The most popular location is known as the “Devil’s Swimming Pool” where during the months of September and December, visitors can swim as close as possible to the edge of the falls without falling over. Pretty cool isn’t it? Below are the brave and splendid photos of people who have visited the scariest pool.

    Gaaah! My insides just bunched up from acrophobia.

    People in Yosemite do this too. They usually fall over and die, its considered super dangerous. Not sure how this is remotely safe in victoria falls. Those people with children in there should be locked up for negligence.

    Beautiful photos. It would be nice to know how it is possible for them to get so close to the edge without falling over, and why only during certain months.

  4. that’s amazing! i would hate to look down from there tho…

    Clearly it’s a pool nearby the rest of the actual waterfall – still amazing nonetheless!

    re: “negligence” – nah, if they wish to help us clean out the gene pool, please let them. I doubt there’s much danger here however, this isolated pool doesn’t seem to have enough force to lift people up and over. It’s just as easy to die in a variety of ways at a hotel pool.

  7. whoa!! arnt these people scared for life?
