The Zip Line Victoria Falls is arguably the most common of all the highwire activities in Victoria Falls and a favourite for most travellers. For those that do not know what this is, from the name, just imagine the action made by a zipper on a jacket as you zip it down. This Victoria Falls Activities is similar to that as it lets you slide down a zip wire or cable in mid-air at about 106km to 110km per hour.
Ready for Zip Line Victoria Falls with Falcon Safaris ?
The Victoria Falls Zip Line is a highwire activity that is classified under gorge activities. It is similar to but not to be confused with the bridge slide. The difference between the two however, is the distance of the slide and where you are sliding from. With the gorge swing, you will be sliding across the gorge and the bridge slide, across the bridge.
For Zip Line Activity, to begin with, you will be firmly strapped into a harness which puts you in a sitting position. The harness will be attached to a pulley system on a cable line above which spans across the gorge. Once you are firmly strapped and your guide has checked everything, you will then be propelled on a sliding descent across the gorge with the wind in your face, the experience will have begun.
Like most of the highwire activities you can do the zip line on your own or go with someone else on the tandem zip line. On the tandem zip line, a parent and a child or two adults can be double harnessed and go at the same time to share the experience.
The Zipline is located in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, not far from The Lookout Café. The cost of the activity includes scheduled transports to the place from Vic Falls Town hotels and lodges. In the case that you wish to go own your own, be sure to let the operator know well in advance.
Safety when doing highwire activities is very crucial and because of that, you will attend a brief safety lecture before your zipline over the enormous Zambezi River. You will be advised on what to wear, how long it takes, and what to anticipate throughout your slide.
Instructions on what to do and how to utilize the equipment in case of an emergency will be provided to you. It is very important to always abide by these rules to ensure your safety. A guide however will be with you monitoring everything to ensure everything is in order.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
