Adventure tourism at Victoria Falls

Has anyone done any of the adventure-type activities at or near Victoria Falls (such as abseiling, gorge swinging, high wiring, bungi jumping, etc.)? I plan to take a helicopter ride over the falls, but am wondering if I should also consider any of the above activities. Is it worth the money? How is the safety record? Any comment is appreciated. Thanks!!

I did the bungi jump and it was honestly worth every penny! There was an offer on when I did it, it was only $50 instead of the usual $90, and if you bought the video for $40, you got a second free jump! That was about a year ago though, so it has probably changed since then, but i would have paid full price for it. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and I'm so glad i didn't chicken out of it, i'll remember it forever. Do it!!!

I'm not brave enough for the bungi jump, but I saw that you want to do the helicopter over the Falls. Instead, I highly recommend the microlight flight. The 15-min. flight was $77 (Feb. 2005), or you could do a 30 min. flight (don't know the price on that). There is a wing-mounted camera and you can either bring a roll of film and pay $5, or for $10 they give you a roll of film (24 Exp.). The pilot will take pictures during your flight. You get your roll of film that you take home for development. I find it way cool to have pictures of me on the microlight with Victoria Falls in the background! (Get the photo CD so you can share your pictures with friends.)
