Zip-lining in Zambia

People from all over the world visit the mighty beautiful Victoria Falls in Livingstone, Zambia. There are lots of activities to do and explore such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, Batoka gorge swing and many more, so make sure to choose what really interests you. The Zambian zip-line experience will give you great adrenaline rush, and certainly memories you will remember for the rest of your life. Its definitely a must for the ultimate adrenaline junkies!

Zip-lining offers some of the biggest thrills of any outdoor activity and can make an exciting addition to any trip itinerary. The world’s longest zip-line is suspended 425 metres across the Batoka Gorge and over 100 metres above the river below. Launched over the edge you'll accelerate to over 100 km/h as you speed across the gorge. As you swing back and forth you’ll see the mighty Victoria Falls Bridge stretching between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The zip-line has the distinction of being the second longest in Africa over the spectacular beauty of the Batoka Gorge below the breathtaking cascading waterfall. The slide takes you from Zambia to Zimbabwe at an incredible speed, so be sure to feast your eyes on the amazing sights as you are crossing!

Before you finally go for zip-lining, the instructor will take you through a full talk on safety and inform you about the surrounding area, you can also ask any questions that you may have. You will have to run off the cliff and dive head first out to the gorge, which of course will be super exciting for adrenaline junkies! This activity is perfect for the adventurous – the Victoria Falls Zip-line is still an exciting and fun-filled activity that is perfect for all ages, from the active elderly to young children. Smaller children are harnessed with their parents or guardians in a double harness so they can still experience this wonderful high wire adventure safely.

Users of zip-lines have means of stopping themselves at the end of the line, which include:

  • Friction created between the pulley against the cable
  • Using thick purpose-built leather gloves
  • A mat or netting at the lower end of the incline
  • A passive arrester system composed of springs, pulleys, counterweights, bungee cord, tire or other devices, which slows and then stops the trolley's motion

What you will need to bring:

  • Strong lace up shoes, which you will need as you walk out the gorge
  • Comfortable trousers or shorts
  • Comfortable, loose short or long sleeved shirt
  • Carry your camera, to have your zip-line moment captured!
