Livingstone Island Devils Pool Overview

Please note that Livingstone Island is usually closed from the end of March until approximately the beginning August due to high water levels. This varies from season to season.

When the Zambezi River is in full flood, 10 million litres of water rush over the lip of Victoria Falls every minute, falling 108 metres into the roaring chasm below. Livingstone Island sits in the heart of the falls, on the brink of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Livingstone island is a short boat ride from the Livingstone Island Launch site on the mainland.

On arrival at Livingstone Island you are met by the staff with a traditional brew, and then a short tour to the East of the Island overlooking the Falls, with great views of the Horseshoe and Rainbow Falls. Morning trips often are greeted with spectacular rainbows with the sun shining through the mist.

Those who are brave enough can swim in Devil’s Pool – although this is dependent on water levels. From the Island you take a gentle upstream swim in a gentle current, with a safety rope attached (just in case) to rocky outcrop just above the pool, from where you can jump into the pool, for what has to be one of the most adrenalin pumping experience.

The Livingstone Island Tour concludes with a freshly prepared gourmet meal, breakfast, lunch or high tea, depending on the time of day. After this you will be taken by boat back to the launch site.

Due to the nature of Livingstone Island, the number of clients who may visit at one time is restricted to 24. In order to protect and preserve the natural habitat of the area, there are only 5 daily visits allowed to the island.
