Types of Bungee Jump:
• If you are a first timer we recommend that you dive head first, bound at the ankles. This is the most common jump position and most natural feeling because it feels like diving into a swimming pool, except itís the mighty Zambezi River rumbling in the Batoka Gorge 111 meters.
• If you are looking for a bigger kick, speak to the jump master and ask if you qualify for an Ankle tied back flip; Elevator or Running star - not for first timers.
