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)

This was the highlight of Vic Falls, the Zambian guides are excellent & it is quite a thrilling experience, right next to the falls, stunning views, not for the faint hearted. The high tea was very nice.

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...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.

Yep! Not sure if there is a best time. We did "high tea" - late afternoon, which was excellent, as well as the high tea. I think it depends on how much spray you want to see and the angle of the sun, followed by cost. We did... More
