Relax as you are taken by minibus across the border into Zambia to the Royal Livingstone Hotel for a detailed safety briefing before a 5 minute boat ride to Livingstone Island. Your guide will navigate through the Zambezi River current heading towards the column of spray rising from the Falls.

Once you get to rocky Livingstone Island, the staff will welcome you with a traditional African energy drink.  Your guide will take you first to the eastern side of the island to view Rainbow Falls and the Horseshoe. Discover the island’s western side to see the Main Falls, where you’ll enjoy the magnificent torrent of water cascading over the basalt edge of the falls. This unique view of Victoria Falls offers a perspective completely different from that of the Zimbabwean side of the canyon. As the morning sun hits the mist rising from the falls, expect to see stunning rainbows.

Have the chance to swim in the Devil's Pool, a once in a lifetime experience. Your guide will lead as you swim upstream in a slow current. Sit at the edge of the fall’s and Devils Pool, gazing at Victoria Falls, as immense water torrents flow just feet away. When you return to Livingstone Island, fill up on a traditional bush breakfast, lunch or high tea depending on your tour time, before your journey back to your hotel.

These guys did a great job all around. This is one of the best things to do on the Zambia side. I recommend doing the early bookings with the breakfast. The breakfast was quite good and healthy. There were a few different option. Don' waste your time with the higher priced bookings. This one is at the right price.

There was a little confusion on the hotel pickup and thought the 40 for the short ride was a little much, and we booked it for the 9AM then was told that it was booked for a private party so we had to wait until the next group, but the tour was great the crew was very friendly and they took over 200 pictures in various places in the waterfall for us, the falls were flowing to heavily to go to the devils pool which I figured would be the case so we did the angles pool instead, also the breakfast afterwards was very nice.

This was wonderful! The only reason I give it a 4 is that we felt rushed at the end with our breakfast. It would be nice if the y allowed about 15 mins more between groups. The guides were awesome, they took our cameras and did photos of us in the pool, helped people across the river as needed. We were to be in the morning group and they tried to make us wait 2 hours for the next group, I spoke up and they did end up letting us go after showing my ticket. They gave us all a good amount of time in the pool posing. No complaints, a wonderful morning and memories we will never forget.

We had booked a 9:00 am tour, but the local operator put us in a 10:30 am tour which caused transport issues for the rest of the day. We lost time and had to cancel our afternoon experiences as this one backed us up. Not acceptable!!!
