Devil's pool sits right on top of the Victoria Falls - the
largest water fall of the whole planet, 1 of the 7 natural wonders of the world, with 100 meter drop to the
rocks below. And we are going to swim to it!
An exhilarating boat ride directly towards the top of the falls, you arrive at Livinston island. Short walk with our guide Omega and you sat at the exact spot where David Livingston first view the falls in 1885, and explained: scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by the angels in their light. Width is 1,700 meters wide, flowing 3,000 cubic meters per second. Spray from the drop can been seen up to 50 kilometers away
Our guides helped us over the rocks, taking care to show us whre to step. And then, we began to swim. It is so incredible to be swimming on top of the waterfall. No just any waterfall, the Victoria falls.
We are giving a very detailed safety briefing by Omage, what to do, what not to do. Then, we jumped into the falls. Less than a meter before plummeting to his death, he sat on what's called "The Devils Armchais." The other guides defied death to get into their safety positions, while Omega assured us that no one would be doing the "No rope bunjee jump." Then, it was our turn.
We have been up the helicopter and seen the falls from afar, but this was definitely the most exiciting way to experience the falls - actually getting in them! No many people can say they have seen the Victoria falls, and very few people can say they have truely experienced it like we did.
This is the coolest thing we have done on our travel.
And so glad we did it!
