Victoria Falls Canopy Tour & Highwire Activities
₤ 51 (Pps)
For years we have watched the falcons soar above our rafts and the kingfishers hover above our canoes. And for years we have looked up and wondered… imagine being a bird! The Canopy tour (along with various other flying adventures) brings you one step closer to this dream!
The Vic Falls Canopy Tour consists of nine different slides, varying in length (with the longest being approximately 85m and the shortest being 40m), plus an exciting cable bridge walkway in the middle. The friendly and experienced staff give you a detailed safety briefing before the canopy tour, taking you step by step through your upcoming adventure. There will be two guides on each tour.
Practicalities: The canopy tour takes approximately 2-2½ hours and operates with a maximum of 8 guests per trip. If you want to ensure a private trip, you have to pay for a minimum of 6 guests. The walk out of the gorge is only 50 meters and should take approximately 10 minutes.
The price above is for the Canopy Tour alone.
High Wire Adrenalin Activities
The Flying Fox
Picture taking a running jump into thin air over the chasm, soaring horizontally through the air over the turmoil of the Zambezi below. The gorge at this point is 200 metres wide and 120 metres deep. This is a great appetizer before you try the Zip Line and Gorge Swing.
The Zip Line (Foofie Slide)
Imagine the adrenalin rush travelling at a speed of 106 km’s hurtling 425m across the gorge, while suspended 120m above the breath-taking beauty of the Zambezi water below! As the river zigzags down the Batoka Gorges, the cable traverses across it from one side to the other. For this activity, you are harnessed and attached to a pulley, then launched over the edge picking up speed as you descend over the water and reaching a speed of 106 km/hour!
Envisage swinging in a child’s swing in the playground… then imagine a giant swing 95m long and 120m high above water. Now visualize a 70m free fall before you begin swinging. The highwire crosses the gorge at a point where the width is 316m and 120m deep. A harness is attached to you and then the jumping ropes, the other end of which is pivoted to the middle of the cable. You then leap off the edge of the gorge, free falling about 70m before going into a 95m long pendulum type swing.
Adrenalin Highwire Pass
