You’ve done bungy jumping and white water rafting, you’ve sky dived and eaten a cockroach… are you ready for the next big adrenalin thrill?
In Livingstone, Zambia you can go out to Livingstone Island in the dry season (July to March) and when the mighty Victoria Falls (twice the height of Niagara at 110m) dwindle you can jump off the edge of the roaring falls of mist into this jacuzzi called the Devil’s Pool in the very dry months (usually late August to January).
It was accidentally discovered by a fisherman, who no doubt is still off somewhere giving thanks.
If you want to do this, only 16 people at a time take a boat ride down the mighty Zambezi where the sound of the crashing Mosi-oa-Tunya falls (meaning The Smoke That Thunders) and the mist are seen from huge distances. The only licensed tour company to run visits to little Livingstone Island is Tongabezi Tours. DO NOT go with unlicensed guides as it can be very dangerous. Obviously!
Me? I’d rather eat the guide’s shorts.
