The Livingstone International Cultural and Arts Festival (LICAF) is an annual cultural tourism festivals under the initiative of the Zambia Tourism Agency. The purpose of the festival to promote increased arrivals of both international and domestic tourists to Livingstone in particular and Zambia in general through celebrating Africa’s Cultural Identity and diversity in song, food, dress and dance. The festival takes place in March every year.


The festival is among the fastest growing in Africa ,making Livingstone-Zambia an irresistible destination if you want to experience the thrill and hypnotizing power of African music and dance; 73 Zambian tribes from 10 countries.. encapsulated in one festival .. all happening at a time of the year when the Mighty Victoria Falls is at its thundering best dropping down more than 500 cubic meters of water every second. As if the festival and the Victoria Falls were not compelling reason enough to go to Livingstone, the destination also offers mind blowing adventure activities such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, wildlife safaris, helicopter rides, steam train rides, and many more. LICAF started as a side event of the 20th Session of the UNWTO General Assembly (which Zambia and Zimbabwe co-hosted in August 2013). But thanks to the Zambia Tourism Agency, LICAF is now an annual event that showcases the best of Zambia’s rich cultural heritage. It is also a platform for cultural exchange as regional and international groups join in the fun!
