Victoria Falls is known as the adrenaline capital of Southern Africa. For all the thrill-seekers, adventurers, and adrenaline junkies, this is the ultimate place to get your blood pumping! From bungee jumping to helicopter flights, Victoria Falls Safaris has rounded up 5 mind-blowing activities that are sure to give you the ultimate adrenaline rush.
1. Bungee Jumping
You can do bungee jumping in many places all over the world. But the 111-meter high jump on the Victoria Falls Bridge, which crosses the Zambezi River and connects Zambia to Zimbabwe, isn’t comparable to any other bungee jump spot.
Your reward? A four-second jump with speeds up to 120 km/h. This ‘once in a lifetime’ experience is an incredible opportunity to challenge your limits and test your fears.
2. Gorge Swing
If you haven’t had enough of a rush while jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, we can recommend the Gorge Swing. The main difference between the swing and the bungee jump is that you’ll be wearing a harness attached to your upper body instead of a cord around your feet – and you won’t be hanging upside down!
Your reward? Experience a free fall of 80 meters to the sound of the thundering Victoria Falls. See the landscape and water masses speed past you on this unforgettable swing!
3. Flying Fox Thrill
Imagine standing on a platform and launching yourself into thin air while the mighty Zambezi roars below you. The Flying Fox offers users the chance to zip line 300 meters across the Batoka Gorge whilst enjoying the spectacular view of the Victoria Falls and wide expanse. The Flying Fox can be done solo or in tandem!
4. Canopy Tour
The Canopy Tour is all about sliding through the tree tops of the ravine forest. From up top, you can watch the birdlife and jaw-dropping views of the Zambezi Gorge and Victoria Falls Bridge. It’s an experience that’s suitable for adventurers of all ages including families and tour groups. This fun activity gives you a bird’s eye view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world.
5. Helicopter Flight
Last but not least, why not explore Victoria Falls with an incredible helicopter flight? The flight is called a “Flight of Angels” and is our top recommendation for everyone who visits Zimbabwe. It will give you breath-taking views that will definitely remain in your memories for years to come.
Our top tip? Make sure your camera is fully charged – the photo opportunities are incredible.
