The Devil’s Swimming Pool is located in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and has become a hot destination for global adventurers. During the months of September and December, eager travelers can venture out to the very edge of the 128 meteer tall waterfall and swim around. Takes a big pair to go play here. Scroll down to the bottom to watch the video on how some truly nuts people play at the Devil’s Swimming Pool.

  1. Its really not that scary, just dont do anything stupid. Heaps of people go around the pools although i did have a close call as the stepping stones were washed away!

  2. Yeah, it does look pretty dangerous… just imagine if a small dam or something gave way upriver…

  3. You gotta be willing to take the risk of life. Yes a small dam could give way, yes erosion may some day take it’s toll, yes you could very well have a coronary embolism in the next 5 minutes and be dead in the sixth. Death is a part of living. Take the risk, do things that push your limits…. enjoy LIFE!!!

  4. This is like rock climbing. Try to not do things where you only get one mistake. It’s the secret to a long life.

  5. WOW! this looks really cool i want to go but my mum doesn’t This is a question: Is there a person who watches you? Can you die? it it dangurous?
