The Lowveld is full of adventure highs, and Graskop’s gorge swing rates up there with the best of them.
Teetering on a tiny platform, with only a cable and a fellow adrenalin-junkie for company (if you go tandem) prepare to freefall 68m, plummeting 0-160km/h in three seconds, swinging out like a human pendulum across the gorge. The views are spectacular and so is the after-rush.
Get a double buzz and zip slide (a zip line is a high speed pulley that uses gravity to accelerate along a steel cable) across the gorge too. The locals call it ‘foefie sliding’ and it’s a ‘hang-on-for-dear-life’ ride down a wire suspended 80m high, and 130m across the gorge.
‘Fly’ at breakneck speed, wind screaming in your ears – a high octane burst of elation and an eye-full of the magnificent Graskop Falls are your reward.
