What people are saying about North-West District

We went on an absolutely amazing white water rafting tour on the Zambezi River! The Maano Adventures team is a local tour agency working with wonderful people from Livingston and the villages around the Zambezi. They were all incredibly helpful and fun! They went above and beyond to make this an unforgettable experience for everyone. We even got to go see the Victoria Falls after the tour, when they were already supposed to close for the day. Thank you again to the whole team of guides, drivers, and all the helpers. 100% recommend Maano Adventures!! Kristina and Daniel P.s. we did the tour from Kasane. At the border you can buy a one-day visa for 20$ (Make sure to bring dollars, they do not accept credit card or pula).
