Gorge Swing

Gorge Swing is an insane activity which involves a free-fall from the Victoria Falls Bridge by one or two people at a time. After check-in, you go to the middle of the bridge where the jump operators will give you your safety talk and strap you in.

Imagine falling 70 meters from the sky in zero gravity while experiencing the wind on your face and the rush of blood to your head. Below you are heading straight into the Batoka Gorge and the raging rapids of the mighty Zambezi River. The feeling of flying and swinging in the air surrounded by pure nature is unmatched and cannot be explained in words but must be experienced during Victoria Falls Tour.

Victoria Falls Bridge Activities do not include transfers in the price (except the historic tour and packaged activities), so you can either book a seat on the Bridge Bus / Bungee Bus, or make your own way down to the Victoria Falls Bridge. When you get there, you will check-in at the Bridge Cafe where your weight will be recorded. Once you have registered and signed the indemnity form, there's no going back. After that, you will be directed to get fitted and harnessed.

What is the Gorge Swing ?

The Gorge Swing is one of the most thrilling things you can do during Victoria Falls Tours. This canyon activity loaded with adventure, is similar to the bridge swing. Instead of hanging from the Victoria Falls Bridge, you will freefall from the gorge's edge toward the Zambezi River before you are caught gently by the rope and swing back and forth in midair.

Why do the Gorge Swing ?

  • It is higher than the bungee jump hence provides more thrill
  • It provides a better opportunity to appreciate the gorge's grandeur when you reach the bottom.
  • Jumpers can opt to perform the gorge swing while standing, while moving backward, or, for the most courageous, while in a handstand while upside down.
  • It is an adventure filled activity suitable for dare devils and fun enthusiasts.
  • You get to see Victoria Falls in a unique way.

Where does it take place ?

The Gorge Swing Victoria Falls takes place at the edge of the gorge between the Victoria Falls Hotel and the Victoria Falls Bridge. You will be taken to the "Look-Out," café where you will receive a thorough briefing about safety, what to do and what to expect. You will check-in, sign an indemnity and enjoy refreshments on this cozy thatched platform with a magnificent view before and after your Victoria Falls Activity.
