gorge and finish right at the bottom, meaning you have to hike about 2km back uphill in scorching heat.
But it was the 70m free fall from the Victoria Falls gorge swing that had me feeling like a superhero.
A harness is attached to your middle and you are dropped down the rocky gorge towards the crocodile-infested Zambezi. The fall feels like an hour, but the whole thing is over in 2.5 seconds.
You re then left suspended in the air for five minutes to take in the surroundings. It’s an unbelievable experience.
But the best was yet to come. On the last morning before we left for Joburg, we made the trip to the falls. Nothing prepares you for such splendour.
They have been called the mighty Victoria Falls, but they are beyond mighty. Standing on that bridge and being soaked by the spray is a spiritual encounter. This is something everyone has to experience at least once.
And to think, it’s closer to Joburg than Cape Town.
