We did a border run over to Livingstone in Zambia whilst we were at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Having changed travel plans, we were no longer scheduled to visit Zambia, but not wanting to let our $300 yellow fever vaccinations (required for entry) go to waste, we decided to do a quick visit to Livingstone, about 10km across the border from Zimbabwe into Zambia.
