Victoria Falls is definitely Africa’s Adrenaline Capital. If you like adventure, you are going to love a visit to Vic Falls in Zambia. We spent 3 days at the falls and we filled it with not stop thrills from start to finish.
Victoria Falls is definitely the number one place in Africa for adrenaline adventure. Everyone knows about the bungee jump off of the bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe, but there is an even more exciting leap in the area for true thrill seekers. As seen on the Amazing Race, the Gorge Swing will get your blood pumping. Your day starts with a 55-meter (160 ft) abseil down the cliff into Batoka Gorge. After you a tough climb back up, prepare to soar over the gorge on a zip line. As you stare into the depths below you are pulled back to safety only to do it all over again. After two jumps, you are now more than ready for the final activity of the day.
The Gorge Swing is a bungee jump with a twist. You step off of the edge of a cliff and freefall to the bottom, but once the line tightens, it whips you across to the other side of the gorge at 120km (75 miles) per hour. The 55m free-fall is a thrill, but it is the abrupt snap at the end that takes your breath away.
At the bargain price of $90, you are allowed two jumps so you can fall back into the gorge for your first jump and then once you have built up the nerve you can jump face first on the second. It is a thrill like no other.

I didn’t want to do it. I looked for every excuse leading up and during to our voyage to Antarctica trying to justify why it would be ok if I didn’t take the Polar Plunge.
I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
