Welcome to Vanuatu Jungle Zipline
Six ziplines, two suspension bridges, 200 meter long zipline 80 meters above the canyon and finish across the secret waterfall!
CYCLONE PAM UPDATE
Its been 5 weeks since cyclone Pam now and we have been back in operation for about 3 weeks. We were lucky to escape with very minimal damages and were able to re-open quite quickly. We have had 3 cruiseships in town and some hotel guests since re-opening and are happy to report that all is going well and everyone is still very much enjoying the tour. The jungle is growing amazingly quickly and its quite green again already. There are lots of flowers springing up and more birds now that the jungle has more light into it. Unfortunately, the Summit Gardens did not fare so well and the Garden is closed until further notice. But the views are still amazing and its a pretty place for a walk for those that prefer their feet on the ground and for those more adventurous we have booth zipline courses running.
We will also shortly be re-opening our abseilling down to our waterfall so please stand by for an update.
Think of Vanuatu and come to visit! The country's major earner is tourism and the people of Vanuatu rely on you for their employment. Its amazing how quickly Port Vila is bouncing back. The clean up is nearly done and the township of Port Vila looks good again. And the local people are so resilient, and even after losing so much they are still smiling!
Soar through the jungle canopy and experience a fantastic buzz while on 6 ziplines and 2 suspension bridges. Zip platform to platform high in the trees and enjoy breathtaking views overlooking the ridgeline down to Mele Bay. Wobble across the suspension bridge and fly across our 80 meter canyon and back over the top of our seasonal waterfall. Designed for participants of average mobility and strength who are in reasonably good health. Ages 4 to 89. Weight restriction 130kgs. Its fantastic fun set in a beautiful location!
NEW BIG ZIP TREK
Our NEW addition, the Big Zip Trek officially opened on September 1, 2014. While the original zipline is a high in the trees canopy tour, this new Zipline starts on the ground, traversing back and forth across the expansive ravines. There is more trekking on this zipline, but no stairs and it is a whopping 1.3km long. With 7 long ziplines and the big Gravity Canyon, its a huge adrenalin rush.
HELI-ZIPLINE COMBO TOUR
What a rush! Start the tour with a 15 minute approx. fast paced flight up and down a jungle canyon before arriving in pure style at the Zipline. This tour gives you an amazing and different view of the city, the coastline and the surrounding plantations. Landing at the beautiful Summit Gardens, you get rigged up and start the next part of your adrenalin filled adventure ziplining through the canopy and across the canyon. After the zipline we return you back to the start of the tour at Nambawan Cafe by 4WD or we can drop you along the route to one of a number of locations.
How Do I Get There?
We have a free transfer and pick up from most major hotels downtown and from our Ticketbooth at Nambawan Cafe (No.1) on the seafront in town next to Vanuatu Helicopters and Big Blue Dive. We do pickups at 10am and 1:15pm and return approximately 2.5 to 3 hours later. Otherwise catch a local bus or taxi to The Summit Gardens on Devil's Point Road in Mele Bay.
What If I Am Off a Cruiseship?
If you are on the P&O cruiseline: Pacific Jewel, Pacific Dawn, Pacific Pearl, Carnival Spirit or the Holland America Line: Oosterdam, Volendam or Amsterdam or Rhapsody or Radiance we are now sold on the ship. Please see the excursions desk onboard to book our tour. The tour desk will reserve your spot and we will pick you up directly at the ship at the following tour times: 8:45am, 10:15am or 11:45pm and return you to the ship.
If you are on another cruiseliner then:
Take a taxi or bus from the cruiseship wharf the 4kms to town to Nambawan (No1) Cafe where you will see our ticket booth. We depart at 10am and 1:15pm from the ticket booth to the zipline. Don't forget to book in! We can drop you back either at the Ticket Booth, near to the cruiseship or to any other attraction/tour along the route back. We suggest a swim at Cascade Waterfalls, jetskiing/zorbing at The Beach Bar or snorkelling at Hideaway Island after the zipline. There are taxis and buses waiting to take cruiseship passengers back to the ship throughout the day from these spots. There is plenty of time to do both the zipline and an afternoon activity and make it back to the ship by departure time. Alternatively, hire a taxi/bus from the wharf to drive your party around for the entire day and drive up to the Summit Gardens.
What to Bring?
Suitable clothing to wear a harness and closed secure footwear. Bring your camera and a glasses strap if you have prescription glasses. If you are taking photos with your iphone it is handy to travel with a case and lanyard that you can hang around your neck so it doesn't drop. Swimmers/bathingsuit if you are getting dropped at Cascades or Hideaway.
What If We All Don't Want to Zipline?
Not to worry, the Summit is a beautiful spot and there is plenty to see for those not ziplining. Go for a jungle walk and take photos of your party on the zipline, (There is a AUD$15 or 1000 vatu return transfer fee for those not doing the zipline.)
If its raining, it does not matter! You can have fun on a Zipline in any weather.
Your Safety Is Our Priority
From the beginning to the end of the Ziplines 800m later, you remain continuously connected to the safety line. No unclipping at all. We call it a continuous belay and it means you are SAFE...
