Bungee off the Victoria Falls Bridge - Zimbabwe/Zambia
About Victoria Falls Bungee Jumping
Surely jumping 111 meters off the Victoria Falls Bridge has to be one of the most challenging, terrifying, crazy things to do. I have not built up the courage yet but from all accounts.... It’s a must do.
Some say it's the best Bungee in the world...it’s not the highest, that honour goes to Macau Tower in China which is an incredible 233m. Maybe it is because of the backdrop of the Victoria Falls or maybe just the fact that you are free falling down towards the mighty Zambezi. Whatever it is, it is a massive adrenaline rush!!
Even famous people such as Ewan McGregor and Will Smith have taken the plunge.
There is only one company that operates the Bungee Jump on the Victoria Falls Bridge. They are affiliated to Shearwater in Zimbabwe.
First timers normally do a standard head first dive, but the more experienced try all sorts of flips, backflips and inward tucks, some even with a bicycle or kayak.
Pre-booked and paid bungee jumpers are entitled to a full refund up until they sign the indemnity form on the bridge and start to strap up, you are then past the point of no return.
Where to Eat
You might well be wondering if there is anywhere to get a nice cold drink and something to eat once you are on the bridge. With all that adrenaline and energy you will have worked up quite an appetite.
The Bridge Cafe is ideal, it's thatched and open air platform, overlooking the bridge, offers cool respite from the intense heat on the bridge plus it serves a fantastic burger.
