I believe I can fly! An exhilarating experience. A gently glide over dramatic and beautiful scenery. I normally prefer to keep my feet firmly on the ground, I don't do theme parks or the like and usually avoid anything to do with heights too but I recommend this, it was amazing.

Average speed 120kmh, height 280 metres, length 2 kilometres.

Replace ‘head-high’ with 280 metres and the little wooden seat with two safety harnesses suspended from a huge steel cable, and you have the ProNutro Zip 2000, a 2000 metre-long zip line that allows you to soar far above the ground at speeds of up to 140kmph.

An added bonus is the positioning of the rider: instead of clinging on and perching precariously upright, you are suspended from two body harnesses on your front, so as long as you don’t look up, there’s nothing in the way of your free-flying experience. You can shoot across over a mile of South African scrubland scenery, arms outstretched, until you reach the end and have to climb down…
