Calling all adrenaline junkies to dare this thrilling half day adventure that combines ziplining, the flying fox and the gorge swing all in one package!
Imagine swinging on a child's swing in the playground...now imagine a giant swing 95m long and 120m high above water...now imagine a 70m free fall before you begin swinging. Stop imagining and test your courage!
Take a jump on the world's first commercial gorge swing operation featured on the first series of the TV Show “Amazing Race”. This is truly a must do pit stop on your trip to Victoria Falls. You will experience, first hand, what the contestants had to conquer to get their next clue.
The gorge swing has a 100% safety record and will give you that ultimate adrenaline fix. This will easily be one of the most memorable highlights of your trip if not your life. The guides will carefully walk you through the safety procedures and put on your harness for the ultimate adrenaline kick of your life, reaching speeds of up to 180km/hour in a few seconds.
The gorge swing is suspended across the gorge at a point where the width is 316m and 120m deep. A harness is attached to the jumper and then the jumping ropes, the other end of which is pivoted to the middle of the cable. The jumper leaps off the edge of the gorge, free falling about 70m before going into a 95m long pendulum type swing.
Experience the adrenaline rush of travelling at a speed of 106 km, hurtling 425m across the gorge, while suspended 120m above the breath taking beauty of the Zambezi water below!
The zipline runs 120m above the Batoka Gorge, spanning 425m from one side of the Zambezi to the other.
On the zipline ride, a real adrenaline high, you are harnessed and then launched into the deep gorge, rushing across the scenic chasm at speeds of up to 106 km's on a pulley. This is the longest zip line in the world and is suitable for all ages.
The experienced guides will make you feel at ease as you take a leap of faith knowing that they are backed up with a 100% safety record, 17 years of experience under their belt and a team willing to make this adrenaline kick a breeze.
Take a running jump into thin air over the chasm, soaring horizontally through the air over the turmoil of the Zambezi below.
Fly over the gorge! Take a running jump into thin air over the chasm, sending you coasting smoothly across to the other side of the spectacular gorge.
You get clipped into a harness which is attached to a pulley which then glides along an almost horizontal cable across the gorge, 125m above the valley floor. This gives you the sensation of flying. It looks tame in comparison to the foefie slide and gorge swing, but it is still a thrilling experience which requires great courage.
The gorge at this point is 200 meters wide and 120 meters deep. This is a great appetiser before you try the zip line and gorge swing.
