Victoria Water Falls May 8, 2017

"Victoria" — is one of the most spectacular attractions of Africa and one of the most unusual waterfalls in the world.
It is created by the Zambezi River that suddenly plummets into a narrow.

While it looks as if these visitors to Victoria Falls are flirting with disaster, swimming in the Devils Pool is not quite as dangerous as it looks, thanks to an underwater lip.
Located on the Zambia side of the falls, the pool is only accessible during the dry season from August to January.

This waterfall is among the most impressive to be found anywhere in the world.

The Zambezi River is more than 1.25 miles (2 kilometers) wide when it cascades over the lip of a large basalt plateau and plunges as much as 354 feet (108 meters).
The flow has been slicing slowly through this plateau for some two million years.
During this time the river has slowly retreated and the remnants of earlier, ancient falls can be seen in the gorges downstream from the current cataract.

The falls generate mists that can be spotted from more than a dozen miles (20 kilometers) away.

One of the peculiar ways of entertainment at Victoria, hardly known to the mainstream tourists — is a natural pool, about ten meters wide, located right next to the cliff, next to the Livingstone island.
Just a narrow strip separates it from the deep precipice. No wonder that his place was called "Devils Pool".

However, the safest way to admire the waterfall would be from the height of the birds flight, which we offer you here.
