The original European settlement in this area was at a place known as the Old Drift (now within the confines of the Mosi-oa-Tunya Zoological Park).
On February 5th, 1905 the settlement was officially named Livingstone after David Livingstone: the man who brought the mighty Waterfall to the world’s attention and gave them their more internationally recognized name – Victoria Falls, after his reigning monarch.
