Alfa Omega, Captain Harry, Chef Linda, Guides Felix and Desdere all made it safe, delicious and the most exciting experience to remember. Alfa Omega took great pictures of us while we concentrated in breathing to keep calm and enjoy!

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!

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.
