Living Life on the Edge

Ever feel like getting closer to a waterfall? Enjoy living life on the edge?

It’s possible at the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe during dry seasons. It is known as the “Devil’s Swimming Pool” as tourists dive in to the water and are pushed by the currents until they are eventually stopped by a natural rock wall.

Many tourists try this including children. So how about you? Do you dare?

Do you have what it takes to persevere and not give up?
Do you have the drive to go above & beyond your limits?

Underwater Wonders

Diving itself is a dangerous ‘sport,’ but when it is mixed with exploring uncharted territory, extremely cold temperatures, low-visibility conditions, little space, frolicking with wild animals, and limited air supply, you have what is known as Cave Diving. The invention of the sport started when somebody was attempting to get rid of a dead body. According to PBS, cave diving is more dangerous than climbing Mount Everest. Because of all its associated risks and nature, the National Speleological Society defines a successful cave dive as “one you return from.”
