The Devils Swimming Pool at Victoria Falls … would YOU dare ?

Tracey Campbell - May 28, 2008

Only a short 2 hour flight from Jo’burg, a trip to Victoria Falls is certainly memorable. One of the 7 Wonders of the World, the sheer noise of the Falls as they cascade over the edge into the deep gorge is deafening, and the misty clouds of spray, occasionally broken by rainbows, are visible from over 40 km away.

For some, however, the real thrill of visiting the Falls during September through to December comes from swimming right up to the very edge of the Falls themselves …
Known as “The Devil’s Swimming Pool”, this naturally formed safe pool, accessed via Livingstone Island, offers visitors the adrenelin-pumping opportunity to swim in shallow water literally within a couple of inches from the edge of the gorge.

This spot is becoming well known amongst the “radical tourist” industry as more and more people search for the ultimate experience.
