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)

i booked the trip with Royal Livingstone Hotel to Livingstone island, it was one of my experience in Africa, sitting on the falls edge, dipping the Angel's pool. These experiences were not tradable, you must try your self. Such a greatness to be at the edge of the big fall like Victoria Falls! Think about it!

I was wrongly advised to try the devils' pool in April. But the water level was too high for that - so we had o settle for the Angels' pool. Still! What a view - what a thrill to seat near the edge, safely guided by the local guides. I visited with all my family, but the slippery walk to... More

Amazing food, at a superb location. We went when the river was low so we got to walk on the rocks and stand close to the edge. Best partnof the trip.

We took the boat from the Royal Livingstone Hotel to the island where we had a tour and saw the monument and the falls. Then we had high tea under canvas on the island! Lovely food and people then return to the hotel for sundowner cocktails! Wonderful!

We used Tongabezi to visit Livingstone Island and take a swim in the Devil's Pool. They were extremely professional and kept safety at the forefront of the swim. Meeting at the Royal Livingstone they take you by boat to the island, provide a guided walking tour explaining it's history, take the group for a dip in Devil's Pool and finish... More

This has been in my bucket list for a while and it did live up to the expectation. I was in two minds when to visit VF. If I come in high water time then the falls would be more impressive but the Devi's pool would be closed. Eventually decided on mid-August when the water level at the Zim side... More
