Abseiling, Gorge, Swinging

The latest adventure activities to come to Livingstone and the sheer gorges around Victoria Falls are ideal for them.
The company, Abseil Zambia offers abseiling, gorge swinging, rap jump and cable swing experiences in the deep Batoka gorge.
A platform has been erected on top of the gorge, and the ropes are strung out from safety pegs which have been drilled into the rocks.
Abseiling – The helmeted client is attached to the main rope and safety rope from their harness. Then s/he is gently lowered over the platform. Slowly the rope is let out as the client makes their way down the rock face. Clients improve with each attempt and they can go down as often as time allows.
On reaching the base of the gorge the client has the choice of walking out or being hauled back up. The walk up has been designed as an integral part of the day’s activities. A gentle slope with plenty of rest stops has been chosen. It is a pretty walk, especially now that all the trees are in leaf.
High Wiring, Gorge Swinging and Rap Jumping – This is the world’s first commercial High Wire. A cable is spanned across the gorge 135m long and 75m above the ground. A full body harness is attached securely from your back to the cable and you take a running dive off the edge of the cliff. Soar across the deep gorge like a bird in flight.
It costs US$65 for about a full day of abseiling and high wiring, gorge swinging and rap jumping during which time you can have as many turns as you like.
