Owner description: The original and ultimate thrill! The location is unbeatable – in front of the largest curtain of falling water in the world, at a World Heritage Site, set against the backdrop of one of the Seven Natural Wonders in the World and above the raging torrents and misty gorges of the mighty Zambezi River. Then 5-4-3-2-1 Bungee into the spray and rainbows below! Four seconds of freefall and 111 metres of pure adrenalin! Victoria Falls Bungee is the only place in the world you get to jump in “no-man’s land” and is consistently voted as one of the top five adrenalin experiences on the planet. For Bungee Jump Veterans, speak to your Jump Master and make it even wilder by doing an Ankle-Tied Back Flip or a Star Elevator Jump.

“Experience of a lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

On our second day in Vic Falls, I had pre-booked the bungi jump. I had my reservations as well due to things like the rope breaking, but I was quite impressed at how organised these guys were. You walk across the bridge over to the Zambian side and register at the resturant, and if you pre-booked, your name is already on the list. Then they number you and send you back to the bridge. Just be aware of the guys selling crap on the bridge, they try to haggle you, they aren't dangerous, but just say no from the get-go or they will not leave you alone. At the bridge, you wait abit for them to test the equipment, and again very organised, there were about 10 guys in orange t-shirts. One guys straps you in the harness, while the others prepare the jump for you. The guys are friendly and try to calm the nerves. The jump itself was scary at first, for me, but quite fun after the inital leap. I took the video and photo package as this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing.

“Truly Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The bungee jump experience itself was absolutely fantastic. Both my sister and I decided to try it for the first time, and this is really the perfect setting to give it a try.

My advice though would be to skip out on the swing and the slide. They lined up the bungee jump first, and by the time we'd gotten to the swing and the slide they just seemed so much less impressive.

“I cried. But well worth it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Such an amazing experience! We did three activities that day. The bungee, swing and slide. I would do them in that order because the build up before the bungee was insane!! The staff were so helpful and super friendly. We spent most of our day just chatting with the staff after our activities. You MUST bungee here!!
