LIVINGSTONE ISLAND TOUR - VICTORIA FALLS DAY ACTIVITY TOURS
Dr. David Livingstone was paddled in a dug out canoe through swift rapids towards the roar and rising cloud of mist suspended above a cliff over which the whole of the mile wide Zambezi River plunged. The 'Mukolo' (canoe) paddlers skillfully landed him on 'Goat Island' (now known as Livingstone Island) right on the lip of the chasm. A few steps through the small rainforest and on 16 November 1855, he gazed upon one of the most spectacular sights in the world 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' (the smoke that thunders) which he named in honor of his Queen as The Victoria Falls.
Livingstone Island Tour At The Victoria Falls
Today visitors are picked up in a twin engine boat with powerful motors and a skilled skipper retraces Livingstone's approach to the island to witness the very best view of the Falls that there is. All visits to the island are during the 'low water' season which usually begins in mid July and goes through to the end of January. High water visits are not possible due to the dangerous currents and as the island is continuously covered in the spray/downpour from the Falls. Pick up is from the jetty adjacent to the Royal Livingstone River Deck by an aluminum 12 seater launch with twin water jet propelled engines which then transfers guests on a 5 minute ride to the island. Drop off is again at the Royal Livingstone pier one hour later. The trip includes a short guided tour of the island, viewing the Victoria Falls and a light snack depending on the time of the visit.

What are our Customers saying about our safari holidays?
On behalf of myself, my wife and my two adult daughters, I want to sincerely thank you and AfricanMecca Safaris for our fabulous recent safari. Everything you promised exceeded our expectations and was superb, which is saying a lot since this was our second trip, having had a wonderful Botswana Safari 10 years ago. Do not ever hesitate to use me as a reference.

Chobe was delightful, less than half full. Sussi and Chuma, very nice, again only 13 people in all. All the game drives and river cruises were excellent. We had great weather. The ability to get really close is in inspiring. EVERYWHERE we went, the people were warm, helpful and charming. Thank you so much. We will be recommending your services to all.

Raza Visram at AfricanMecca planned the most amazing trip for my friend and I. I wanted to go to 4 countries in 15 days and he made it happen. It was an aggressive itinerary and Raza planned it so well, that the transitions were seamless. The last leg of the trip was Botswana for another Safari and we stayed at the most beautiful lodge. The excitement in seeing the animals so closely is indescribable.
