Located in the middle of the Zambezi River, touching the lip of the Victoria Falls, where the water thunders down the 103m drop.Livingstone Island was opened in 1995 to provide exclusive and unique picnics on the edge of the Victoria Falls.


It caters for Lodges and Hotels around the Victoria Falls area both on the Zambian and the Zimbabwean sides.Livingstone Island, (picture right) being part of the Victoria Falls, makes it a very unique picnic spot.


Access to this unique Island is seasonal and depends entirely on the water level in the Zambezi River.

You can get there by boat (two engines, just in case).


Island safaris (Seasonal approx July - Dec) dependant on water levels


Due to the unique nature of the Island only 16 guests may visit and enjoy a choice of five island safaris, restricting this exclusive island to only 60 visitors per day. For those who can afford this product, highly recommend advanced reservations.
