Adventurous Day trip: Our flying fox experience takes you over the Zambezi Gorge which separates Zimbabwe from Zambia. You will soar above the gorge, enjoy the views and take a relaxing “fly” on this experience.
Flying Fox Thrill: The gorge at this point is 200 meters wide and 120 meters deep. This is a great appetizer before you try the Zip Line and Gorge Swing. But, don’t get us wrong – this is still for the adventurous spirit and only recommended for those that are not bothered by heights. Flying above the Zambezi offers the perfect bird’s eye view of the rapids and the surrounding national park.
You get clipped into a harness which is attached to a pulley which then glides along an almost horizontal cable across the gorge 125m above the valley floor. This gives you the sensation of flying. It looks tame in comparison to the Foofie slide and Gorge swing, but we promise you this is still a thrilling experience, and requires great courage.
“Imagine 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 meters wide and 120 meters deep. This is a great appetizer before you try the Zip Line and Gorge Swing.”
