“Bungee jumping Victoria Falls! I’ve been wanting to do this for like almost 20 years now, I’ve got high blood pressure though, they need to get me from being upside down, This is living! This is living right here!” he said in exhilaration from the adrenaline pumping jump. The statement is testament to how the star lives his life to the fullest. It is almost a re-enactment of one of his lines in the movie Hitch where he says “Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away” this seemed to be one of those breath-taking life moments for the humble star.

Will Smith has been on an African tour in the past few days with his family and has also been to Egypt, Tanzania, and Morocco in his private plane.
In April 2007, Newsweek called him “the most powerful actor in Hollywood”. Smith has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards, and has won four Grammy Awards.
In the late 1980s, Smith achieved modest fame as a rapper under the name The Fresh Prince. In 1990, his popularity increased dramatically when he starred in the popular television series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The show ran for six seasons (1990–96) on NBC and has been syndicated consistently on various networks since then.
After the series ended, Smith transitioned from television to the big screen, and ultimately starred in numerous blockbuster movies. He is the only actor to have eight consecutive films gross over $100 million in the domestic box office, eleven consecutive films gross over $150 million internationally, and eight consecutive films in which he starred that opened at the number one spot in the domestic box office tally.
Will Smith joins a list of other notable stars in the world of entertainment and politics who have also sampled the magic of the Victoria Falls. Professional wrestler, Shawn Michaels, movie star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the late pop icon Michael Jackson, RnB singer Joe Thomas and the legendary R Kelly have also visited the Victoria Falls and gone on game drives to see wild animals in their natural Habitat.
