Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls

Take a dip in Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls. When the river flows low, you can sit on the Zambian side just a few feet away from the edge of the world’s largest waterfall. A rock barrier emerges, usually from September to December, and visitors can lounge in a rock pool. Carefully. A few people have slipped over the barrier and plunged down the cascading falls to the bottom. It takes a rocky walk and swim in the Zambezi to reach the pool. Fearless ones leap into the pool and get pushed to the edge by the force of the river. The rock lip brings them to a halt. There are guides in attendance to make sure you don’t go over the edge, according to Zambia Tourism.
