On the List of “Must See” Attractions in Zambia 

At the top of the mighty Victoria Falls is Devil’s Pool, which is adjacent to Livingstone Island. A rock lip works as a natural barrier that keeps you from being swept over the edge. Yep, that’s it. According to Safari Booking, the pool “stands almost midway across the mile-wide waterfall. It is accessible only on guided boat tours.” It isn’t required, but it’s helpful to know how to swim. If you can’t, you’ll need to at least be comfortable standing in water that reaches your waist. The best, and only time to get into Devil’s Pool safely, is from June to March. Outside of this period, the Zambezi water levels are dangerously high, and therefore, there are no tours.
