The high wire activities in Victoria Falls have generally been reserved for those adrenaline junkies seeking an absolute thrill in the gorges below Victoria Falls. However, this activity, which launched in June 2013, is not just for those thrill seekers but for anyone looking for a bit of an adventure.
The network of slides, trails and rope bridge walkways within the canopy of the hardwood forest of the Zambezi gorges offers amazing views of the turbulent rapids, the Victoria Falls Bridge and spray of the Falls. This unique experience is suitable for adventure seekers of all ages including families and groups.
Observe the riverine forest from a variety of different vantage points – from above, below and within the canopy itself. Experience forest birdlife, which can include the Knysna and Purple crested Turaco (Lourie) and Peregrine Falcons.
The Vic Falls Canopy Tour consists of 9 different slides, varying in length (with the longest being approximately 85m and the shortest being 40m) and 1 cable bridge walkway. The friendly and experienced staff will give you a detailed safety briefing before the canopy tour, taking you step by step through your upcoming adventure. There will be two guides on each tour.
The activity duration is 2 to 2.5 hours. A minimum of two guests needs to be booked to confirm a departure. If you are a single traveller, please chat to our reservations team and they will let you know when there is a confirmed departure that you can join. The tours operate with a maximum of 8 guests per trip. Bigger groups can be accommodated on request. To ensure a private trip, we need to charge for a minimum of 6 guests.
