If you are visiting Zambia, you must go on the world’s greatest bungee jump, the famous Victoria Falls Bridge. Feel four seconds of freefall and 111 meters of pure adrenalin! Doing a massive bungee jump was always something to tick off of our bucket list and we figured that we couldn’t miss the chance of doing this iconic jump in Victoria Falls!

The process of the Bungee Jump at Victoria Falls
If you are not staying at either of the two hotels (Avani or The Royal Livingstone), you will have to take a taxi to the venue to the bridge that you jump from, passport pass formalities and register. You then get weighed, then sign the standard liability waiver stating explicitly that any injuries/death are on you and you alone. Classic!
When you get prepped for the bungee, you sit and watch as a guy wraps towels (Yes people, TOWELS) around each of your legs. Then he wraps a bigger one around both your legs before tightening the bungee strap above the ankles. Finally, you will be attached a 2nd safety rope at your waist. You then casually sort of bunny hop to the edge and wait for your cue and Jump! Our advice would be to not look down, but I obviously did look down and questioned myself why I did it haha! It was such an exhilarating moment and I enjoyed every bit of it! As for Mitch, he is kind of not a fan of heights, did it anyway and obviously felt like crap the rest of the day. It was a great feeling, but his body didn’t feel like that hit! Probably didn’t help that after the jump, he twirled so much! At least, it is out of the way now! You definitely need to do it whether you are scared of heights or now, it is a bucket list activity to do and it would be great for you to face your fears like Mitch did!
