All about the Flying Fox Victoria Falls.

Flying Fox – Victoria Falls Overview

Pre-Booked guests will picked up from hotels and lodges within Victoria Falls Town, and then taken to the edge of the Gorge between Victoria Falls Hotel and the Victoria Falls Bridge.

You will be fully briefed at the “Look-Out” located on the edge of the Gorge. This is a comfortable thatched platform with a spectacular view where you will check-in, sign an indemnity, and be given a briefing and refreshments.

The expectation starts to take hold as you stand on the wooden platform, and the guide is strapping you into your harness, you can see the river flowing down in the gorge and even hear the thunder of the flowing water.

Take a deep breath and step off the edge of the platform and the harness pulls you into a horizontal position and gives you the feeling of free flight with the amazing views below and along the walls of the gorge.

This is a perfect experience for those who still want a good adrenalin rush, but not quite ready to take on the more extreme Gorge Swing or Gorge Slide.
