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)

What a feeling! To be sitting in the middle of the Devil's pool at the Victoria Falls was an unbelievable experience for us. I had previously watched videos on You tube but never thought I would do it myself! We were picked up from the sun deck at Royal Livingstone hotel and taken to the Livingstone island via a speedboat... More

All the Vic Falls attractions are quite expensive and this is no exception. However, you'll enjoy a fantastic close up view of the falls drop, will take home lots of great shots, and will have some nice food right in the middle of all that. We choose the breakfast as it was cheaper and the food was very filling anyway.... More

Staff were rude, left us behind because they overbooked! No one explained that they would charge us even if we did not get on the boat. We were disgusted by their attitude. Never see me again! They were late, uncommuncative

We have never been so close to the edge of a world famous Fall ! It's definitely worthwhile to take on this trip (if you are not afraid of height, etc.) though the Island was tiny and the tour was short but it's a totally new experience. Guests were picked up from the Cafe at The Royal Livingstone Hotel to... More

Nature's own infinity pool... Take your swimming trunks and get into Angel's (or devil's) pool - the memory of a lifetime. I have a healthy fear of falling (I.e. Fear of heights), but the staff was professional and made sure I was safe and comfortable.

We had booked and prepaid our Livingstone Island tour serveral months in advance and reconfirmed a week before the event. Despite all this, we were told the same morning that we could not go as they had overbooked and prioritised a larger group. This is of course unacceptable beviour. We were offered a tour next day as compensation, which is... More

We prebooked our tour of Livingstone island, which I would recommend doing, particularly if you only have a few days in Livingstone. The morning tours are upto 50USD cheaper than afternoon but to be honest, I would pay the full 150 for the morning experience too. Having camped for 20 days before arriving in Livingstone, walking into the royal Livingstone... More

I booked this last minute and was not sure what to expect! Wow! How fun was this! They picked us up in a small boat at our hotel, the Royal Livingstone. A 5 minute cruise to Livingstone Island, which is a small land mass at the top and center of the falls. Upon arrival you are escorted to an area... More

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
