This is the ultimate, the finale of the campaign “Visit Zambia 2005”. But again it’s the beginning of the more exciting times for Zambia safari.

  6. The 100th birth day for the late Secretary General of the United Nations, Dag Hammerskjeold, who died in a plane crash at Ndola, Zambia on September 18, 1961.
  7. and the 150 years since Dr David Livingstone discovered the Victoria Falls.

Wow… and that’s quite a few centennials!

The Livingstone Events Organisation (LEO) has set up activities that will culminate into the grand finale of the “Visit Zambia 2005” campaign on November 16, the day Dr Livingstone sighted the world wonder, the Victoria Falls, 150 years ago!

Zambia is taking special interest in this event. The world has been invited to celebrate with Zambian. The visitors will include the grand children and the great-grand children of Dr Livingstone. Now that’s a lot of ‘grands’ the “Visit Zambia 2005” campaign will take on board.

So far two of Dr Livingstone's great grand children Dr David Livingstone Wilson and Dierdre Nyasa Rolf Livingstone have accepted to come to Zambia.

According to the Livingstone Centenary Celebrations 2005, the 150 years anniversary celebrations of Dr Livingstone’s sighting of the Victoria Falls would be held on 15th and 16th November in Livingstone, a town closest to the Victoria Falls in Zambia.
