Please note start times reflect the pickup time from your hotel in Victoria Falls. You will then be transported to the Kingdom Hotel before you depart for Livingstone Island.

Your trip to Livingstone Island starts at the deck of the Royal Livingstone Hotel. From there you will take a short boat ride to Livingstone Island. Once you reach Livingstone Island you will be greeted by the friendly staff. You are then lead to the very edge of the Victoria Falls. This is the spot where David Livingstone first witnessed the Victoria Falls himself.

Once you have viewed the Victoria Falls you have the opportunity to jump into Devils Pool. The swim to Devils Pool is not hard. You do not need to be a strong swimmer. There is a safety rope to assist you along the way. Once you reach the ledge you climb out onto a rocky outcrop close to the edge of the Falls. Devils Pool has a natural rock ledge literally on the edge of the Falls. This creates a barrier where the water is only a few centimeters deep. This barrier allows you to safely jump into the pool without getting swept over the edge of the falls.

Once you are in Devils Pool you can lie on the rock ledge and look out over the Victoria Falls. With the flowing water rushing past just meters away. This is an incredible experience and one you will be talking about forever. Once you have had your fun in Devils Pool the guides will lead you back to Livingstone Island where you will be treated to either breakfast, lunch or snacks depending the the time of day.
