Livingstone Island Tours

European explorer David Livingstone first spotted Victoria Falls from an island in the middle of the Zambezi River, just above the thundering falls. You can visit this island on a guided tour (safety concerns prohibit visitors from going on their own) and get a unique view of the falls while learning more about the area’s history. Some tours include the chance to swim at the rim of the waterfall in the famous Devil’s Pool.
