Highwire

Did that bungee off Vic Falls bridge awaken your taste for adrenaline? Take a 1/2 day for gorge swing, flying fox and zipline

Did the thrill of that bungee jump off Vic Falls bridge leave you wanting more? No worries! Wait till you'll experience the pure adrenaline buzz of a Gorge Swing, Zip Line, Flying Fox or Rapp Jump.

Take a morning or afternoon out and head to the Zimbabwean side of Batoka Gorge for a taste of these jaw-dropping activities. The adventure starts at Lookout above the second and third Zambezi gorges, 5 minutes from Victoria Falls town. Even if you don't jump, the amazing views of rapid #4, "Morning Glory" will get your heart pumping.

The Gorge Swing takes the cookie.  You're on the edge of the gorge, harnessed then hooked onto a highwire 120m above the Zambezi River.  Take a leap off the platform and free fall about 70m before going into a 95m long pendulum swing.  High fives guaranteed once you're back at the Lookout above!

The Zambezi Zipline is the 2nd longest in Africa. You're harnessed in a seated position and attached to a pulley then launched 425m across the gorge.  You'll accelerate to a speed of 106km/hr on the sliding descent.  It should leave your eyes watering.

The "Flying Fox" is either an appetiser before or a cool-off after your swing and slide. You're harnessed and attached to a pulley in a face down position then launched horizontally across a 200m span of emptiness above the gorge.

The Rapp Jump is a reverse abseil 120m down the sheer face of the gorge.  The conventional option is a regular abseil looking up the cliff face.
