Bungee jumping really does allow you to understand what it feels like to leap from the highest point you can find, but without the nasty bump at the end.

The bump is, in fact, replaced by a thrilling, stomach-deserting rush up and down at the end of an elastic bungee cord, and it is preceded by an equally exciting period of freefall.

The highest bungee jump available commercially (for amateurs and who do not have their own equipment) tops 111m, which provides five seconds of unadulterated freefall. Be sure to keep your eyes wide open, though, because this jump is from the middle of Victoria Falls Bridge, which arches magnificently across the mighty Zambezi between towering, tree-clad cliffs and provides a jaw-dropping view of the falls themselves.
