Livingstone Island Tour - Picnic at Devils Pool
Livingstone Island near Devils Pool- Picnic on the Edge of Victoria falls - Zambian Side only
Livingstone Island is a 5-8 minutes boat ride from the Royal Livingstone Hotel and is located in the middle of the Zambezi River, touching the lip of the Victoria Falls, where the water thunders down the 103m drop.
Access to this unique Island is seasonal and depends entirely on the water level in the Zambezi River.
All visits to the island are during the 'low water' season, which usually begins in mid July and goes through to the end of January.
High water visits are not possible as the island is continuously covered in the spray/downpour from the Victoria Falls.
The trip includes a short guided tour of the island, viewing the Victoria Falls and a light snack depending on the time of the morning visits.
