Devil’s Pool

During the drier months of the year, the Zambezi River drops quite substantially, and from mid August to mid January, it is possible to walk along the lip of the falls. This can only be done from the Zambian side.

After thousands of years of erosion, many rock pools have formed and one of them has formed right on the very edge of the sheer drop. This is indeed the ultimate infinity pool.

The view from the edge is totally exhilarating as you feel the force of the Zambezi flowing past you and crashing down over the precipice; a hundred meter drop.

A rocky walk and swim in the Zambezi takes you to the pool. The rock lip brings you to a halt as the raging waters of the Zambezi crash over the cliffs a few feet away. Guides are in attendance to make sure you don’t go over the edge.

For the rest of the year, anyone foolish enough to enter the waters would be instantly swept to their deaths. But when levels drop, the natural rock walls of the Devil’s Pool come close enough to the surface to form a barrier and stop swimmers being carried away.
