Have you ever looked up into the sky and thought that you would love to be able to fly like a bird! Glide through gorges or swoop down over the river. Well this no longer needs be a fanciful dream.
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!
Bridge Slide: You glide 300 metres from a platform over the rapids in the Batoka Gorge below affording incomparable views of the Victoria Falls before gently coming to rest on the Zimbabwean side of the bridge.
Flying Fox: You get clipped into a harness which 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 Foofie slide and Gorge swing, but I promise you this is still a thrilling experience, and requires great courage.
Foofie Slide or Zip Line: 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 down hill 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 flying fox.
Bridge Swing: Step off the Victoria Falls Bridge into the Batoka Gorge over the mighty Zambezi River in an upright position for an 80 metre freefall then become a human pendulum as you swing in a huge arc with the cascading waterfall rumbling by your side. If you do not want to step into the void alone, take a partner with you and scream together as the rush of adrenalin surges through your body.
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 afterwards.
