Overview
More
Livingstone Island is perched on the edge of the Victoria Falls in the very midst of this thundering mass of water. Your visit begins with a thrilling ride through the channels of the Zambezi. Thereafter, you will be taken on a guided exploration of the island, a protected World Heritage Site. If you're feeling brave, you can even take a heart-stopping peek over the island's edge to the churning mass below in the famous Devil's Pool. (no experience necessary/ no age limit)

I experienced this tour in February and Devil's Pool was closed, so we did the Angel's pool. I stayed in Zimbabwe and easily arranged a transfer to the Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia. Traveling across the border was no problem - thank you Kaza Visa....More

We had an absolute ball on this day trip... never thought I’d find myself sat in a pool at the top of Victoria Falls. An absolute MUST if you are in the area... or worth making the trip for even if you aren’t!

We were there mid July and Angels pool was open. I don’t like cold water, so it was slow getting in, but once in, it was fine and not cold when we got out. Do it, what an experience!
