 waterfrontLivingstone Zambia

After searching quite hard in Zambia for the ideal party venue to celebrate this coming New Year, we found that the most likely venue to put out the “PARTAAY” will be the Waterfront in Livingstone. There will no doubt be a great mix of travelers, locals, backpackers and white water rafters to meet.

Location: Zambezi Waterfront Livingstone


Where has this year gone?! Just as a reminder, our epic New Years Eve party isn’t all that far away. With the brilliant  Me and Mr Brown flying in from Cape Town to entertain you with their fantastic music, this year is going to be a goodie.

There will also be marquee’s over the deck, a dance floor, 3 bars, a shooter bar and snacks.
