There is very little information about this attraction, and it has been listed as an internet hoax, but it is a genuine attraction and it is accessible through the company 'Tongabezi' at the Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia.

Due to the season, I went into Angel's Pool, which is similar but more straightforward than the Devil's Pool tour. My small group took a very short boat ride to an island and were immediately led on a brief hike (barefoot in swimming gear) over...More

Worth every penny for this experience! A quick boat ride from the Royal Livingstone Hotel to Livingston Island for the Devil's Pools. Do not be scared, it is not scary at all. The guides do rush through the whole experience, but it is understandable due...More

Seriously, if you are near the falls, book this trip! Words can't do justice to what it feels like to be sat on the edge of a huge waterfall watching the water cascade down around you, simply breathtaking!

One of the scariest yet best experiences of my life! An absolute must! Don’t let people tell you about it - go and find our for yourself! Only open between Aug and mid Jan due to the water levels. So much fun!!

A must do if in Vic Falls. You do not have to enter the pool if you're not feeling up to it either. The walk around is also spectacular. Food and drink must appreciated too!

Another big tick on my bucket list. Despite signing at least 2 waivers of liability and being more than a little nervous we headed off to Livingston Island. Everything about the experience is memorable from walking through The Livingston Hotel, the boat ride to the...More

I agree wholeheartedly with the Japanese reviewer below. It is an exciting experience for about 5 minutes. HOWEVER, staff are rude and don't care - this is purely a numbers game for them so it is in, take photos, out, see you later. There is...More

I paid in advance and had no issues. They also provided optional instructions to wire money from my bank, but I just used my credit card.
