Are you an adrenaline junkie? Do you live for a high-energy buzz coursing through your veins? Then let Zambia beckon you in with the promise of adventure. The backdrop of mountains await your arrival for an absolutely action packed time. Get yourself down to Victoria Falls, which is full to the brim with awesome activities to keep you busy for the whole day! Abseil down the side of a gorge or bungee jump off a bridge or swim at the very edge of the falls, whichever takes your fancy, do it! Zambia is fast becoming Africa’s most acclaimed adventure capital. There is always something to get your adrenaline pumping and make your trip an unforgettable experience.

White Water Rafting

Against a stunning river backdrop, immerse yourself into a sensational white water experience that is considered as the very best white water rafting in the world. If you are keen for the ultimate thrill then get yourself ready to face 23 electrifying rapids and get soaked! It’s truly a spine-tingling experience. The rapids on the Zambezi River are at the highest level of difficulty that any sane person should attempt. For some of you, a half day might just be enough, but if you’re feeling very brave then a full day awaits you.

Bungee Jumping

There is nothing more exhilarating than this. At 111 metres high, it is one of the highest bungee jumps in the world. Before you go for the plunge, take in the spectacular views all around you, then; 5-4-3-2-1, bungee! Take a leap of faith off the Victoria Falls Bridge and hurtle head first into the Zambezi River. How about a back flip off the bridge? Let the adrenaline flow through you as you freefall for 4 seconds. Before you know it, you’ll be back up where you started, with a feeling of elation overwhelming you.

Walk With Lions

Have you ever wanted to high five a lion? Well in Livingstone you can. It is amazing to be able to pet them, walk with them and call them by name! At one of Zambia’s highlights, feel your heart race as you get up close and personal with the king of the beasts. Join the unrestrained lions as they roam free in their natural environment and enjoy one of the most stimulating, unique and awe-inspiring experiences, which will give you memories to cherish forever.

Swim at Devil’s Pool

Come and plunge yourself into the world’s most dangerous infinity pool. Once you’ve jumped in, the fast current will whizz you towards the edge of the water fall. This heart stopping adventure combines fear with excitement as you dangle off the edge. Hear the roar of the water crashing on the rocks below and see some dazzling views.  Make sure to take your camera as you will see some pretty rainbows that are permanent at this natural world wonder. There is no better way to experience Victoria Falls than at Devils Pool. You won’t want to miss out on this hair raising opportunity of a lifetime.
