Pictures Govt Officially Opens ” Mutarazi Falls

MINISTER of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality, Prisca Mupfumira, on Friday officially opened the Mutarazi Falls Sky Walk and Zip line in Honde Valley, Manicaland Province.

Known as a place for adrenalin fanatics, the 762 metres high Mutarazi Falls is Zimbabwe’s highest waterfall, obscuring even the mighty Victoria Falls and second highest in Africa after the Tugela Falls in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

“After my experience on the skywalk , I can confidently market Zimbabwe with my testimony of adventure tourism. As you noticed last month we had the Chinese tourists and we are planning on bringing them to Mutarazi since we will be receiving such groups every month.

“We have so many God given natural resources which many thought was for the international traveller but now we are encouraging the domestic tourist to take part in sampling the products”, said Senator Mupfumira.

The Sky Walk and Zip Line is a brainchild of a local investor ,Bernard Craig under his company Far and Wide. The Sky Walk is exceptionally made up of two bridges, the first one being 30m that takes you over part of the Falls and the other  90m that is above the entire Falls.  The two suspension bridges are designed to allow for a full panoramic view of the Mutarazi Falls .

The Sky Line depending on the day, ,one may find themselves flying through clouds or crystal-clear skies over the 2nd highest waterfall in Africa.

As Hunter Thompson articulates, “anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.”

The sense of adventure at Mutarazi allows you to connect to the natural world, waterfalls and the blue skies with adrenaline pumping through your veins.
