Yet, the good news is this is a tourism offering in which professionals make you to step close to the edge of the Victoria falls, one of the tallest falls in the world.
As per reports, when the flow of Zambezi River is slow in between June to December, brave people who are also good swimmers are allowed to go near the Devil’s pool under professional guidance. Devil’s pool is a shallow pool naturally created close to the edge of the falls. And then people who can swim close to the edge of the falls they are allowed to avail this adventure.
Of course, as narrated by Twitter users, these people are held securely by local guides who hold their ankles so that you may not be pulled with the force of the water.

A user wrote, “My husband just got back. It’s very expensive tho. Someone holds your feet so you won’t fall.”
Another user mentioned about his daughter’s experience and he mentioned about the person who stands on the edge and takes the photo. This man’s act is more risky. “My daughter did it earlier in the year. Well organised and they do hold your ankles, but it’s the bloke who takes the film using your phone that I admire, and he’s standing on that edge ever day!,” the Twitter user commented.
And yet another user mentioned about her friend who died there. “I have a friend who died doing this. Please don’t. The pic is not that important, I promise you,” she wrote.
