Fly­ing Fox

You wear a har­ness con­nected to a steel ca­ble and “fly” across the 200 m-wide Ba­toka Gorge. You’ll be re­quired to run from the back of the wooden plat­form to gain some mo­men­tum.

When you reach the end of the plat­form, stretch out your arms and soar through the air – like a fly­ing fox! The Zam­bezi River is 120 m be­low. Rate: US$42 per per­son (R600). Con­tact: 00 263 13 44571;

Zi­pline

The zi­pline (also over Ba­toka Gorge) is 425 m long. You’re strapped into a har­ness and onto the line. As you slide, you’ll reach speeds of up to 106 km/h. The more you weigh, the fur­ther you’ll go. You’ll even­tu­ally start to lose mo­men­tum.

When you fi­nally come to a stand­still, the guides will reel you back to the start­ing point. Rate: US$69 per per­son (R980). Con­tact: 00 263 13 44571;
