“Swimming at the edge of Africa’s Victoria Falls might seem like a daredevil fool hardy stunt.
But, during the months of September and December, you’ll see swimmers, even families with kids enjoying a dip, just inches from the edge. They’re hardly suicidal as these pics show, and the shallow pool they’re flailing about in is called Devil’s Pool. It’s a natural, relatively safe rock pool situated at the top of the falls.
This creates ideal conditions for swimming, if you’re prepared to make a short leap of faith. Swimming just two inches from the edge in the midst of the thunderous roar of water all around you can make for an exhilarating adrenaline rush, and the photo opps are incredible.
If the footage is anything to go by, this is one of those “51 things to do before you die” kind of must-tries, no?”
This blog is simply a collection of photos (some my own, some not), etc. that I find beautiful, amusing, poignant, or that I can relate to in some way. I have a soft spot for beautiful photos of Cape Breton (Nova Scotia, Canada) and Massachusetts (USA).
