 One of the craziest things my sons have ever wanted to do was to bungee jump off the bridge at Victoria Falls.  Even after hearing a few months ago that the bungee cord broke and someone fell to the water did not deter them.  I could hardly watch and I prayed the whole time!

 The first thing they did was to do the zip line across the gorge.

Freefall for close to 70 meters before you fly out over the rapids of the mighty Zambezi in a huge arc. This is a swing like few others, and one that will leave you grinning from ear to ear. What a thrill!

 1,2,3 Bungee!!  This is what they yell out and then Justin just lept off the platform like it was nothing!

 At 111 meters it is also one of the highest jumps in the world and the adrenaline rush is as wild as the river itself.

 The bungee was Justin's favorite of the 3 that he did.

There was no hesitation with either of the boys.

This was a very exciting day for Zach and Justin.  Although, I was scared the whole time to watch them do this terrifying thing, I am very proud of them both for accomplishing something as extreme as this.
