Activity description

Dare to jump from Victoria Falls Bridge and experience 80 meters of pure adrenaline rush!

Step off the Victoria Falls Bridge into the Batoka Gorge over the mighty Zambezi River in an upright position for an 80-meter freefall then become a human pendulum as you swing in a huge arc with the cascading waterfall rumbling by your side!

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 the Victoria Falls bridge, say a quick prayer, and jump off - How crazy is that! You jump off and free fall for about 80m straight towards the rocks and river below, then as the rope becomes taught you will start to arc and thankfully swing away from the river 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.

With the bridge swing, you can go at it alone, or you can do it with a partner and scream together as you take the 80-meter plunge...then once you've swung through the gorge, take in the sight of the Batoka Gorge and the mighty Zambezi River below while you both get pulled up to the Victoria Falls Bridge.

Special terms

With prior notice, the team does its best to accommodate the special needs of physically challenged individuals.

Border formalities:
The Victoria Falls Bridge lies in "no man's land" between the Zimbabwean and Zambian Border Posts. Jumpers, sliders, swingers, spectators, etc. must indicate to the immigration officials that they are only proceeding onto the bridge and then returning through the same border post. Immigration officials will then issue a gate pass without stamping of the passport.

Sufficient time must be allowed to get from Vic Falls/Livingstone town to the border, through Customs & Immigration, then down to the bridge and up to the registration area to check-in. As such, clients should leave town ONE HOUR before their appointed jump time.

Client registration:
The registration area is set up adjacent to the bridge on the Zambian bank of the Zambezi River.  All clients are to proceed to the registration area prior to jumping/swinging/sliding.

Clients who have pre-booked and/or prepaid need to present their voucher at registration. The clients are screened, weighed, and registered for their product of choice. Registering includes signing an indemnity form, payment (or voucher presentation) and the recording of the payment transaction.

The jump/swing/slide number and weight are clearly written on the back of the client's hand.
