Livingstone (Zambia): Livingstone Island reopened for visits
Now that it is low water season at the Victoria Falls, the water level of the Zambezi river dropped to a certain point so that the famous Livingstone Island on the Zambian side of the river has today been reopened for visits. Livingstone Island is a 5-8 min boat ride from the Royal Livingstone Hotel and is located in the middle of the Zambezi River, touching the lip of the Victoria Falls. Adjacent to Livingstone Island is the famous Devil's Pool, a natural rock pool right on the edge of the Victoria Falls. During low water season, Devil's Pool is shallow enough that people can safely swim right to the edge before the waterfall drops more than 100m. Kudos WildWeb100 for the video footage.
