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) « less

Can't believe tourists, or people for that matter, are allowed to walk on the edge of the falls! Loved that we were able to enjoy a meal so close to the edge of Victoria Falls. It was crazy just taking a boat and heading towards the edge of the falls. Also, you don't have to get too close to the... More

My adrenaline was already pumping after getting soaked at Victoria Falls and jumping off the bridge, but the day was just getting started. Our guide took us over to The Royal Livingstone Hotel to catch a small boat. The trip to Livingstone Island is just one of many activities that Tongabezi offers. We loaded onto the boat and could see... More

Defiantly a must. It was recommended to me to do the breakfast ($80 US) so I did the 10.30 breakfast tour. You meet at the Royal Livingstone Hotel (which is a really beautiful Resort) and you take a boat to the Island where you are greeted by your guide. If you are willing to get went be sure to pack...

Voted our number 1 experience in Livingstone by our 20 year old son - even better than white water rafting and the bungee. Standing right on the edge of the falls both Zim and Zam sides was just amazing, and felt completely safe, our two guides (for 6 of us) were unhurried and very willing to help - using our... More

I loved this - I was advised that the Devils Pool was closed, which was one of the main reasons for visiting the falls (blame my travel agents (liberty/dmafrica/vayeni don't use them)), but happened to see them swimming in Angels pool from the Falls tour on the other side so booked the Livingstone Island lunch tour which is the only...

I went for high tea on Livingstone Island and, although a little bit overpriced, it was well worth it. They first give you a tour around the island, including the (extremely scary) pool - one of the best experiences you can have at Victoria Falls! The guide was kind enough to take some really good pictures while adventuring himself right... More

One company has the monopoly on this tour. It runs directly from the Royal Livingstone Hotel. It is the only way to get to Livingstone Island and if you want to see the falls as it flows over the edge of the canyon, you must do it this way. The tour is short. It is about 5 minutes to get... More

Because of the high water level we did not enjoy Devil's Pool, instead the tour took us to Angel's pool, which is less dangerous but it is still scary and fun to do. It is true that the price was too much and the tour was just too short and we did not have time to stay in the Island... More

Booked "High Tea" on Livingstone Island in late June. Water was still quite high so no Devil's Pool but still an opportunity for those who wished to sit in one of the other pools close to the edge. Short tour of the island and interesting history. But forcing you to book a "meal" (breakfast, lunch, high tea, etc) seems to... More

I visited the island in early July when the water was relatively low but not low enough for devils pool. No matter though, the other two pools are just as scary and ridiculously close to the edge. At one point you stand on a rock that is the actual edge of the falls whilst your guide stands there explaining different... More
