Bathe with the devil in this natural pool

The most dangerous swimming pool in the world, in Africa, is the most visited by tourists despite the danger it represents. But why risk his life there? Because humans are by nature in love with risk, danger and the forbidden.

At the top of Victoria Falls

A nature reserve, located at the top of Victoria Falls, on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia on the African continent, has become a natural pool, but not just any: it is today considered the most dangerous world!

To access the pool, you will need to travel to Livingstone Island, where you can get your entry. The “Devil's Pool” is a wall of natural rock, allowing the most daring tourists to take an unforgettable plunge to the edge of the cliff, nearly 103 meters high.

The pool of all dangers

But, the abyss is not the only danger of this swimming pool. In fact, in just a few minutes, the water flow can reach up to one meter. And do not think you are safe even if the sun is shining and no clouds are on the horizon because no dams exist and the rising water can result from floods caused by rain to hundreds. miles away.

Despite the death of nearly 15 people who fell over the precipice, the so-called “devil's pool” is increasingly known and frequented by tourists. Indeed, each year, the months of September and December are assaulted by travelers and curious people from all over the world who enjoy the riskiest bath of their life.
