The essence of the experience
Take on gravity in spectacular fashion by jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge. The 111 metre (354 foot) drop will ignite every sense and will leave your heart pumping and the blood echoing fiercely in your ears. The sound of your pounding heart will blend with the roar of the Zambezi River as it tumbles through the constricting Batoka Gorge below.
The bridge is a spectacular sight, spanning the second gorge and beautifully arched against the background of the Smoke that Thunders, the old name of Victoria Falls, a majestic 128 metres (420 feet) high and 198 metres (650 feet) long. The bridge acts as a road, railway and footway, being the exclusive railway tie between Zambia and Zimbabwe and one of only three roads connecting the two African countries.
As you stand on the bridge, expertly rigged, you cannot help but marvel at the magnificent and breathtaking scenery surrounding you. The roar of the Falls, coupled with the iridescent colour of the rainbows created in their spray, makes for a serene yet powerful atmosphere, spectacularly offsetting nature’s power and presence. Look down at the reinforced bungee cord tied around your ankles, listen carefully to the booming countdown and stretch out your arms as you plunge headlong into the depths of the gorge, towards the opaque waters of the Zambezi, the longest east-flowing river on the continent.
