This is something that you need to do ! It made me feel alive. I must admit that it could be a bit dangerous.

Lovely time to visit the falls, however very scary to visit devils pool now unless you a thrill seaker as the water force is too high. Overall livingstone is a great place to be and the falls on the zambian side was better. The knife edge bridge experience is a once in a life time.

We planned a trip to Victoria Falls primarily because my husband was insistent upon going to Devil's Pool. Devil's Pool can be visited only during low water season, roughly Sept-late January.

This was such an amazing experience. A must do for anyone that visits. You literally go right to the edge of the falls. OK for a mediocre swimmers, guides are with you the entire time. Take your cameras as there is a guide that will only takes pics for you. A sweet breakfast after the excursion! :) sooooo worth it!

That's the trek down and up again through lush vegetation. The view from the bottom offering a different perspective of the incredible falls. Well worth the trek down (and up).

I was in Devil's Pool in November 2016 and I'm very happy I was able to book a ticket for this attraction. This is a must do if you are in the area and the pool is open. You won't be disappointed. I do suggest booking a seat before you arrive. Trying to get a seat the day of can... More

Fantastic experience. Its a must do, but at time it feel like a little bit of a pose and then it's over. I would have liked a little more time in the pool it self, relaxing and taking it all in with out people taking photos.
