Zip Line In Victoria Falls

These High Wire activities like the bungee jump are for the total Adrenaline Junkie. The gorge swing especially is terrifying and why people pay to do it I am not quite sure, but they do...It will simply blow you away!

Basically, there are three main high wire activities...

Flying Fox:

You get clipped into a harness that 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 Foodie slide and Gorge swing, but I promise you this is still a thrilling experience and requires great courage.

Foodie Slide:

This is similar to the Flying Fox but here the cable is not horizontal it is at an extreme angle so once you let go you accelerate downhill at speeds of over 100km/h. It is extremely exhilarating and unbelievably fast. This can be done single or tandem. It is also twice the distance as a flying fox.

Gorge Swing:

Leave your stomach behind! This is only for the totally insane. Your harness is attached to a rope, the rope is attached to the middle of a cable that runs across the full width of the gorge.

Once you are all set, you stand on a platform on the edge of a sheer 120m cliff, say a quick prayer, and jump off - How crazy is that, you jump off and free fall for about 70m straight towards the rocks and river below, then as the rope becomes taught you will start to arc and thankfully swing away from the rocks you were hurtling towards fractions of a seconds ago.

Although it looks like the most insane thing to do, everyone who does it, is on such a high afterward.

Similar Activities The companies offering these awesome activities in Zimbabwe are extremely good and professional. Their standards of safety are exemplary, they use only the best equipment available, and strict records are kept as to how many times each rope, harness, etc have been used. The equipment is then replaced at the required intervals.

At the Victoria Falls Bridge (passport required), you will find the bungee, bridge slide, and bridge swing operated by Shearwater. Wild Horizons' operation is in the gorges a little further downriver (no passport required).

The pictures are shown here and the descriptions I have given are all for the Wild Horizons High Wire operation.

The Shearwater operation is slightly different in that it operates off the Victoria Falls Bridge so it doesn't have the Foofie slide, but it does have the swing, (called by them bridge swing) and slide like the flying fox (called by them a bridge slide) and of course it has the bonus of the Bungee Jump.
