They picked us up at around 2:30 for the 5 minute drive. Our first site was "the gorge". This was about 1/2 mile downriver from Victoria Falls. What we signed up for was a gorge Swing not a zip line.

      ... polish guys who spoke no English. We did a few practice runs and one of the Polish guys lost his gopro when he got pulled back into the boat.

      ... anything sweet and tasty was left anywhere I would have to immediately go an eat it.
