A traveller swam in a stunning natural pool in the middle of a salt desert.
Bridget Thackwray is one half the New Zealand traveling duo, Expedition Earth and in June, the 25-year-old and her partner Topher Richwhite, 33, visited the Danakil Depression, a geological depression in Ethiopia, which is one of the hottest places on planet Earth.
The area is spotted with deserts and hot springs, and Bridget was filmed swimming in a stunning natural pool which appeared in the middle of the huge salt flat.
Bridget said: “The Danakil Depression is one of the hottest and lowest locations on the planet.
“The pool was minus 127 metres below the sea level and was very, very salty.
“The area is also dangerous due to bandits from Eritrea.
“We had to have security personnel on our car as well as a guide, but they could not speak English well.”
