Full description
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 before your journey back to your hotel.

I went on this tour early in the morning for the Breakfast tour, and I was the only person who signed up for the earliest time! It was like having a private tour and I had such a great time. My guide was amazing and really made sure I got the most out of the experience.

There isn't much more to say other than WOW. Worth every penny. If you are nervous with heights or water this probably isn't for you, but if you're a bit of a dare devil, want to make your family nervous and/or want an amazing picture for Instagram, this is the top top place to be....seriously!
