What a day! I chose the full day package which provides exceptional value on the adrenalin-o-meter. Managed to abseil facing back and front, fly the fox 5 times (slide like superman along a cable set up 100m above the gorge) and jump off the cliff in a 50m+ freefall+swing 3 times. The package also included a filling lunch (fries & chicken and a almost-greek-salad), plenty of water and a couple of sodas.
When it comes to the main attraction of free falling I did it 3 times without hesitation, don't think and its easier to take the step. You are attached to both main ropes and a security backup rope and it feels safe. However even after 3 times it stills feel incredibly unnatural to jump of a cliff, decide for yourself beforehand if you want to do it then do it, don't watch and overthink it then panic will set in. And do hold tight to the yellow rope that you are given, I let it loose on the backward fall and snapped my back at the end of the free fall, not too bad but could have been.
Also note that for the flying fox you'll be reeled back in, for the abseil and gorge swing be prepared for a 10-15min hike up the gorge on uneven rocky path.
I almost had more fun watching a few others do it, it looks more dramatic from the top seeing someone drop 50m+, it was also hilarious hearing some local Zambian girls screaming their head off on the relatively more docile flying fox. As the incredibly experienced main guide Kulu (ask him about rafting on 4 continents!) says: Happy days! (right before he "throws" you off the cliff).
