Zambia: Devil's Pool
Devil’s Pool is a natural pool of water that’s situated atop of Victoria Falls, renown for being among the largest waterfalls in the world. It’s in the Zambezi River, adjacent to the famous Livingstone Island, along the Zambia-Zimbabwe border. Right on the edge of the massive waterfall, a calm pool of water forms and daring visitors can actually swim in this pool , overviewing the crashing waters hundreds of meters below. An astounding 500-million-litres of water cascade over the falls every minute and make a rumbling noise that echoes through the valley below.
Devil’s Pool has been described by travelers as the world’s ultimate infinity pool. It is a death-defying feat that even the most casual of thrill seekers must add to their travel bucket list. It is usually open for tourists between mid August and mid January - depending on Zambezi water levels.
