Victoria Falls

The mighty Victoria Falls is worth crossing the continent for, whether it’s to laze in the aptly named Devil’s Pool (take the precarious walk, literally out across the top of the falls to this natural infinity pool, to see what we mean) or to get active with all manner of adventures from white-water rafting to bungee jumping within sight and sound of the falls, known locally as ‘the smoke that thunders. It’s a beautiful, beautiful place, not to mention one of the most awe-inspiring sights on the continent.

Devil’s Pool

One of the most thrilling experiences – not only at the falls but in all of Africa – is the hair-raising journey to Livingstone Island. Here you will bathe in Devil’s Pool – nature’s ultimate infinity pool, set directly on the edge of the Victoria Falls. You can leap into the pool and then poke your head over the edge to get an extraordinary view of the 100m drop. Here also you’ll see the plaque marking the spot where David Livingstone first sighted the falls.
You can only visit Livingstone Island as part of a tour, and swimming in Devil’s Pool is only possible during the drier months, usually from the middle of August to mid-January. Five trips depart daily by boat to Livingstone Island, from where you’ll swim to Devil’s Pools. When the water is low around October and November, you’re able to access it via walking across, but a guide is compulsory. Note that access to the island is closed from around March to May when the water levels are too high.
