Victoria Falls, straddling the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, is a virtual playground for thrill-seekers from all walks of life. And as if going to see the largest curtain of falling water on the planet wasn’t enough to get your heart racing, Victoria Falls is home to some of the most adrenaline pumping activities, guaranteed to satisfy the adventurer in you.
Want to test your courage? Victoria Falls is an adventure sport mecca that will help you do just that. Whether you are in the town of Vitoria Falls in Zimbabwe or in Livingstone in Zambia, here are two spine-tingling activities that will deliver the adrenaline injections you’ve been craving.
Voted one of the world’s top five adrenaline experiences, Victoria Falls bungee jumping won’t disappoint. Imagine being perched atop the edge of the legendary Victoria Falls Bridge, strapped into a harness, feet bound tightly together, arms spread out wide, knowing that a 111 metre freefall head first towards the crocodile-infested Zambezi awaits you.
Feel like chickening out? You’re out of luck. There are two men standing directly behind you, waiting to give you a friendly push, just in case you get cold feet. As you stand there, waiting in anticipation, hearing the thunder of Victoria Falls, you have only moments to try and collect yourself before the men begin the countdown: “5…4…3…2…1—BUNGEE!
And then it happens, the rush of an exhilarating freefall. Before you even have a chance to let fear take hold of you, you’ll be hanging above this breathtaking gorge, gently swinging over the shimmering Zambezi, grinning from ear to ear.
If you think all bungee jumping experiences are the same, you clearly haven’t been to Victoria Falls.
Had a chance to you catch your breath from bungee jumping? Great! Then you’ll absolutely want to take on the gorge swing. What’s that? You’re afraid of heights? Well you had better brace yourself. The swing is 95 metres long and is suspended 120 metres above the tumbling river. Take our word for it, this spectacular swing experience is not for the faint of heart.
Once you are attached to your harness, you’ll leap of the edge of the gorge, freefalling for about 70 metres. Sound scary? That’s only the half of it. This heart-pounding drop, turns into a 95-metre pendulum swing. If the gorge swing doesn’t take your breath away, the magnificent views will.
