Flying Fox

Vic Falls

Activity Description

Everyone dreams of having a superpower, and nine out of ten times their chosen superpower would be the ability to fly. With the Flying Fox, you can finally realize that dream. The adventure begins on a wooden platform, and with your heart racing and palms tingling, you can see the gaping mouth of the gorge and hear the roaring rapids below. With a harness secured, you take your first steps towards that feeling of flight. When your feet leave the platform, the harness turns you into “superman position”, so that you are horizontally suspended as you whiz through the air. Any fear you may have felt before is whipped away in the wind as you soar between the lips of the gorge above breath taking views. The gentle pace of the flying fox enables you to fully appreciate the vegetation that sprout from the cracks in the rock and climb up the black basalt. The sounds of the rapids churning below mingle with the calls of the birds that fly at what is now eye level. The Flying Fox is perfect for those who crave a breath taking view and the slightest adrenaline rush. This section of the gorge is 200 meters wide and 120 meters deep and more often than not, it whets your appetite for the faster, more thrilling high wire activities.
