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.


Here’s an infinity pool like no other! One of the most astounding natural pools to be found anywhere, Devil’s Pool has a reputation for attracting thrill-seekers from the far corners of the earth.

It offers daring swimmers the chance to experience the ultimate delight: peering over the brim of the largest curtain of falling water in the world. What is less well known is how effortless this life-changing adventure is.

Just a short swim from Livingstone Island, Devil’s Pool is thrilling but completely safe. Guided tours to Livingstone Island have a 100% safety record and our guides will be with you at all times to offer a hand, share fun facts, or simply take photographic evidence to bring home to the family.

Devil’s Pool is open during the drier months of the year, usually between mid August and mid January, when the Zambezi water levels are low enough for swimmers to take the plunge.


  • ANGELS POOL: Angel's Pool 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.
