Overview
Experience Devil’s Pool on the Zambian-side of Victoria Falls during this walking tour that also explores Livingstone Island. You’ll walk along the edge of the falls, look east and west across the Zambezi River from Livingstone Island, and then swim to the edge of Devil’s Pool to see Victoria Falls at its most awe-inspiring. Group size is capped at eight people for a more personalized experience.
Highlights
  • Victoria Falls walking tour on the Zambian side
  • See the falls on foot for a more intimate experience
  • Admire views of both sides of Victoria Falls from Livingstone Island
  • Swim in Devil’s Pool at the edge of the waterfall
What to Expect
Meet a guide on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls, where you’ll pay park entrance fees and set out on foot to the edge of the waterfall, following a relatively easy trail. When you reach Livingstone Island, cross to the eastern side for views of Rainbow Falls and Horseshoe Falls and then see the main waterfall from the island’s western edge. From this angle, it’s common to see rainbows in the rising mist, and it’s a completely different experience than viewing Victoria Falls from Zimbabwe. The next stop is Devil’s Pool, where you’ll have the option to swim upstream in the slow current, sitting at the very edge of Victoria Falls, a short distance from the powerful main channel. The trip concludes at the original departure point.

The Devil's Pool is a naturally formed/carved small basin with an fairly calm eddy of water right in between all the rushing waterfalls at Victoria Falls. It is an adrenaline rush to lay across the rock shelf at the edge and look straight down the falls. PLUS: Really exciting;

Actually experience of Devils Pool was just awesome! You should try it if you are visiting in dry season. But just NOT from this company. My rating for this is ... you only have to pay this experience at US$75, NOT $160. I stayed at Sherwater Villege which was close to the city

Hello, thank you for the time taken to post your review and we’re sorry you feel ripped off. Firstly the $75 covers access to the pool. As this is a natural pool that takes a very small amount of people you’ll most likely find that you cannot get a booking to this activity. We have guaranteed spots available that we’re able to sell that ensure you get to experience this magical activity. We feel that for these reasons we offer an excellent value package which the majority of our customers love, as seen by the reviews. May you indicate the full cover insurance on the vehicles and well experienced guides with detailed information of the activity to ensure their safety, no bridge fees to be charged to clients as it will be included. Failure to get to the activity while you are with our guide for the reason of visa or immigration delays you are guaranteed to get another slot or get 100% refund depending with what you chose which you can’t do when we don’t pick you there is no refund. Constant communication is done between the driver and the office to ensure smooth movement and conduction of activity as we take responsibility of the client from pick up point Kind regards Tamuka Travel

The tour company did a great job of communicating and was on time for pick up to start the tour. We hustled out to beat the other groups and ensure we each had time to enjoy the swim and get plenty of photos! My favorite part was laying on my stomach and peering over the edge
