The best vantage point from which to witness Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya is Livingstone Island. David Livingstone, believed to have been the first European to discover the Falls, first glimpsed the spectacular natural wonder after being canoed across to this very Island.
Our properties, Tongabezi Lodge and Sindabezi Island Camp, offer trips to Livingstone Island daily. Your journey begins with an exciting boat ride through the fast-moving channels of the Zambezi River. Take a leap into Devil’s Pool or Angel’s Pool for an added thrill or watch a rainbow – or ‘moonbow’ – stretch across the open gorge.
During your Livingstone Island tour, your guide will take you through its history from ancient times when it served as a sacrificial site to its present-day World Heritage Site status. A delectable 5-star gourmet meal is prepared for you on the island itself to round off this magical experience.

Here are infinity pools like no other! Swimming in either pool gives you the chance to peer over the brim of the largest curtain of falling water in the world. What is less well known is how effortless this life-changing adventure is.
Just a short swim from Livingstone Island, Devil’s Pool and Angel’s Pool are exhilarating and completely safe. Guided tours to Livingstone Island have a 100% safety record and our guides will be with you at all times to offer a hand, share fun facts, or simply take photographic evidence to bring home to the family.
Devil's Pool is open during the drier months of the year, usually between mid-August and mid-January. Angel’s Pool opens just before the water levels get too high, from about mid-March to mid-June.Visit Site
A lunar rainbow or moonbow happens when the moon shines bright enough to have its light reflected by raindrops, just as is the case for the sun.
Moonlight is much fainter of course, so the lunar rainbow is not nearly as intense as one created by sunlight. It is still an ethereal sight worth seeing, which you can do over the three days of full moon during high water levels at Victoria Falls.
Months that are famous for the best moonbows are April, May, June, July and August.
