Victoria Falls also called Mosi-oa-Tunya is a waterfall in Southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the boarder of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Devil’s Pool is a natural rock pool adjacent to the famous living Island situated on the edge of the Victoria Falls. During the dry season, Devil’s Pool is shallow enough that people can safely swim right to the edge before the waterfall drops more than 300 feet (100m). You don’t get swept down by the force of the falls because of a natural rock wall just below the surface. This is as close as you can get to the thunderous roar and permanent rainbows that adorn this magnificent Natural World Wonder. There are guides in attendance who will tell you exactly where to swim to avoid strong currents and rocks. Once you jumped safely and you are sitting on the rock wall, the guide will hold your ankles and you can lie and hang your arms over the edge. It is truly fantastic to look down on rainbows, hear the roar of the waterfall as it thunders past you, and look far, far down into the frothy, spray below.
When to go: - The Devil’s Pool experience is only possible when the water levels are low enough. The dry season usually lasts from September to January in this part of the world. During the dry-season the Victoria Falls are actually more spectacular to look at from the Zimbabwean side.
How to get: - Tongabezi owns Livingstone Island and operates 5 trips a day, with a maximum of 12 people per tour. You can e-mail them directly or you can also book a tour through recommended operators in Zambia and Zimbabwe. To spend more time in the Pool, you can hire a guide from Tongabezi to take you.
Is it dangerous to swim: - Jumping in to Devil’s Pool is an adventure thing to do, if you are careful and follow the instructions then there is no chance for any accidents. There is a safety line to hold onto when you are swimming.
