How many visitors in Devil's pool?
I'm doing a research for University and I'd like to know how much visitors in Devil's Pool contribute to Victoria Falls tourism. It would be very interesting for my research to know some numbers. So, please, how many swimmers in Devil's Pool in the last years, each year? And, if it is possible, how much locals earn from Devil's Pool every year?

Devil's Pool in mid-May
(NY, NY, USA)
Can one take a tour to Devil's Pool in mid-May?
Unfortunately not - the Livingstone island tour (which incorporates the Devils swim) generally only opens around June as the water levels drop but the Devils swim will only start in August sometime.
Devil's Pool in March end
by Vaibhav Gala
I am Vaibhav from India. Family of a couple and children of age 7 and 11. We would like to visit Devil's pool preferably in march end. My question is:
1) 3 of us are non-swimmers, still can we visit and see the edge of Devil's Pool?
2) March end, water level will be allowable to go?
Another alternative we had was of May end (as per school vacations here). But I think, water level at that time will not permit to go there.
Please guide us on above..
Swimming in Devil's Pool
I'll be in Victoria at the end of the month and was wondering if we will be allowed to swim in the devil's pool at this time of year...March.
Unfortunately not, the Devils swim and the Livingstone island tour is now closed until around June or July.

Swimming in Devils Pool in September?
A friend and I will be arriving in Livingstone at the very beginning of September 2013 as our last stop in Africa before heading to Australia. We are hoping to swim in Devils Pool before we need to leave, but are wondering what our chances of doing so (since the beginning of September seems to be the very beginning of the season for doing so). Can you let us know what the likelihood of us being able to participate in the Devils Pool swim within the first week (or so) of September?
How many visitors a year to Devils Pool?
How many people a year (including guides) swim in Devil's pool?
staying in Zimbabwe- want to do to devil's pool is yellow fever necessary?
A group of us are visiting Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe side for 3 days before flying back to tour South Africa. As part of our trip we would like to visit Livingstone Island and swim the Devil's Pool which is only accessible from the Zambian side. Do we need yellow fever vaccination to do this as we are travelling back into South Africa? Will our passports be stamped by the Zambian and Zimabawean authorities to show we crossed the border as I understand we need to get a double entry visa for Zimbabwe and a tourist visa for Zambia which would alert the SA authorities too.
Took travel advice from doctor saying not needed but our tour operator is suggesting any trip to Zambia requires vaccination or exemption certificate.
I am planning to come to Victoria Falls in from Sep 3-6. I am really looking forward to the Devils Pool. Is it sure to be functional by Sep 3 or should I try and delay my trip by a couple of weeks to be sure that I will not miss it? Also, will the water flow be much lower by, say, Sep 20 as compared to Sep 3 thus reducing the viewing spectacle or is it a marginal difference?

Lunar Rainbow and Devil's Pool
Hi Boo and Tony,
Loving the website! I was wondering if you knew whether the Devil's Pool might be open in the middle of July or whether the water is too high?
Also on the 14th July I think there is a full moon. In your opinion would it be better to see this from the Zam or Zim side?
Any advice would be great!
How do we get to the Devils Pool?
by Michelle Burke
We are planning to visit Victoria Falls from the 5th August to the 8th 2011. We will be staying in Zimbabwe. We would love to swim in the devils pool but we aren't sure how to arrange it...Is it possible to arrange it from the Zimbabwe side? Will we need a visa for Zambia? Also will the water level be low enough in early September to do it??? Any help would be good.
