Cape Town – South African model, actress, and beauty pageant titleholder, Zozibini Tunzi has a strong fear of heights but was able to conquer it when she bravely ziplined over a waterfall.
Tunzi uploaded a video of her adventurous exploit onto her Instagram page.
Visibly terrified of the experience, she could be seen shaking as she prepared to zipline. Tunzi could then be heard screaming as she was let go to cross the waterfall by herself.
“Everyone who knows me knows I’m terrified of heights and falling,” she said in the caption of the post.
“When I was younger I didn’t want to go to theme parks to ride even the baby ones because that too was scary. I can’t believe I did this in actual life.”

She is the third woman from South Africa to win the title, and the first black woman since Angolan Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe 2011.
Following her win, Tunzi received prizes including R1 million, a new car, and a fully furnished apartment in the Sandton neighbourhood of Johannesburg, which is valued at R5 million, for her to use throughout her reign. The achievement allowed Tunzi to represent South Africa at the Miss Universe 2019 competition.
