Are You Brave Enough To Dive In?
On the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, at the head of the mammoth Victoria Falls, lies one of the world’s most extreme spots for a swim. Every year, hoards of adrenaline junkies trek up to “The Devil’s Pool” to tempt fate by bathing near the edge of a 360-foot straight drop.
According to the Daily Mail, swimmers come in droves during the dry season, when a jetty of usually submerged rocks provides a temporary barrier between afternoon leisure and terror. Rocks or not, what some call the largest, most dangerous Infinity pool relentlessly tests swimmers’ thrill-seeking resolve, as the Falls’ raging waters push them right to the edge of certain death.
