The Devil’s Swimming Pool: Swim On The Edge Of The Victoria Falls

In Zimbabwe, Africa, you will find the magnificent Victoria Falls at a height of 128m. The location is known as "The Devil's Swimming Pool". During the months of September and December, people can swim as close as possible to the edge of the falls without falling over! These falls are becoming well known amongst the "radical tourist" industry as more and more people search for the ultimate experience.

Looks like she’s about to take the 360-foot plunge, doesn’t it? Afraid it’s not true, as long as it’s not the wet season when the water is high enough for the current to actually sweep you off the edge. People can safely cavort in the “Devil’s Swimming Pool” without any problems. It’s so safe in fact, that these people took their kids:

Although that would be one amazing experience/sight... I would respectfully like to say, "Eff That." :)

Now I know why it is called Devil's Swimming Pool. It's really scary but looks fun... :D

While browsing the picture I am really scared with girl lying at the edge of the creek. It looks like that she really will fall.

Two thumbs up for the pool. :D
