What we'll do

Your tour begins by departing by boat for Livingstone Island from the Livingstone island Launch Site (which sits between the Royal Livingstone Hotel and Livingstone Town). On the island, our guides will let you in on the incredible history of the island as you follow the footsteps of Dr. David Livingstone all the way to the edge of the waterfall. Those who wish (and are able) can even take a dip in Devil’s Pool or Angel’s Pool, and everybody completes the experience with a 5-star gourmet meal prepared for you on the island itself. Did you know… guided tours to Livingstone Island have a 100% safety record. It is illegal to visit the Island with a private guide or on your own. Devil’s Pool is open during the drier months of the year, usually between mid-August and late December, when the Zambezi water levels are low enough for swimmers to take the plunge. NOTE: DEVIL’S POOL AND ANGEL’S POOL ARE ONLY AVAILABLE WHEN THE ZAMBEZI IS LOW. Safety is our first priority and therefore Owen's tours and safaris reserves the right to refuse the swimming activities without prior notice to weak swimmers or if the water levels seem too high. Children must be 12 and above to swim. Unless you are visiting between mid-August and late December, be sure to check the river levels with our team in advance so as to avoid disappointment.
