This awe-inspiring island is perched on the edge of a cavernous gorge, eye to eye with the roaring cloud of mist, “Mosi-Oa-Tunya” (The Smoke That Thunders). Its neighbour is the raging wave of the Zambezi that plunges down the black basalt rock. 

Guarded by tall teak trees that hum with birdlife, it is often visited by pods of grazing hippo and herds of elephant. It has seen the sky when it is brewing with angry storm clouds, and when it is such a brilliant blue that the colour seems to seep into the river below. Every morning the island greets the sun as it rises over the rainforest, and bids it farewell when it sinks below the horizon, leaving a golden glow in its wake.


Minimum 2 pax – Maximum 24 pax
Approximately 1.5 hours long
No children under 12 years. Children from 8 years to 11 years can visit the island, but WILL NOT be allowed to swim, however the full price applies.
The island is open during the low water season. //  Devil’s Pool and Angel’s Pool are dependent on water levels. //  It is advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment as the island is very popular and has a maximum capacity of 24 pax at any one time.
