What to Expect
Before the slack of your bungee rope stretches out, you’ll experience a blissful four seconds of free-fall. Experience the sensation of flying as you reach speeds up to 120km/h. Ankle and body harnesses are attached separately to each adrenaline junkie, and after jumping you’ll be winched slowly back onto the bridge. Photographs and video are taken of each jumper and are available for purchase to ensure every moment is captured. The jump is available all year round for adventurers over the age of 14 years of age. No special equipment needed, just bring yourself and your brave face.
For those not brave enough to attempt the vertical drop, there is also the option of a bridge swing instead. The bridge swing free-fall lasts for about 70 metres before the rope catches, and the jumper sails over the Zambezi in an elegant arc. The bridge swing is also available in tandem, and is bound to leave a smile on your face.
Pop into the Bridge Cafe for a tasty meal or refreshing drink after it’s all over. With an authentic thatched roof and expansive wooden deck, it’s a great place to unwind after this thrilling activity.
