VICTORIA FALLS AND ZAMBIA
Victoria Falls is astounding from every viewpoint. But for the gutsy, there’s the Devil’s Pool on Livingstone Island – a bubbling waterhole on the falls’ edge where you can stagger into and squat on slimy rocks to stare at the churning mass of water plunging into the depths of the Zambezi. Spray will surge skywards, casting rainbows above your head and if you’ve ever wanted to feel the staggering force of Mother Nature, this is your answer. For escapism into another pristine wilderness, board a flight from Livingstone to the Lower Zambezi and check into Chiawa Camp – a preposterously idyllic lodge that curates outstanding game walks, game drives and alluring waterbound experiences. You might even spot a passing elephant or a slumbering lion while wallowing in your claw-foot bath, thanks to your timber tent’s killer views over the floodplains.
