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.

This is one of the things you have to do if given the chance. Definitely one of the highlights of my stay in Zambia.

It's such a cool experience. Go from the Zambia side if you can and you can walk along the top of the falls before you arrive.

Your going get soaked...just live with it and bring a Kagool as the rental ones are not cleaned very often and then must be worn by a hundred sweating tourists a day at least.

Lovely walk 15 mins down 30 mins back. Steep, uneven but worth it if you have time. Enjoyed watching the baboons. Don`t go near, very vicious.

Livingstone falls was on our bucket list for many years. Glad we finally ticked it off. It was an amazing wonderful experience. we went during the rainy season so the water was too much. We didn't get to a good view of the falls as...More

This is a crazy thing to do, but...don't miss it. Was a bit hesitant about doing this, but one of the highlights and total adrenalin rush of our trip. They took us with a speed boat to Livingstone Island from the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Great...More

Such an amazing experience! You definitely want to go first thing in the morning so you get to experience the beautiful rainbow the mist creates.

Hi there I will be going to the devils pool in October. Is there any better time of the day to have rainbows or is that just complete luck? Thanks :)

There is always a rainbow when looking towards Zimbabwe side from Devil's Pool, like the pictures you search on google. I think anytime in day time is good. Not sure in the evening.

Does this seem feasible: Arriving in Zambia by plane at 12h30, taking the 3h30 tour to Devils pool, and after the tour going to Zimbabwe for our overnight accommodations? If so, we will need a place to store our luggage for the duration of the tour, any ideas where it would be safe and convenient to do so? We have enquired at the Royal Livingstone hotel since that's where the tour starts but we're still waiting for an answer. Would we also be able to leave our bags at the airport during the tour? Thank you!

Call the Tongabezi hotel, they operate Livingstone Island and the Devil's Pool. They are great people and will give you all the information you need. They could probably arrange transportation for you and if so you could... More

No the devils pool is on the Zambian side and operates out of the royal Livingston hotel. You do not have to be a guest to go to the deviled pool. The Victoria falls walking tour is on the Zimbabwe side and is well worth it... More
