoria Falls
Crossing the Maramba River through part of the Mosi-o-Tunya National Park to the Zambezi riverside and the mighty Victoria Falls. This tour is also 3 hours and the cost is US$30 per person which does not include the entry fee to the Falls.
Tours are morning 09.00-12.00 hrs or afternoon 14.00-17.00 hrs.
The bicycles are also available for hire at US$15 per day.
The Real Africa Township Tour has proved very popular with our Clients. They have delighted in being able to see a side of Livingstone and Africa that few tourists experience and have commented that it is indeed the real Africa!
