Livingstone Island Visit
Victoria Falls, Zambia
Livingstone Island Visit Victoria Falls
US$ 105.00 pp*
Livingstone Island was opened in 1992 to provide exclusive and unique picnics on the edge of the Victoria Falls.
If you’re looking to flirt with the wild side, swimming in one of world’s most fascinating natural pools of water, Devil’s Pool, can be experienced during your guided tour of Livingstone Island.
This isn’t your ordinary swim in an infinity pool, but a daring dip on the very edge of the Victoria Falls. Brave swimmers will get to experience the ultimate thrill of peering over the brim of the largest curtain of falling water.
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.
Due to the unique nature of the Island only 16 guests may visit at any one time and enjoy a choice of five daily visits, restricting this exclusive island to only 80 visitors per day.
WE HAVE TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE NATURAL HABITAT OF THE AREA.
Victoria Falls is one of the world’s natural wonders and among the most spectacular sights in all of Africa. The best vantage point from where to witness this immense mass of water is Livingstone Island, the place where Dr David Livingstone first glimpsed Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke That Thunders).
Tongabezi offers five trips a day to Livingstone Island. A boat that carries up to 16 people will take you through the fast-moving channels of the Zambezi, a thrilling journey.
Duration 2 hours 30 minutes
When Devil’s Pool is open during the drier months of the year, usually between mid August and mid January, when the Zambezi water levels are low enough for swimmers to take the plunge.
