What would you do if you had just 24 hours to explore Livingstone in Zambia?  Television presenter and actor Kat Sinivasen went on a day adventure to one of the most gorgeous places in the continent.

Sinivasen visited the town as part of Avani Hotels and Resorts #AVANIme YouTube series, which aims to inspire travellers to visit the resort’s destinations across the world.

“Come experience the wild and wonderful Victoria Falls over 24 hours with me,” he announced before jumping on a helicopter to take in the gorgeous views of Batoka Gorge and Victoria Falls.

The South African personality managed to see hippos before he jumped off a cliff! Back safely on land, Sinivasen interacted with the African Cheetahs, even petting one, during a cheetah walk.

He said: “No travel handbook in the world could describe this experience.”

He later fueled up at the Elephant Cafe, situated on the edge of the Zambezi River. It is here that a herd of rescued elephants roam free.

Guests get to enjoy the stunning views and interact with the friendly elephants, while they tuck into a meal.

Judging from all the outfit changes, Sinivasen had an eventful day.

Culture vultures, as he calls them, would love The Livingstone Museum, formerly David Livingstone Memorial Museum and Rhodes-Livingstone Museum.

The museum is known as the country’s largest and the oldest museum in Zambia.

Then it was off for a stroll to Mukuni Park Curio Market- which is bursting with vibrant colours and shops that promote local businesses.

“It is like opening Pandora's box. You never know what you will find…” During his exploring, he got a bag for his mom from Waya Waya,  a sustainable business that empowers women, and a few traditional shirts for himself.

The rather luxury escape also included a river safari on the Zambezi River, horseback riding and Victorian style dining on the Royal Livingstone Express.

He ended off his 24 hours with a Boma Dinner experience at Avani Victoria Falls Resort’s Mukuni Boma Village, which overlooks the Victoria Falls.
