Full description
Get a completely different perspective of Victoria Falls unlike any other when you swim in Devils Pool and tour Livingstone Island. Choose to just take the tour, or upgrade your experience to include a 5-star lunch or high tea. Benefit from convenient hotel pickup and drop-off in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. After pickup at your hotel, make your way in a minibus across the border into Zambia to the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Meet your experienced guides and receive a detailed safety briefing taking you through what to expect on your upcoming adventure step-by-step. Then, go on an exhilarating 5-minute boat ride through the Zambezi River current, twisting and turning as your captain navigates their way through rocky channels toward the column of spray rising from the falls. When you get to the rocky Livingstone Island, the staff will greet you with a traditional energy drink before you are guided to the edge of the waterfall on the eastern side of the island, which overlooks Rainbow Falls and the Horseshoe. You’re then led to the island’s western side that overlooks the Main Falls. Enjoy magnificent views of the main water torrent gushing over the basalt edge of the falls from a perspective completely different from the rainforest paths on the Zimbabwean side of the canyon. When it's sunny, the rainbows are jaw-dropping. Next, head into Devils Pool — but only if you’re comfortable. Once ready in your swimming costume, your guide will lead you while explaining the route. Swim upstream in a slow current with a rope in place for safety, then climb onto a different rocky outcrop near the falls' edge and the Devils Pool. Lie on the rock lip at the pool’s edge and gaze right into the chasm of Victoria Falls, as massive water torrents flow just meters away. If you bring your camera, the guides can take photos and videos of you while you enjoy an adrenaline rush. Upon your return to the island, get treated to a wonderful lunch, high tea, or snacks, depending on the tour option selected. Finally, return on the boat to the Royal Livingstone Hotel to board your transport back across the border and on to your hotel in Victoria Falls town.

    This is a one-of-a-kind life experience, not for the faint of heart. But if you can swim, it is safer than it looks. The guides are very friendly and try hard to make you feel safe.
