JUMP OFF ORLANDO TOWERS, SOWETO

Highlights

The Orlando Towers bungee in Soweto adds a whole new dimension to sightseeing in this famous Johannesburg township. Bridging the gap between adventure and township tourism, you can enjoy one of Johannesburg’s most vibrant landmarks like never before. With 100m drop to the ground, bungee jump, swing or free fall your way to the bottom.

Why you'll love this

For starters, you now have the most awesome view of Soweto from the top of the towers. Then, of course, there's the adrenaline rush; never before could you enjoy such heart-pumping adventures in a genuine township setting.

A Soweto adventure experience includes the bungee jump, a tower swing (the world's first between two cooling towers), an internal tower swing and base jumping, all off the top of the west tower, some 100m up.

Once you're secured in your harness, an open-air lift transports you along the outside of the tower to a platform, 3m from the top. A quick walk along the floating staircase takes you to the tower's rim and to either the sky-bridge (between the two towers) for the bungee or the platform for the swing.

And then...you jump! The Soweto Bungee Jump sees you falling 33 storeys down, and the Power Swing offers a 40m freefall before the swing cables kick in. The ominously named Abyss, another world-first, is similar to the Power Swing but sees you jumping inside the tower, swinging across the width of its base. There's also a viewing platform for the slightly less adventurous.
