There is very little information about this attraction, and it has been listed as an internet hoax, but it is a genuine attraction and it is accessible through the company 'Tongabezi' at the Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia.

Well worth doing as the view is spectacular. A place is provided for you to change, but be aware it's not the most private. Bags etc are locked away while you do the last part of the walk and swim. It is about a 40...More
