Livingstone Island Breezer

Livingstone And Vic Falls

Activity Description

Livingstone Island Breezer
(Devil’s Pool and Angel’s Pool if available)

Your tour begins by departing by boat for Livingstone Island from the Livingstone island Launch Site (which sits between the Royal Livingstone Hotel and Livingstone Town). On the island, our guides will let you in on the incredible history of the island as you follow the footsteps of Dr. David Livingstone all the way to the edge of the waterfall.

Those who wish (and are able) can even take a dip in Devil’s Pool or Angel’s Pool, and everybody completes the experience with a 5-star gourmet meal prepared for you on the island itself.

Did you know… guided tours to Livingstone Island have a 100% safety record. It is illegal to visit the Island with a private guide or on your own.

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

NOTE: DEVIL’S POOL AND ANGEL’S POOL ARE ONLY AVAILABLE WHEN THE ZAMBEZI IS LOW. Safety is our first priority and therefore Tongabezi reserves the right to refuse the swimming activities without prior notice to weak swimmers or if the water levels seem too high. Children must be 12 and above to swim.

Unless you are visiting between mid-August and late December, be sure to check the river levels with our team in advance so as to avoid disappointment.

Customer Reviews

The experience was really nice, with motivated staff. For the amount paid, it would be better to do the island visit less rushed. It feels here was no time for anything. It would be great to make the activity longer, so that people can actually stay on the island a bit longer. The food served was very tasty. - Sankapu

We had an amazing time on the livingstone breezer. It is a must do activity and significantly better than any of the cruises offered by hotels. The staff on board were phenomenal, the food was delicious and the ability for the boat to get close to the animals for great photos is unmatched. relax and have a drink on board the livingstone breezer with an elephant in the background. - Ingold x 4

What an amazing experience! This was one of the highlights of our trip. It was very well organized, the guides were highly skilled in each of their roles and put everyone right at ease - even my husband who doesn't swim well! The pictures and videos that were taken with our camera are absolutely incredible! They really capture the whole experience of being on the edge of the Falls! It's great to have pictures of ourselves in the pool because you are so caught up in the moment that you don't have that other perspective. The breakfast was also incredible, especially given that's it's all cooked on the premises. It was nice to share our experiences and impressions with other groups. We will totally recommend Tongabezie to anyone travelling to Victoria Falls! - Keren x 4

It was a wonderful experience to be in Devil's pool, to feel the power of the waterfalls and to enjoy the majestic view. I would recommend it to my friends. - Sam
