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)

The boat trip is exciting as it was just passing near the water falls. The staff in the island was very helping and courteous. The food was nice. The chef made our food based on our choices. The death pool is thrilling and there are no words to speak about the rainbows.

We walked barefeet over muddy, slippery... More

We did the breakfast trip of Livingstone Island. After a short ride on a small motorized boat to the island, we were met by our guides who were thorough and professional. We walked bare feet to the edge of the Falls with them and they took some memorable photos and videos. The walk was muddy and slippery but the guides... More

I booked the Livingstone Island tour through the activities desk at the Royal Livingstone Hotel. It was about $160, and I was a little hesitant since they said that the Devil's Pool was closed due to high water. It turns out that there is another pool on the other side of the island (Angel's Pool) that operates until the water... More

We did the lunch tour to the island. It was an experience of a lifetime. Swimming in the Angel Pool was both terrifying and breath taking. The lunch was delicious and we'll prepared. The chef came out and introduced the courses to us, and they made sure that our dietary restrictions were taken care of. This is a must to... More

If you are in Victoria Falls and Livingstone Island is open do not miss it - it is unbelievable! We were there in February and the water was too high for Devil's Pool but a smaller pool on the edge on the other side of the island was available to swim in - Angel Pool. It was too cool -... More
