- Stand in the footsteps of David Livingstone
- Swim in one of the world’s most spectacular Infinity Pools
- Feel the raw power of the Zambezi crashing over the falls
In 1855 the explorer and missionary David Livingstone discovered Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), recognised as the world’s largest waterfall, at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. He named the waterfall for his queen, and Victoria Falls is now considered one of the foremost natural wonders in the world - twice the height of Niagara Falls, and home to a stunning variety of wildlife. Livingstone Island, a small landmass just upriver, is one of the best vantage points to admire the sheer power of Victoria Falls.
On this awesome Zambia experience, take your place on a small twin-engined boat that will carve up the Zambezi to the island, where you’ll be given a fascinating guided tour of a World Heritage Site, the location where Livingstone first saw the falls. Learn about the area’s history as a place of sacrifice, and admire the sensational views. Depending on the water level in the river, you may also be able to take a memorable dip in the Devil’s Pool, right on the very lip of the falls, and reckoned to be one of the world’s most jaw-dropping and dangerous Infinity Pools.
