“Amazing experience combined with an absolutely awesome view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

The walk along Victoria Falls on the Zambia side is literally and figuratively a breathtaking experience. The views are incredible, with rainbows forming below your feet. In spite of rain gear provided by our guide, we still wound up soaked...but it is highly exhilarating. Truly one of the more amazing days of our recent trip to Africa.

“On the edge of the Fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Swim in Devil's Pool is a very exciting experience. Especially when sitting on the rock of edge of the Fall. It's safe as long as accompanied by the guides. The rock edge is quite wide and I felt safe when sit on it. One of our guide stands beside us for our safety and another is taking photo/video for us. Swimming to the edge and back have to overcome some current, but with the help of the guide there was no problem for me (an average swimmer). We have to hike to the Devil's Pool from the park entrance, through rocks and water, it depends on the season (water level).
