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

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

If you like living life on the edge, then take the plunge and swim in Devil's Pool or Angel's Pool. Just don't ask how many people died there last year! It's an absolutely amazing experience but not for the faint hearted! I'm glad I did it and the pics are something I will treasure. The lunch was very good (once... More

Though not really in my budget, swimming on top of the falls was on my life list, so I splurged to make it happen and found that it was quite worth it. We had a small tour of the island and got to stand at the edge of the falls and look over. The water level was too high to... More

We were swimming in the Angel's Pool - so close to the edge, but protected by a guide and a rope. Lunch afterwards was delicious. Views are spectacular! Expensive, but worth it.

Imagine standing alone, on the edge of Victoria Falls, covered in spray, feeling the power of the largest sheet of falling water in the world dropping over 350 feet to the rocks below--no ropes, no railing. The adrenaline rush is mild compared to the bungee jumping some folks do, but it's a thrill and I have the photos of me... More
