We booked a tour to Livingstone Island to swim in the Devils Pool since we were visiting the falls during dry season. The whole experience was incredible! We ended up booking the high tea time slot and while it was a bit more expensive, the...More
We did this excursion, with Shearwater, from our B&B in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. They organised the Zim side pick up, transfer to the border and a pick up on the other side to the Royal Livingstone hotel. You (UK) do need a visa to get...More
This was an interesting tour. My husband and I did not swim as Devils Pool was to high. You get a walking tour and get extremely close to the falls on the Zambia’s side. Be sure to wear shorts as you get very muddy and...More
This trip is not for the faint hearted but if you can, do it. It involves a short( fast) boat ride to Livingstone island. A safety briefing; a wade and short swim ( in line and following a guide) towards the pool; a scramble over...More
Very cool visit to angels pool! Bathing on the edge and seeing everything, just right there is amazing. Even the boat ride there was so much fun!
The experience was great!
However, the company and communication was quite poor. The pickup spot had been changed,...More
We took this trip from the Royal Livingstone Hotel on the banks of the Zambezi and nothing can prepare you for the sheer thrill and excitement of the swim in the pool that is just 1.5 meters from the edge of the waterfall! We went...More
The trip is expensive but we thought well worth it. To see the Falls from above is quite phenomenal. I did not swim in the Angels Pool but watched my daughter do so with my heart in my mouth. The guides took fantastic photos and...More
Can only agree with some other reviews here. The staff and the organisation of the whole tour was the worst ever. Our guide was super unfriendly and impatient. So it turned out to be more a rushed tour than anything else. It seemed to me...More

Not at all! You can actually only walk to Livingstone Island at very specific times of the year, and only with official Tongabezi guides, because it's right in the middle of the waterfall. It's far more likely that you would be driven from Tongabezi Lodge to the Royal Livingstone Hotel where a boat would pick you up and take you to Livingstone Island. If you are there at the right time of year you could then swim in the Devil's Pool. I hope this helps.

Hi! The tour is called “Livingstone Island Tour.” The price varies depending upon what time of day your tour is. Can’t remember exactly what I paid. There is only one tour as it’s owned by the hotel, so it doesn’t really matter who you by the tour from. The tour website only talks about Devils Pool, but it will be Angels Pool if you go in July.

Hi! My husband and I went to Angel's Pool in early July of 2016. I wouldn't know the exact temperature... but I had no issues :) though I was excited and wasn't going to let it stop me haha, I recall my husband grimacing and taking his time getting in so it was at least somewhat cold, but he's a bit sensitive to cold water in my opinion. The tour guides loan you these great, huge, warm panchos though so I encourage you to not let cold water stop you if possible, that was the coolest part of the trip for us!! But also, be warned that it may not be accessible at that time. It depends on the water levels, they don't allow folks to go to Angel's Pool if the water level is still too high for safety. We were told we might not be able to visit it in early July, but it ended up working out for us. You can email the tour operator as the date approaches for updates.
