General info: 

Devils Pool is the ultimate infinity pool. If you are looking for a taste of life on the edge, this just has to be the place. Only a slippery, submerged lip of rock stands between these bathers and a 100m drop over the world's largest waterfall. The Devil's Swimming Pool is certainly aptly named. It is a special place on Victoria falls, where it is possible to swim in a pool just above the roaring Victoria Falls. The water level needs to be very low to allow for safer swimming in the pool so it will not be possible anytime. Although variable every year the period when swimming is possible is normally from late August to early January. Five trips are offered throughout the day, each trip lasting about 1.5 to 2 hrs.
