From Victoria Falls: Livingstone Island Tour & Devils Pool

1. From Victoria Falls: Livingstone Island Tour & Devils Pool

Relax as you are taken by minibus across the border into Zambia to the Royal Livingstone Hotel for a detailed safety briefing before a 5 minute boat ride to Livingstone Island. Your guide will navigate through the Zambezi River current heading towards the column of spray rising from the Falls. Once you get to rocky Livingstone Island, the staff will welcome you with a traditional African energy drink.  Your guide will take you first to the eastern side of the island to view Rainbow Falls and the Horseshoe. Discover the island’s western side to see the Main Falls, where you’ll enjoy the magnificent torrent of water cascading over the basalt edge of the falls. This unique view of Victoria Falls offers a perspective completely different from that of the Zimbabwean side of the canyon. As the morning sun hits the mist rising from the falls, expect to see stunning rainbows. Have the chance to swim in the Devil's Pool, a once in a lifetime experience. Your guide will lead as you swim upstream in a slow current. Sit at the edge of the fall’s and Devils Pool, gazing at Victoria Falls, as immense water torrents flow just feet away. When you return to Livingstone Island, fill up on a traditional bush breakfast before your journey back to your hotel.

Our guide was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about not only the falls themselves but their history and the history of the surrounding area . He was a very helpful and patient guide, allowing us to stop and take pictures whenever we wanted.

Very good visit to the falls on the Zambian side. Very friendly guide with good explanations. We were lucky to have a rainbow and the water level at the falls was very strong.

Most amazing thing I have ever done!

What an awesome experience. You have to do it - nothing else to say.

Our guide was an hour late picking us up. We had to call.

The guides were terrific. We loved the experience!
