Attraction details
Owner description: 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 tour to Livingstone is a beautiful and stunning experience, but allowed far less time in the pool than I expected. We were given a short tour of the island including several photo opportunities, swam across to the pool, got in, took a few pictures, and were told to get out. I was hoping for a bit of time to...

It's only possible to get to the island in the dry season so we wanted to take the opportunity while we could. We took the boat from the Royal Livingstone Hotel with the objective of getting a unique view of the Main Falls and enjoying lunch on an island right in the edge of the falls. And, to have the...

You'd be utterly mad not to do this trip if you are visiting the falls. It isn't cheap but it is the best experience hands down. Guides are EXCELLENT

It is highly recommendable and a must while in the Falls. by the questions that are below, the... More

Well done and a BIG thank you to the guys at Livingstone Island. After our tour when we got back to our hotel and looked at our photos, we realised what a brilliant job the guides had done in taking photos on our cameras. Not only are the guides good fun but they are also highly skilled and patient camera... More

Initially we thought this trip was a bit expensive at around US$125 per person but the chance to swim in the Devil's Pool persuaded us to do it and it was just amazing. We travelled by boat from our hotel (Royal Livingstone) to the island where we spent 10 minutes looking at the Falls from the Zambia side. We then... More

I really wanted to swim at Devil's Pool but due to the high waters this was not an option. I opted for the Livingstone Island tour and this was incredible. You get to 'swim' (enter) the fast-flowing waters on either side of the island, which is a massive thrill! The breakfast afterwards was fabulous, albeit rushed. This is an expensive... More

THIS was the event our adult children wanted to do on our African vacation !! It was everything and more than we expected... We booked this from the states, so it was already arranged (we did meet folks that arranged the trip last minute at the hotel). You are picked up by a small boat at the Royal Livingstone Hotel...

We'd heard great things about the Devil's Pool experience - and though the water level was still a bit too high to visit that pool (we ended up at Angel's) - I'd thoroughly recommend this activity... But space is very limited - and it books up fast. We booked our spot before we arrived in Livingstone (which I'd recommend.) After... More

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
