“Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”
—David Livingstone That’s rather what I thought too, and as we hiked along the the cliff opposite Victoria Falls, I couldn’t help but notice a group of happy adventurers basking Jacuzzi-style at the top of the world’s largest waterfall, waving at people and peering over the edge into the abyss of steamy spray below. This spot is known as the Devil’s Pool. With a name like that, I might have been more wary, but it looked so amazing that I signed up for a side tour that afternoon during our free time, despite our guide’s suggestion that I might be crazy and his reminder that it was so dangerous he had never gone (nor did our tour company endorse it). I figured nobody would allow it if it was really that dangerous.
Well, let’s just say African and American standards are different!Since coming home, I’ve done a little research and noticed other descriptions, such as “the world’s most dangerous pool,” “the world’s ultimate infinity pool,” “most thrilling, insane, awesome,” “death-defying feat,” etc.At any rate, I’ll tell you more about our experience tomorrow, but next week
I’ll give you a list of 11 reasons why I don’t personally recommend it!“The wise man’s eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness.” (Ecclesiastes 2:14)
