310 Parkway Avenue, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Flying over Victoria FallsThe Flying Fox is a straightaway line that leads out over the massive Victoria Falls Gorge. After I strapped into the harness, the instructor told me to run and jump off the edge of the cliff. Easy in theory, hard in practice. That last moment as I was running and about to leap out over the canyon was terrifying, but before I knew it I was flying across at record speed, the closest thing to feeling like a bird I’ve experienced. The flight only lasted a few seconds, but that feeling of freedom as the adrenalin pumped through my body was as exhilarating as anything I’ve ever done.
