Devils Pool, the Scariest Pool in the World


Happy Halloween!!!!

For the spookiest day of the year, only the scariest pool in the world seemed appropriate.

The title belongs to the Devil’s Pool which is located at the fringes of Victoria Falls in Africa!!

During most of the year, the current prevents access to the Devil’s Pool, but during the dry season the water level is low enough so that rocks form a natural barrier and create an eddy safe for swimmers.

Local folklore regards the place as cursed because despite the rock barrier, deaths occur occasionally.  The local council urges visitors to stay within the designated swimming area.
