    You can only go to Devil's pool when the river is low. Unfortunately, the great Zambezi was roaring when we visited last month. It is the end of their Fall & beginning of their Winter.. Dangling in a pool of water right before the Falls would be right up my alley!. But if you want to experience it, make sure you check that the time of year that you are going would accommodate that. Also, if the river is low, experiencing Victoria Falls is not necessarily the best time to see the Falls in all their glory.

    Incredible sight - whether from the National Park, above from a helicopter or microlight or looking down from Livingstone Island - just stunning

    This park is conveniently located close to Livingstone for a quick animal drive. We toured in the morning and saw a plethora of animals. The elephants were just coming back from the wet season so it was special to see a family of three.

    A very special experience, going down from Livingstone to the bridge in old luxury railway wagons from the colonial era, pulled by a steam locomotive. Service was exqusite throughout, and even included pickup/drop-off at our hotel. Unfortunately the invited guest speaker fell ill during his talk and had to be hastily escorted off the train. The view from the bridge was stunning as ever. Treat the ever-present hawkers with a modicum of respect and they’ll leave you alone.

    Where this activity disappointed was the food, considering the price of admission. The soup for starter was nice, but the chicken for main course and the dessert were quite bland. Still, all taken together an evening I wouldn’t want to be without.

    Good information about the history of Livingstone, and the area. I was especially impressed with the room about David Livingstone and his contributions.
    It is a bit deceiving because we spent about 1.5 hours at this museum and could have easily spent more.
    It is not air conditioned, but was very comfortable on a 90 degree day.
    The museum is well labeled and defined, so no need for a tour.
    It was priced well.

    My daughter and granddaughter (17) and I (I'm 71) all did the gorge swing. It was a spectacular and thrilling experience.

    We took are small children to the farm, and they enjoyed watching the crocs. My son was allowed to hold a local tortoise for some pictures. At first he wasn't having it but he got used to it and really enjoyed it.

    Words truly cannot describe the day of exhilaration and fun I have had. Many thanks to Mulele and all who took care of me today! I did the unlimited adrenaline package with free helicopter ride (included gorge swing, abseiling, and zip lining in two different positions). The gorge swing was definitely the highlight, so much so that I did it 3 times! The one limiting factor for the swing and abseiling, is the hike back up afterwards, but the reward was well worth it. I felt entirely safe the whole time. We crossed into Zimbabwe for the helicopter ride and were able to see the whole falls, including the rainbow (which shows when the sun is shining). Mulele made the whole process of crossing customs and moving from one activity to the next extremely smooth.

    We were lucky to be guided through Wayi Wayi by Yande, daughter of the founders of the gallery and a talented and versatile artist herself. She gave us quite a lot of her time to show her projects and her art, as well as that of her family and fellow artists. Her explanations on the various traditions that inspired the artworks as well as the flurry of techniques used were very interesting! If you like art, go have a look! :)

    We wanted to go the specifically to see the Jewish museum . It is a small but well worth while museum to visit. There is information about the history of the early Jewish settlers to the town and the contribution that they made. There is information about general Jewish history, customs and holocaust.
    The railway museum has original trains which was interesting to see.
    It is quite far from the town and you will need a taxi

    A lot of steam trains from early 1900s and a small Jewish museum which documents the Jewish families that lived here.
    A nice hour spent here.

    The building not so visible but the gallery was really nice with good paintings. We were guided perfectly by one of the staff members. He was explaining a lot and with very good information. There were some artworks outside as well.
    There was an exhibition about understanding cultures, which motivates you to look beyond what is on the surface.

    We really enjoyed it and recommend everyone to go there.

    We had an incredible experience visiting the Zambezi Elephant Trails. Taking an hour ride on Marula with a trainer was so much fun. The elephants are friendly, calm, interesting animals. The group consists of orphaned elephants and a couple of youngsters who were born at the camp. Marula wanted to stay walking in the water and took convincing to return to the rest of the group. Feeding the elephants afterward just added more fun to the experience. They told of one of the elephants who actually ran away for about 10 months. They were unable to find him when searching. But 10 months later the giant returned and has stayed ever since. Loved it!

    Getting in a small boat, with fabo cocktails spotting hippos and crocs was amazing. Seeing the sunset on the River was a memory I won't forget.
