Livingstone Island

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s natural wonders and among the most spectacular sights in all of Africa, and the best vantage point from which to witness it is Livingstone Island.

David Livingstone first glimpsed the Mosi-oa-Tunya (Smoke that Thunders) after being canoed across to this very island. Tongabezi offers five trips a day to Livingstone Island. A twin-engine boat will take you on a thrilling journey through the fast-moving channels of the Zambezi.

On the island you will be given a guided tour, learning about its history from ancient times when it served as a sacrificial site to the present day and its World Heritage status.


The island watches water become one of the worlds wonders as the Zambezi tips its contents between the earth’s lips.

Livingstone realised that a sight so spectacular should be honoured with the name of a Queen. When you sit on Livingstone Island surrounded by pristine natural beauty, you will meet the Queen of Africa- the Victoria Falls.

ANGELS POOL: This is the alternative option when the water is too high for the tour operator to use Devil’s Pool.

Just as daring and exciting as Devil’s Pool this activity will get you up close and personal with the mighty Victoria Falls.

Definitely a must for adrenaline seekers, and those who need new profile pictures for their social media accounts. This is something you will want to boast about

DEVILS POOL: Devil’s Pool is the ultimate infinity pool, adjacent to the famous Livingstone Island situated on the edge of the Victoria Falls.

Guests can choose to enjoy an exhilarating swim to the edge of the falls during their Livingstone Island visit. The Devil’s Pool is usually open between mid August and mid January – depending on the Zambezi
water levels.
