This nerve jarring activity is only for the brave and those who are used to the sudden rush of adrenalin. If you are the daredevil type, then you are in for one hell of a jump! Having booked your Gorge Swing activity and the convenient time you want to do it, you are then taken through the formalities and assessed for any health challenges. Other important details such as your weight and height are documented and filed away as well.
The staff has you properly rigged and ensures you have the necessary safety harness and gives you safety instructions and procedures. At this point, you are ready to take your place on the jumping platform, and once positioned correctly it’s time to fly (technically swing).
On the platform, you can feel the rush of wind off the Batoka Gorge and the beautiful Zambezi River looks unconcerned as it snakes its way right under you. Further ahead of you is the stunning and imposing landscape of Victoria Falls, set against the background of the dying African sun, in all its glory.
As you are trying very hard to steady your breath and to give your sweaty hands firm control over the rope, the crew starts the countdown 3, 2, 1………. and off you go letting out a loud scream. Words cannot describe your feelings as you enjoy the incredible scenes around you while the momentum of the rope dies out gradually. At the end a crew is lowered down to bring you up and instruct and guide you on what to do after your Victoria Falls Gorge Swing.
