Where better to fuel your l’appel du vide (call of the void) other than over at the world’s highest bungee jumping site? Nestled in the fairytale landscape of the Garden Route, Bloukrans boasts a plummet that’s not only adrenaline-pumping, but breathtaking as well.

Power Swing, Orlando Towers in Soweto

This iconic Sowetan adventure is one to not overlook. Hosted between the two vibrant cooling towers of Soweto, this thrilling adventure allows you to jump and swing between its tattooed structures.

Big Swing, Moses Mabhida Stadium Durban

Make like a pendulum, or Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball, as you swing across the Moses Mabhida Stadium, which served as Durban’s host stadium during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The Wild Swing, Oribi Gorge

Dubbed the tallest swing of its kind in the world, this is undoubtedly a wild experience you won’t want to miss out on. Nestled in the plush environment of the Oribi Gorge area, you’ll be mesmerised by both the experience and the view.

Bungee Mogale, Krugersdorp

Operating off the Kings Kloof Bridge in Krugersdorp Mogale City, this bungee offers a nice taste of adrenaline and nature, not too far from the municipal life.
