Devil's Pool, Victoria Falls

Imagine yourself atop of a large waterfall, just a couple of feet away from the edge of what would be certain death.  You pause for a moment, then yell out "come on honey, you have to see this".

Well if you were swimming in the devil's pool at the top of the Victoria Falls in Zambia, you might just find your yourself in such a situation.

During certain times of the year the river is at a level where a natural rock barrier forms a swimming area with very little current.  During this time people are able to swim out to the very edge of the falls without being forced over.

Here are some of the amazing travel videos & pictures I've come across.
