Victoria Falls

Bridge Slide & Bridge Swing

Victoria Falls is known as Africa's Adventure Capital, and the historic Victoria Falls Bridge is home to three of the area's most thrilling adrenalin activities - the Bridge Slide Victoria Falls, Bridge Swing Victoria Falls.

After the famous Victoria Falls, the Victoria Falls Bridge comes in as another legendary landmark that adds icing to the Victoria Falls must see list. The iconic Bridge is one of the most popular places in Zimbabwe and a true work of engineering. It was constructed in 1905 and was a remarkable achievement at the time as it was the highest bridge above water level in the world.

The historic man-made bridge opened doors to commerce, trade and recently tourism to the two neighbouring countries of Zimbabwe and Zambia. Not only is the view of the bridge on its own amazing but there are also some mind-blowing Victoria Falls Activities that you can do on the bridge, including the Bridge Slide and the Bridge Swing.

Located at the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, the Victoria Falls Bridge offers a fantastic view of the deep Batoka Gorge, and the raging Zambezi River below. To the north and northeast, you will see a section of the Victoria Falls and the first rapids below (maybe a few white water rafters as well). To the west, the river goes on between the steep cliff faces, and above the gorge in the distance, you can see the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel.

Bridge Slide

The Bridge Slide Victoria Falls is unquestionably the most sedate activity on the bridge out of all the bridge activities. Everyone can do it, from young children (minimum 6 years) to the elderly. It is deemed the safer activity on the bridge unlike the other 2 (bridge swing and bungee jump) that dare you to be bold and test your bravery. The slide provides an adrenaline rush that doesn’t leave you scared but wanting to go again.

How Is It Done ?

This is an ultimate zip lining slide that is more than 100 meters above the ground and 300 meters over the Zambezi. You start on the Zambian side where you will be strapped and fitted onto a harness. The harness is attached to a galvanized or stainless-steel wire that runs across the gorge to the bridge. With your camera strapped to your arm you will then let go and glide across with the mighty Zambezi roaring from below.

How Many People Can Go At A Time ?

You can choose to go solo, or you can go with someone else (tandem bridge slide) but not more than 2 people can go at a time.

Age Restrictions For Bridge Slide

The minimum age is 6 years to do the activity and children between the ages of 6 and 13 must go in tandem with a parent, guardian or someone older.

Bridge Swing

Have you ever wondered how George of the jungle must have felt swinging across vines in the jungle? This activity gives you that similar feeling in one ultimate Bridge Swing. Unlike the bridge slide, the swing makes you second guess for a minute and requires you to be more daring but it’s worth the thrill.

How Is It Done ?

This activity starts off at the Victoria Falls Bridge. You will be strapped onto a harness that is attached to a rope which you will swing from. The rope will be attached to a cable that runs across the gorge. When you are ready, you will stand right at the edge, say a quick prayer and free fall for 80 meters towards the river before you swing back and forth like a human pendulum in mid-air.

How Many People Can Go At A Time ?

Just like the Bridge Slide, you can choose to go alone or grab a friend to share the thrill and screams with.

Age & Weight Restrictions For Bridge Swing

The minimum age for this activity is 14 years and all children below the age of 18 years should have written approval of a parent or guardian. For safety reasons, there is weight restriction, the minimum being 40kilograms and the maximum 160 Kilograms.

What You Need To Know ?

The Operating Hours

The bridge is open between 9am and 5pm and you can do the activities during this time except for lunch time between 1 and 2pm when it will be closed. But it is closed for lunch.

How Do You Get There ?

The Victoria Falls Bridge Activities do not include transfers in the price you need to make your way to the bridge just a short drive or a 15-minute walk from town. Alternatively, there is a complimentary shuttle bus from Shearwater Café to the bridge. It’s important however to check in advance whether the shuttle will be available on the day you do your activity.

What To Bring ?

You need to bring your passport as the activity takes place between the borders of Zimbabwe and Zambia. You also need your booking voucher to confirm you are going for a bridge activity.

Are There Weather Restrictions ?

Jumping is stopped during rainfalls and storms to protect the cords and equipment but other than that Victoria Falls Weather is very conducive for bridge activities.

What About Videos And Pictures ?

Your entire activity will be filmed and captured on video for you but is available at an extra cost.

The Victoria Falls Bridge Activities are arguably worth considering while taking Victoria Falls Tours. They are some of the unique adrenaline Victoria Falls Activities that are not only wild and daring but give you a sense of achievement after you do them.
