One, two, bungee! When you’re about to leap off the Bloukrans Bridge, you’re about to safely plunge 216m into the gorge below. As far as adrenalin rushes go, you don’t get much better than this. And the beautiful surrounds don’t hurt either.

Did you know?

The Bloukrans River forms the border between the provinces of the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape.

The Bloukrans Bridge, at 216m, is the highest commercial bridge bungee jump in the world and attracts adventure seekers from all over the globe. It’s found along the scenic Garden Route offering one of the most spectacular bungee jumps in South Africa, if not the world.

This slick, professional bungee operation is run by Face Adrenalin, a member of the Southern Africa Tourism Association. These specialists in South African bungee jumping put safety first with all equipment conforming to international standards and highly trained and experienced staff ensuring that you enjoy the jump of a lifetime.

While bungee jumping is the most popular adventure activity at the bridge, there are plenty of other rides, jumps and swings to try, including the newest addition to the Bloukrans bungee adventure menu: the thrilling 200m Flying Fox cable slide (known as a foofie slide in South Africa).

Another adrenalin option is a tour of the Bloukrans Bridge, the largest single span concrete arch bridge in the world. The tour takes you along a specially-designed catwalk to the top of the arch where you look out over the gorge to the mountains and the sea in the distance.

Your adventure doesn’t need to stop there. Around the area you can find tons of fun from Bloukrans Bridge to Storms River. Hiking, sea kayaking, diving, canopy tours, zip lining… it’s all here for you to explore. Don’t forget to stop in at Tsitsikamma National Park to complete your journey and discover why the Eastern Cape truly is one of our most picturesque provinces.
