Activity description

Imagine swinging on a child's swing in the playground...now imagine a giant swing 95m long and 120m high above water...now imagine a 70m free fall before you begin swinging. Stop imagining and test your courage!

Take a jump on the world's first commercial gorge swing operation featured on the first series of the TV Show “Amazing Race”. This is truly a must do pit stop on your trip to Victoria Falls and experience first hand, what the contestants had to conquer to get their next clue.

The gorge swing has a 100% safety record and will give you that ultimate adrenaline fix. This will easily be one of the most memorable highlights of your trip, if not your life. The guides will carefully walk you through the safety procedures and put on your harness for the ultimate adrenaline kick of your life, reaching speeds of up to 180km/hr in a few seconds.

The gorge swing is suspended across the gorge at a point where the width is 316m and 120m deep. A harness is attached to the jumper and then the jumping ropes, the other end of which is pivoted to the middle of the cable. The jumper leaps off the edge of the gorge, free falling about 70m before going into a 95m long pendulum type swing.
