Optional extra on this Victoria Falls Tour:
During the drier months of the year, the Zambezi River drops quite substantially, and from mid August to mid January, it is possible to walk along the lip of the falls. This can only be done from the Zambian side.
After thousands of years of erosion, many rock pools have formed and one of them has formed right on the very edge of the sheer drop. This is indeed the ultimate infinity pool.
It takes a rocky walk and swim in the Zambezi to reach the pool – then the fearless ones leap into the pool and get pushed to the edge by the force of the river. The rock lip brings them to a halt as the raging waters of the Zambezi crash over the cliffs a few feet away. There are guides in attendance who are there to make sure you don’t go over the edge.
