Absolutely must visit. We took the morning slot from 0730 to 0930. Breakfast that was prepared by the island Chef was delicious. View was magnificent. The guides are awesome and they are your safety jacket, so remember to listen to them.

If you plan to go to Victoria Falls i highly recommend going to Livingstone Island and experience swimming in the Zambezi river and then getting to Devil’s Pool. Great experience!!

Keep your feet down and don't go over the falls! (especially with the little fish that nibble on your feet). This is a once in lifetime experience...don't let fear make you miss out.
