Looks really fucking scary.
The spray must be insane.
People pay money to go in it, as the shelf of the pool is right next to a massive drop. Its perfectly safe however, but it takes a long time to get there.
But it says there's a natural rock wall that stops the current taking you over. I don't get how people can feel safe lying over the edge or sitting on top of that wall.
or something. I wouldn't feel at all safe standing on there with no water. Water just makes it even more terrifying. I know that's sort of the point but I can only assume they haven't invented insurance in Zimbabwe.
I couldn't go near that
it's perfectly safe, in fact probably safer than walking within a few feet of the Vic Falls cliff on the footpath.
The least safe thing to do in that particular area is to try to cross the Zimbabwe border whilst teasing the automatic-rifle carrying guards. I sat on the Zambia side and watched as three of my good friends made a bolt for a photo opportunity with the "Welcome to Zimbabwe" sign. Being intercepted at gunpoint with a rifle muzzle trained on you is "hairy", in their words.
