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)

From the other reviews here we thought this tour would be a must do when on our recent trip to Africa. My husband thought it amazing, myself quite terrifying but was proud of myself that I got fairly close to the edge when I am terrified of edges. A few helpful hints I'd like to add to previous reviews. it... More

We went on that tour of the livingstone island mostly because of the angel pool swimming. We got to tour the island and got to sit on the edge of the falls. It was a tremendous experience. The tour wasn't over yet. We got to swim in one of the 2 pools on the edge of the falls. We could... More

Went on lunch excursion. Small open boat picks you up at the riverside deck Royal Livingstone hotel. Staff take extra care to ensure safety at all times. Life vests mandatory when crossing Zambezi. Amazing to watch boatman weave his craft effortlessly around submerged rocks and whirling currents to reach Livingstone Isle which is perched right on the edge of the... More

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 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

But instead the waterfall is so much more impressive. Instead of tge devils pool we enjoyed an exciting stay at the eadge of the falls in the angels pool. Lots... More
