zambia - victoria falls adventure activities

Victoria Falls is rapidly becoming one of the Adventure Capitals of the world in a spectacular natural setting.

For over 20 years now it has been recognised for having the worlds greatest and hardest commercial White water rafting experience as well as the worlds highest fixed Bungee Jump from the Victoria falls bridge 111m down into the Batoka Gorge.

White water rafting

White Water Rafting Considered one of the best stretches of commercially run river in the world, Batoka Gorge provides one of the most intense sensory thrills imaginable. Its twenty three white water rapids and striking scenery deep within the sheer black cliffs afford the adrenaline junkie a wild roller coaster ride along a route carved over millennia by the Great Zambezi.

You have the opportunity to take it easy in grade one to four, or if you’re up to it, go hard in Grade Five Zambezi white water ! The frothing boiling water is what this River is really known for and what makes the new craze of River Surfing here such a blast, literally ! Charging into rapids with water crashing around you and punching out the other side to find yourself surfing will undoubtedly be one of your best ever adrenaline rushes - but only for the experienced !

Abseiling

The latest adventure activity to come to Livingstone is Abseiling and the sheer gorges around Victoria Falls are ideal for the adventurer or try high wire. A cable is spanned across the gorge 135m long and 75m above the ground. A full body harness is attached securely from your back to the cable and you take a running dive off the edge of the cliff. Soar across the deep gorge like a bird in flight. Jet boating in the turbulent rapids of the Batoka gorge - buzzing huge rock boulders is a real white knuckle ride more scary than any rollercoaster. Also Helicopter rides and Micro-light flights over the falls and through the Batoka Gorge provide awesome views and thrills - the Victoria Falls - truly one of the greatest 'Wonders of the World'.
