Arguably the best place to witness the immense mass of water going over the Victoria Falls is tiny Livingstone Island, the place where Dr David Livingstone first glimpsed Mosi-oa-Tunya. Tongabezi offers five trips a day to Livingstone Island. A twin-engine boat that carries up to 16 people will take you through the fast-moving channels of the Zambezi, a thrilling journey.
Once 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. Then you have a chance to jump into Devil’s Pool, a natural feature right on the edge of the Falls accessible for only a few months a year. The view from the edge is totally exhilarating as you feel the force of the Zambezi flowing past you and crashing down over the precipice; a hundred meter drop. You will be returned to Chundukwa River Lodge for overnight.
