Owner description: For years we have watched the Falcons soar above our rafts and the Kingfishers hover above our canoes and for years we have, along with millions of guests, looked up and wished the universal wish.......imagine being a bird! Wild Horizons brings this dream to life with activities that will simply blow you away! Nothing could bring you closer to what it must be like to fly...! GORGE SWING! "Zero Gravity" Imagine swinging in a child's swing in the playground...now imagine a giant swing 95m long and 120m high above water...now imagine a 70m free fall before you begin swinging. Stop imagining and test your courage! Our Gorge Swing is suspended across the gorge at a point where the width is 316m and 120m deep. A harness is attached to the jumper and then the jumping ropes, the other end of which is pivoted to the middle of the cable. The jumper leaps off the edge of the gorge, free falling about 70m before going into a 95m long pendulum type swing. THE ZIP LINE (FOOFIE SLIDE)! Experience the adrenalin rush traveling a speed of 106 km's hurtling 425m across the gorge, while suspended 120m above the breath taking beauty of the Zambezi water below! As the river zigzags down the Batoka Gorges, our cable is suspended across from one side to the other. For this product you are harnessed and attached to a pulley, then launched over the edge picking up speed as you descend over the water and reaching a speed of 106 km an hour. THE FLYING FOX! Take a running jump into thin air over the chasm, soaring horizontally through the air over the turmoil of the Zambezi below. The gorge at this point is 200 meters wide and 120 meters deep. This is a great appetizer before you try the Zip Line and Gorge Swing.

We used this company to take a day trip from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe to Chobe Game Reserve in Botswana and they were great. They picked us up promptly from our hotel in a very comfortable minibus and we had a very nice small group of people that we spent the day with. We were taken to a luxurious resort in the Chobe area of Botswana and everything ran seamlessly. They helped us with all of our paperwork to cross the borders and were extremely concerned with everyone being comfortable and enjoying themselves. In the morning they set up a game drive in the bush and the afternoon was a river tour. Our guides were interesting and fun. Between the two game drives we had a buffet lunch at the resort. We saw tons of animals (literally). I highly recommend this company and I am surprised that they have so few reviews.

Wild Horizons picked us up at the hotel drove us to Zambezi National Park and we spent more than two hours on an unexpected but certainly worthwhile trip through the park. We saw a number of animals and birds and this was a bonus to the full day canoeing. The guides were fantastic both informative and friendly. We launched on the upper part of the Zambezi (from Victoria Falls) and paddle through some mild rapids and around a couple of pods of hippos who were in the river. The boats are rubberized and a bit bulky compared to standard kayaks or canoes. Y ou use kayak paddles. Lunch was provided during a break. Company offered a number of adventures and we did 3 of them but certainly this trip was a very positive experience
