Thanks so much to Louzel Lombard from Traveller 24 part of News24 for the Q&A session with our two cyclists, Gareth Pickering and Derrick Fourie, who bravely bungee jumped off Victoria Falls Bridge on Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycles. To read more about why Gareth & Derrick joined the Joburg2Kili for Qhubeka Expedition and what the highlights and low-lights of the trip have been so far, please click here.

The Joburg2Kili team have made it to Livingstone in Zambia where we are now spending two rest days to allow us to take advantage of all the great activities on offer in the area.
Whilst enjoying our rest day yesterday, the two cyclists, Derrick Fourie and Gareth Pickering, decided to take on a seemingly impossible challenge to bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge with their Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycles. Thanks so much to Shearwater Bungee for helping to make history! As far as we know they are the first people to ever bungee jump off a bridge on a single-speed, rigid, 20+kg bicycle! Check out these two videos of how it all went down:
Both Warrick Kernes (cyclist) & the team mascot Barney and Bobby Fuller (support crew member) also bungee jumped but with no bicycles.
