Highlights
    What to Expect
    Relax as you are taken by minibus across the border into Zambia to the Royal Livingstone Hotel for a detailed safety briefing before a 5 minute boat ride to Livingstone Island. Your guide will navigate through the Zambezi River current heading towards the column of spray rising from the Falls.

    Once you get to rocky Livingstone Island, the staff will welcome you with a traditional African energy drink.  Your guide will take you first to the eastern side of the island to view Rainbow Falls and the Horseshoe. Discover the island’s western side to see the Main Falls, where you’ll enjoy the magnificent torrent of water cascading over the basalt edge of the falls. This unique view of Victoria Falls offers a perspective completely different from that of the Zimbabwean side of the canyon. As the morning sun hits the mist rising from the falls, expect to see stunning rainbows.

    Have the chance to swim in the Devil's Pool, a once in a lifetime experience. Your guide will lead as you swim upstream in a slow current. Sit at the edge of the fall’s and Devils Pool, gazing at Victoria Falls, as immense water torrents flow just feet away. When you return to Livingstone Island, fill up on a traditional bush breakfast, lunch or high tea depending on your tour time, before your journey back to your hotel.

    This was an amazing experience. From the speed boat ride to the Island, the swim and wade across the river, the climing over the rocks to the finale of the devil's pool. The experience will be a highlight.
