With the incredible backdrop of Victoria Falls and the views of the mighty Zambezi river below you, the Bungee jump here is known as one of the most scenic in the world.

If you are looking for a heart-stopping experience, then you cannot beat swimming at the very top of the falls. The Devil’s Pool is a natural pool located at the top of Victoria Falls in Zambia with a rock ledge on the lip of the actual Falls. Only accessible during the dry season when the water level is low enough for visitors to swim in the pool safely, the Devils Pool and ‘Livingstone island tour’ are available five times a day. The operation is run with safety as the highest priority. Departures take place from the Dry Manzi jetty launch site, with a five minute boat ride to navigate the rocky channels in the approach to Victoria Falls. Once on Livingstone island, enjoy a brief tour before entering the rock pool to swim. Refreshments are usually served back on the island. Don’t miss this unique photo opportunity!
