Outdoor activities: Bungee Jumping
Sustainable tourism rating:
Adrenaline seekers are familiar with bungee jumping but as you might already know with bungee every time is like the first time :).
Today on Surf on a leaf’s menu: the highest bridge bungee with Face Adrenalin at Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa.
216 meters high, 5 seconds of freefall and over 100 decibels shouting, you guess it, this is a lifetime memory!
Face Adrenalin are situated in the Garden Route region, one of the most beautiful regions of South Africa. Upon arrival to the site, you are welcomed by a team that has surprised us with its professionalism.
After you put on your harness, you will be accompanied to the bridge where all the fun begins. The walk is just breath taking as you see your feet advancing on a scrap of wire mesh that seems fragile and bends under your weight. LOVE IT!
If you pass the test, the jump is an easy task 🙂 you will cherish every second! You have my word! If you want to see and laugh at your scary face facing the cliffs underneath, you can purchase the video (forbidden to laugh watching mine ;).
We were impressed by the quality of the pics and videos taken during the jump. The staff helps you reach the starting point and if you suddenly become shy and hesitant you can always count on them to give you a hand…then once you have enjoyed the free fall they will come and bring you back. In one piece if you are lucky:).
Spotrotter’s advice: Put it on your bucket list while visiting South Africa.
If you have some time, don’t miss the hikes in the region and take a break at Nature Valley’s Beach.
The pros :
Professional team, high quality video and photos
Very reasonable prices compared to prices elsewhere in the world.
This is an activity that will stay in your memory for a lifetime.
This activity is dangerous (not that the elastic will break;)), but this activity is not recommended if you are pregnant or if you have knee problems or back problems (visit Face Adrenalin website for more information)
