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.

Didn't do this as it was rather pricey. Would have liked to. Around $120. It seemed all the touristy things were expensive. There really wasn't anything else to do.

We did a couple of activities with wild horizon company and we can definitely recommend them. The zip line is great to do with your son as a tandem jump. Lots to laugh and chat about afterwards.

This was a fun activity, but be warned, it is NOT gentle. You free fall and when the rope reaches its end, it's not bouncy like I thought it would be. It's a very jerky end to a fall. You swing maybe 2 times across the river before they start hauling you up. When you get almost to the top,... More
