Bound by the feet with an elastic cord, tourists jump into the void, falling over 100 meters. It is the highest bridge in the world for practicing this extreme sport.
Being an elastic cord, depending on how much tension it has, some intrepid divers may even reach the water.
Known locally as Mosi-oa-tunya, which means The Smoke that Thunders, the Victoria Falls are located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
This waterfall on the Zambezi river was declared a World Heritage Site in 1989.
The water spray rises like upside-down, and, depending on the time of year, can reach heights of up to 800 meters.
But visitors do not only come here to enjoy the view: on a section of the falls there is a steel bridge constructed in 1905 that is used for bungee-jumping.
Two different ways to enjoy this wonderful natural setting.
