OOne, 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 adrenaline rushes go, you don’t get much better than this. And the beautiful surroundings don’t hurt either.

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.
