Here’s what it’s like to swim on the edge of Victoria Falls

After a brief hiatus from making travel movies (moving continents has gotten in the way of my filmmaking) I’m excited to announce that I have a new video on my Youtube channel!

And, if I may say so myself, it’s pretty awesome. Actually, breathtaking is probably a more accurate description.

Because, in my latest clip, I take you with me to Africa, so you can peep Zambia and Victoria Falls in all their glory.

You see, when I travelled to the motherland a few months ago, I not only had the opportunity to visit the mighty mighty Victoria Falls, but to SWIM in them. Yes, SWIM in them.

And thus, this video chronicles my frolic in what is known as the Angel’s Pool in Livingstone, Zambia. Talk about living on the edge! (pun intended!) It’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

So give the video a watch and then ask yourself: Would you swim in the falls or nah?!?

WATCH IN HD for a maximum adrenaline rush, and, if you’re feeling it, help a sista out by sharing with your friends and subscribing to my Youtube channel!

Have you ever visited Victoria Falls? Perched on its precipice? I’d love to know!

    Great stuff as always, Oneika. Visiting the falls has been on my list for a long time. Hope to make it there in the next couple years.

    Stay on the good foot.

    Looks like quite the adventure! Totally adding this to my travel wish list. Combined with a safari tour and a river tour in Botswana, it would be my personal trip of a lifetime.

    Wow wow wow, watching that made me fear for your life! I’m intensely afraid of heights (or more the falling to my death part) – I almost cried while on the Xstrata treetop walkway at Kew Gardens. In these instances I’ll leave the globetrotting to you, completely satisfied with a video that made me feel like I was there!

    Ahhh I’m so envious! This is something I would have LOVED to do at Victoria Falls, but I was there in May/June when the falls were at high-flow, and swimming is them is definitely a no-no. Guess I’ll just have to go back someday!

    No, I didn’t swim, but I did fish on the Zambezi. We had to watch out for rhinos, crocs, etc. The river was high, which foiled our fishing goals. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy reading your posts.

    Incredible!! And scary!! Last year we visited Iguazu Falls on both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides, and the power and noise were just out of this world. Mother Nature is pretty amazing, huh? 🙂
