Microlight flight over the Victoria Falls
A microlight flight provides a scenic flying adventure, you can feel the Falls’ spray on your face as you soar over its majesty in a microlight or view it from above in the slightly more sedate Batoka Gorge cable car.
White-water rafting on the Zambezi River
You can get up up close and personal with the might of the Zambezi around the Falls in a thrilling white-water rafting experience, steering your way through the powerful rapids under the supervision of experienced river guides.
Swimming at Devil’s Pool
Visit the historic Livingstone Island and have a swim at what feels like the edge of the world in the Devil’s Pool. Visitors to the pool often can’t see that the floor of the Falls is 350m down on the other side of the pool – the Falls are world-renowned as ‘the smoke that thunders’ for the rainbowed mist that rises after the water falls such a distance.
This activity begins with a spectacular scenic helicopter flight over the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls. The helicopter then swoops into the Gorge and lands at rapid 21, where a beautiful riverside spot with stunning views of the river and gorge await you. A beautifully prepared picnic lunch on the white beach at the edge of the Zambezi is a wonderful setting for a relaxing lunch. The ascent out of the gorge by helicopter is the perfect finale to a stunning midday excursion.
Take a leap of faith and jump off the Victoria Falls bridge. The 111-metre bungee not only gives an adrenaline rush but will also provide incredible scenic views of the Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River.
