Victoria Falls bungee

Test the edge of fear – try the 110m bungee jump off the Victoria Fall bridge.

This collection of BigAir shots from Victoria Falls bungee (courtesy Trish Mambinge and Garth Flower), will wet your appetite. Bungee jumping started up in 1994 and then the Bridge Swing and the Bridge slide were introduced in 2005. Almost 150 000 clients have done this jump with over 30 specially trained crew members as back-up. There is an impeccable safety record bar one incident in 2011 when the rope snapped. The Australian female client survived the experience.

The minium age is 14yrs and the miniumum weight is 40kgs (maximum is 140kgs). Really none of this matters as much as the size of your addiction to adrenalin.

Do you need adrenalin or don’t you and how much turns you on. This jump will get you fixed for quite a while.

Your weight causes the rope to stretch up to three times its original length and you get to have at least two up and downs if not more. You’ll be winched back up to safety when you’ve settled in mid-air. You might even end up wishing that you’d done more than the Victoria Falls bungee and opted for the Big Air experience instead.

The Big Air Experience combined the bungee jump, bridge swing and bridge slide – three in one! You’ll get a special discount if you’re up for the whole package – as a sign of your bravery. Please oh please don’t opt for more than three in one on the same day. I’m not sure that the Zambezi team could handle that amount of adrenalin one day!

Bungee jumping

“5 – 4 – 3 – 2- 1 – B-U-N-G-E-E!!!!!!” The drop only takes 4 seconds. You’ll see the Zambezi in really widescreen mode.

It’s a leap of faith before freefalling for up to 70 metres before you fly out over the rapids of the Zambezi River in a huge arc
