Devil’s Pool

$110.00

Livingstone Island is where Dr David Livingstone first saw the Victoria Falls. Explore the island and experience dramatic views of the Falls, before plunging into Devil’s Pool, a natural rock pool on the edge of the Victoria Falls.

Description

Visit Livingstone Island in Livingstone, Zambia (also known as Devils Pool) and stand where the Scottish explorer David Livingstone first viewed the Victoria Falls. On a Livingstone Island tour you can swim to the edge of the magnificent Victoria Falls and plunge into Devils Pool which is a natural rock pool on a ledge right at the edge of Victoria Falls.

Your trip to Livingstone Island starts on the banks of the Zambezi River in Livingstone, Zambia – 1,3 km upstream of the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Here you will meet your guides and be given an introduction of what to expect and a safety talk. From there you will take a short boat ride to Livingstone Island. The captain will navigate the rocky channels as you cruise within a close distance of the Victoria Falls. This is a great experience in itself.

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 where David Livingstone first witnessed the Falls himself. You get to experience magnificent views of the Victoria Falls from a completely different perspective than the views from the rainforest. If it is a sunny day the rainbows are incredible.

Once you have viewed the Victoria Falls you have the opportunity to jump into Devils Pool. The guides will explain the route before giving you a safety briefing. Although there is a safety rope to assist you along the way, you should be a confident swimmer. Once you reach the ledge you climb onto a rocky outcrop close to the edge of the Falls. Devils Pool is a deep natural pool that has been created by thousands of years of erosion. 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.
