There is very little information about this attraction, and it has been listed as an internet hoax, but it is a genuine attraction and it is accessible through the company 'Tongabezi' at the Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia.

An absolute must-do if you're in Livingstone at the right time of year. It's incredibly exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. Would def do it again!

Too early in the season for Devils Pool, so we did the Angels Pool. It was an amazing, exhilarating experience. We're a family of 4, so had a boat and 2 guides to ourselves. I was very apprehensive, but it was thrilling rather than frightening...More

Gotta admit my heart was spinning out of control, feeling the anxiety do what it does to stifle breathing. This is the quintessesional experience which has as much adrenalin charge as swimming with bull sharks. But that's another tale. Some call it the ultimate infinity...More

Devil's Pool is only open certain times of year, when the water is lower/less powerful. Angel's Armchair/Angel's Pool is on the other side of the island and is open for a bit longer than Devil's Pool. I also preferred it because it has great views...More

Generally mid August to Jan but depends on water levels that year. Might be earlier. There is another pool though that's just as much fun on the edge that you would get taken to in July.
