From Livingstone: Livingstone Island and Devils Pool Tour

Get a completely different perspective of Victoria Falls unlike any other when you swim in Devils Pool and tour Livingstone Island. Choose to just take the tour, or upgrade your experience to include a 5-star lunch or high tea. Benefit from convenient hotel pickup and drop-off in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. After pickup at your hotel, make your way in a minibus across the border into Zambia to the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Meet your experienced guides and receive a detailed safety briefing taking you through what to expect on your upcoming adventure step-by-step. Then, go on an exhilarating 5-minute boat ride through the Zambezi River current, twisting and turning as your captain navigates their way through rocky channels toward the column of spray rising from the falls. When you get to the rocky Livingstone Island, the staff will greet you with a traditional energy drink before you are guided to the edge of the waterfall on the eastern side of the island, which overlooks Rainbow Falls and the Horseshoe. You’re then led to the island’s western side that overlooks the Main Falls. Enjoy magnificent views of the main water torrent gushing over the basalt edge of the falls from a perspective completely different from the rainforest paths on the Zimbabwean side of the canyon. When it's sunny, the rainbows are jaw-dropping. Next, head into Devils Pool — but only if you’re comfortable. Once ready in your swimming costume, your guide will lead you while explaining the route. Swim upstream in a slow current with a rope in place for safety, then climb onto a different rocky outcrop near the falls' edge and the Devils Pool. Lie on the rock lip at the pool’s edge and gaze right into the chasm of Victoria Falls, as massive water torrents flow just meters away. If you bring your camera, the guides can take photos and videos of you while you enjoy an adrenaline rush. Upon your return to the island, get treated to a wonderful lunch, high tea, or snacks, depending on the tour option selected. Finally, return on the boat to the Royal Livingstone Hotel to board your transport back across the border and on to your hotel in Victoria Falls town.

What people are saying about Livingstone

It was a lovely daytrip. We flew through immigrations on both the Zambian and Botswana side. I was in doubt about whether there would be charges at the boarders which there were not. The game drive was so nice and the driver was the nicest man. He definetly had our best interest at heart and did his best to find as many animals as possible. We saw elefants everywhere and a lot of hippos and crocodiles. The lunch offered was the most delicious buffet! Fruits, vegetables, meats and ice cream ;) All in all a great day, that I would be happy to repeat.

Naprosto nezapomenutelný celoživotní zážitek, kdybych si měla vybrat jedinou aktivitu v celé oblasti, volila bych tuto. Není to ovšem pro každého, ze začátku je třeba zdolat ostrý sestup k řece, na konci kopec opět vyšplhat nahoru. Rovněž samotné pádlování a v případě obrácení raftu i plavání v peřejích by mohlo někomu připadat náročné, nicméně za všechny tyto "úskalí" to na 100% stojí absolvovat. Jednoznačně doporučuji !

Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.

Velmi příjemná a obohacující plavba po Zambezi, výborná atmosféra, spousta informací, skvělé občerstvení. Viděli jsme z poměrně velké blízkosti mnoho zvířat i ptáků, průvodci byli velmi vstřícní.

Úžasný zážitek, skvěle organizovaný i zabezpečený. Jednoznačně doporučuji !
