Livingstone Island Tour - Picnic at Devils Pool

Livingstone Island near Devils Pool- Picnic on the Edge of Victoria falls - Zambian Side only

livingstone island

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.

Maximum capacity : 16

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.

Devils Pool - Swimming on the Lip of Disaster

The Devil's Pool at the falls' brink - a small lagoon
enclosed by rocks where, in the dry season,some people swim and even climb up on the very lip of the Devils Arm Chair
