Victoria Falls gay tour - Devil's Pool

 

Victoria Falls
Devil’s Pool & Livingstone Island
November 11, 2023
$230 Per Person (may combine with zip line, canopy and gorge swing)

Livingstone Island is a 5-8 minutes boat ride from the Royal Livingstone Hotel and is located in the middle of the Zambezi River, touching the lip of the Victoria Falls, where the water thunders down the 103m (338 foot) drop. Access to this unique Island is seasonal and depends entirely on the water level in the Zambezi River. All visits to the island are during the ‘low water’ season, which usually begins in mid July and goes through to the end of January.

The trip includes a short guided tour of the island, an incredible view from the lip the Victoria Falls, a dip in Devil’s Pool and an al fresco breakfast.

 

Victoria Falls gay tour - Devil's Pool

 

Victoria Falls
Zipline
November 11, 2023
$78 Per Person (may combine with Devil’s Pool, canopy and gorge swing)

Not for the feint of heart, this is the longest zip line ride in the world, and such an incredible experience that you can’t help wishing it could be longer.

The cable, which is suspended across 425 meters, (1,394 feet) plunges between the lips of the gorge and up the other side in an enormous U shape. A safety guide will gently ease you off the platform so that you sit in the harness and let your legs dangle over the raging river. It is a moment of intense anticipation and expectation. Then, your guide will count you down to one of the most memorable adventures of your life. When your harness is released, you will whiz through the air at 106 km per hour (66 mph). As you pick up speed, the world becomes a green and blue blur, while every cell in your body screams with excitement.

 

Victoria Falls gay tour - Gorge Swing

 

Victoria Falls
Gorge Swing
November 11, 2023
$96 Per Person (may combine with zip line, Devil’s Pool, and canopy tour)

This is only for the bravest among us with absolutely no fear of heights and is akin to bungee jumping.

It is amazing how the things that make our hearts skip a beat, are the things that make us feel most alive. If you have done the gorge swing, you know this better than anyone. The moment you find yourself on a wooden platform that peers into the chasm of the gorge, is the moment you realize that fear doesn’t shut you down; it wakes you up. The gorge swing is a 70 meter (230 foot) free fall that ends with an almighty swing 120 meters (394 feet) above the powerful Zambezi river.

 

Victoria Falls gay tour - Canopy

 

Victoria Falls
Canopy Tour
November 11, 2023
$60 Per Person (may combine with zip line, Devil’s Pool and gorge swing)

The canopy offers amazing views of Zambezi rapids, Victoria Falls Bridge & the spray of the Falls. Observe the forest from a variety of different vantage points – from above, below and within the canopy itself. Experience forest bird-life, which can include the Knysna and Purple crested Turaco (Lourie) and Peregrine Falcons. This tour offers a network of slides, trails and rope bridge walkways within the canopy of the hardwood forest of the Zambezi gorges.
