Victoria Falls Bunjee Jumping

Jumping 111 meters off the Victoria Falls Bridge has to be one of the most challenging, terrifying, crazy things to do. I have not built up the courage yet but from all accounts…. It’s a must do.

Some say it’s the best Bungee in the world…it’s not the highest, that honour goes to Macau Tower in China which is an incredible 233m. Maybe it is because of the backdrop of the Victoria Falls or maybe just the fact that you are free falling down towards the mighty Zambezi. Whatever it is, it is a massive adrenaline rush!!

Even famous people such as Ewan McGregor and Will Smith have taken the plunge.

There is only one company that operates the Bungee Jump on the Victoria Falls Bridge. They are affiliated to Shearwater in Zimbabwe.

First timers normally do a standard head first dive, but the more experienced try all sorts of flips, backflips and inward tucks, some even with a bicycle or kayak.

Pre-booked and paid bungee jumpers are entitled to a full refund up until they sign the indemnity form on the bridge and start to strap up, you are then past the point of no return.
