Bungee jump from Victoria Falls Bridge
Last October, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon visited Zambia as a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador. Sustainable tourism is a growth industry in Zambia, and the bungee jump from Victoria Falls Bridge is one of the most famous attractions.
Crown Prince Haakon did the jump with a camera in his hand.
- It was far down and quite scary, but all went well, The Crown Prince stated after the jump.
Sustainable tourism is a growth industry in Zambia, and there is enormous potential for ecotourism. After a guided tour of Victoria Falls Park, Crown Prince Haakon met with representatives of the Toka-Leya people, who are indigenous to the area surrounding the Falls. Their discussion centred around management of natural resources, distribution, and the integration of social, cultural and economic traditions in a modern Zambia.
UNDP plays a key role in promoting such integration as well as in advancing minorities interests in the shaping of policy and ongoing constitutional amendments.
Congratulations from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States of America.
