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 I expected to be the highlight of my holiday at Livingstone in the end felt almost like a scam. After paying an expensive 140USD per-person fee, we were taken to the island on a boat and greeted coldly by a guide who immediately started...More

We loved our tour of Livingstone Island. We visited in the beginning of the dry season, so Angel's Pool was open. I haven't been to Devil's Pool to be able to compare, but I thought Angel's Pool was thrilling and plenty close to the edge....More

This was a real highlight of my visit. The roaring sound of the waters, and incredible views looking down upon the falls, were so exhilarating! I am so glad I included this side trip. The falls were very full this time of the year.

Am surprised by the high ratings of this experience. True you get to the edge of the falls but many other great views of the falls and much less hazardous. You go in a swimming costume , squelch through mud in a cold spay, hold...More

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
