The arched, 650-foot-long (198-meter) bridge sits 420 feet (128 meters) above the Zambezi River and connects Zimbabwe and Zambia. One of the best ways to experience the Victoria Falls Bridge is on a tram or steam train ride across the bridge. Many tours include dinner, wine tastings, and historical details about the bridge. Thrill-seekers can also get their fix by taking on the Gorge Swing, bungee jumping, or ziplining from the bridge. You can also view the bridge from above on a helicopter tour of the falls.
The Victoria Falls Bridge Slide is exciting and mildly adventurous but friendly for all ages from six years and up – either alone or with a friend. Beginning from a platform on the Zambian edge, the zipline glides 300 metres over the rapids in the Batoka Gorge below affording incomparable views of the Victoria Falls before gently coming to rest on the Zimbabwean side of the bridge.
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. If you do not want to step into the void alone, take a partner with you and scream together as the rush of adrenalin surges through your body. The Swing provides a bonus chance to absorb the beautiful scenery of the Batoka Gorge while you slowly get winched back to the platform.
