Victoria Falls Bridge Swing

Step off the Victoria Falls Bridge into the Batoka Gorge over the mighty Zambezi River in an upright position for an 80 metre freefall then become a human pendulum as you swing in a huge arc with the cascading waterfall rumbling by your side

Solo bridge swing off the Victoria Falls Bridge

Your harness is attached to a rope, the rope is attached to the middle of a cable that runs across the full width of the gorge.

Once you are all set, you stand on a platform on the edge of the Victoria Falls bridge, say a quick prayer and jump off - How crazy is that, you jump off and free fall for about 0m straight towards the rocks and river below, then as the rope becomes taught you will start to arc and thankfully swing away from the river you were hurtling towards fractions of a seconds ago. Although it looks like the most insane thing to do, everyone who does it, is on such a high afterwards.

With the bridge swing, you can go at it alone, or you can do it with a partner and scream together as you take the 80 meter plunge...then once you've swung through the gorge, take in the sight of the Batoka gorge and the mighty Zambezi river below while you both get pulled up to the Victoria Falls Bridge.

PLEASE NOTE: This activity is NOT suitable for persons who are either pregnant, epileptic, hypertensive or have a previous back injury.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
