Over a mile long and 300 feet high, with a thunder that can be heard from miles around, Victoria Falls not only provides visitors with amazing scenery, it also has a little known rock pool that is situated right at the edge of the falls for those who dare to swim! Devils Pool is something that has to be experienced to truly be believe, but during September - December visitors can experience this thrill due to lower water levels. Devils Pool can be accessed via Livingston island, and with one small leap of faith you can swim to the edge of one of the largest waterfalls on earth and literally lean over the edge as water rushes past you.

The Lion Park is by far the top thing to do in Johannesburg. It’s a bit of a drive to Lanseria, about a twenty-minute drive from the northern suburbs, but definitely worth the trip. There is another game park around Johannesburg, The Lion and Rhino Park, but it does not offer nearly the experience of The Lion Park, with animals few and far between, and overgrown bush hiding those animals you happen to spot. At the Johannesburg Lion Park, enjoy the white lions, giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs, jackals and more at your own personal risk. The only fences are between the ...574 miles away.
It may look insane, but the guy at the picture is not a Photoshoped silhouette placed over a fake landscape. He's swimming at the Devil’s Pool, a natural rock pool at the very top of the Victoria Falls, at Zimbabwe, with a height of about 100 metres.
If you’re ever in Zimbabwe, don’t miss the chance to take a swim in The Devil’s Pool, a small lagoon, enclosed by rocks, on the edge of one of the biggest, most beautiful waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls. Set on Livingstone Island, at a height of 103 meters, Devil’s Pool is definitely one of the most surreal locations on Earth.
Victorian explorer David Livingstone reported the existence of the Victoria Falls back to the West after discovering them in 1855, and the numbers of tourists streaming to visit the "smoke that thunders" have been increasing ever since.
After all, Victoria Falls, the town, is cheek-by-jowl with Victoria Falls, the waterfall -- a jaw-dropping, heart-stopping torrent one mile wide and 300 feet high, its constant roar audible for a mile or more, its towering cloud of spray visible from the farthest horizon. Mere words do not do justice to Victoria Falls. One must see it to appreciate it.
IN his time, David Livingstone was Jacques Cousteau, Billy Graham and Bono, rolled into one — and the worldwide expansion of the telegraph allowed more people to learn, more quickly, more details about his exploits than the public had known about any previous explorer.

"It is fatal to know too much at the outset. Boredom comes as quickly to the traveler who knows his route as to the novelist who is over certain of his plot."
