About the Ride
This is one of the longest Zipline rides in the world. Imagine being swung across the gorge, what a rush traveling a speed of 106 km's hurtling for an adrenaline-fueled 425 meters over the scenic Victoria Falls river and Batoka Gorge while suspended 120 meters above Zambezi water bowl!
Double or tandem harnessing is available for parent and child or two adults.
All parents and guardians of children aged below the age of 16 must sign the liability release in order for their children to go ahead and zipline over the gorge.
Parental control over a child's behavior is of course important, so the management at Victoria Falls retains the right to turn anyone away from the zipline at their own discretion, should they feel that the situation is not one that is in the best interests of your safety.
The Wild Horizons team at Victoria Falls will be there to make sure you have the most amazing experience. They'll help with everything from getting your harness on, through a safety briefing and all that's needed for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
