Life and Death at the Old Drift
Victoria Falls, 1898-1905


Life and Death at the Old Drift, Victoria Falls 1898-1905

Discover the Days of the Old Drift

The Old Drift holds a unique place within the story of the development of the region, established in 1898 and marking the main crossing point on the river for European travellers and traders heading north into the Kingdom of Barotseland (Western Zambia). For a brief period this small settlement was a pivotal point in the transport of goods and people across the river before the arrival of the railway in mid 1904, and the opening of the Victoria Falls Bridge in 1905, shifted the axis of activity away from the Old Drift, and the small settlement was abandoned to the bush in favour of the new town of Livingstone. Fully illustrated with over 80 archive images and photographs. [168 pages]
