An excursion to Cataract Island Pools overlooking the abyss of the New Falls is a truly unrivalled experience that grants visitors the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in the awe-inspiring wonder of the famous Victoria Falls.

Whether you are looking for exhilarating thrills, or simply breathtaking scenery up close (and rare photographic opportunities), don’t miss out on a trip to Cataract Island Pools during your visit to Victoria Falls. The Excursion is a guided tour to Cataract Island, one of the islands located along the precipice of the 1.7 km long sheet of falling water that is the Victoria Falls.

Depending on the guided tour option that you selected, you will either enjoy a breakfast, picnic lunch or high tea at Baines restaurant after the activity while marveling at the natural beauty surrounding you in all directions.
