“Nice Walk ...Great View!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

WE stayed at the Cresta Sprayview hotel and took a cab ($5/cab) to the Bridge. Our intention was to walk over the bridge and take some pictures and see the Bungie jumpers jump. Crossing the bridge was uneventful, but you do need a passport.....DONOT HAVE THEM STAMP IT... just show the passport and you ask for a bridge pass and immigration will give you one and stamp that. DONT lose it for you need it to return back into Zimbabwe. Watching the Bungie jumpers up close ... well that is another story..they are nuts. has to be the biggest jump I have ever seen. Cost $135 at the bridge or $140 through a tour guide. There is a bridge tour you can book at hotels or with your travel guide that will take you to a visitors center on a level below the main level of the bridge and give you some history about the bridge but you will pay for that. The Bungie jumping is from the main deck!

ON the return we paid $3 (asked for $10) for a cab to take us to the market place.

“A nice walk to a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

It's a little ways, maybe 2 km from the falls car park. Get a nice view of the canyon and (maybe) somebody doing the bungee jump.

There are lots of people trying to sell you things. They're very friendly, but persistent. Just be polite, but understand you'll have to tell them no many times.

“Zim to Zam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I wasn't as impressed as some, as the view of the Falls isn't that good, but you do get to go from Zimbabwe to Zambize by just crossing the bridge, and I guess that's cool.

“Just a vew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We did not cross the bridge, but looked at it from the falls. I twas not a part of our tour. Although if time had permitted I would love to have crossed the bridge into Zambia if only for a cup of tea. That of course would have cost me two additional visas and two more pages in my passport.

“Nice view but not a place to jump!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The trip over the bridge is a great one, and easy, but I certainly did not avail myself of the bungee jumping! The folks selling local goods are sort of a pain but, hey, it is their job and they are lovely people with very nice crafts so we bought some!
