Wild, beautiful and with pockets still undiscovered, here are a few reasons why Zambia is a perfect destination for your next exhilarating holiday:
Livingstone Island and Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls
Diving into Devil’s Pool seems the most absurd idea in the world, but if you dare, this is one of the most exhilarating experiences around. Your guide will take you by boat to the very spot where Dr David Livingstone in 1855 first caught sight of Mosi-oa-Tunya (meaning ‘the Smoke that Thunders’), a tiny island just metres from the plummeting falls. The highlight of a trip to Livingstone Island is the leap of faith into the water next to Victoria Falls. Without harness or equipment you will never have felt such a sense of freedom as diving into the waters metres from the dramatic falls. Sit on ‘Devil’s Seat’, a rock under the water which gives an excellent view. This experience is not for the faint-hearted but sometimes stepping outside the familiar is most rewarding.
