If you’re looking for an adventure that you can do together as a family, I really recommend Wild Horizon’s Canopy Tour. There’s a reason it’s our most popular activity. With two guides to help you, you glide in a group through the Zambezi gorge forest on a series of zip wires – nine of them altogether, and a cable bridge walkway – and the whole thing takes a couple of hours or a little bit longer.
Obviously, the main reason for doing it is that it’s good fun! But it’s also one of the activities where you have more time to enjoy the spectacular views of the gorge, the rapids on the Zambezi, the Victoria Falls Bridge, the spray from the waterfall… Plus you get to see the forest from every angle – above, below and in the middle of the canopy – so you might spot some of the birds that live there as well. Actually, when you’re sliding through the treetop it sometimes feels a little like being a bird, too.
I always enjoy doing the Canopy Tour, but my favourite part is slide number eight. At 85m, it’s the longest slide and also the highest, so the views from there are amazing.
Your journey will start with one of our UK team – someone like Adele, who's travelled extensively in Zimbabwe. They’ll shape your ideas into the trip of a lifetime. But they won't do it alone. They'll draw on the expertise of our contacts on the ground, connecting you to the people who'll make your holiday one you'll always remember – the ranger who can show you the best game viewing and fishing spots on the Zambezi, the guide who’ll introduce you to ‘moonbows’ at Victoria Falls and the locals who’ll share their dinner with you.
