Devil’s pool sits right on top of Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall on the whole planet, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, with 100 meters drops to the water below. The width of the fall is one, flowing at 3,000 cubic meters per second. The spray of the fall can be seen from 50 kilometers away.
Watch these girls perform death defying jump and swims to the edge of the peak. It really terrifies me to watch them so close to falling.
Tragic Death At Devil’s Pool
In 2009, a brave Zimbabwean tour guide was presumed dead after plunging 90m into the Victoria Falls while trying to rescue a tourist, police said.
“The tour guide quickly grabbed the tourist’s hand and successfully pulled him back into the pool but in the process, he slipped and fell into the gorge down below.”
But thanks to 360 videos from National Geography, we are able to experience this amazing view without the fear of being so close to falling to our death.
