Bungee jumping in Soweto YouTube
The Soweto Tour is offered as part of City Sightseeing Joburg’s fantastic . There is a 1-Day and 2-Day Combo Tour on offer. The 1-Day Combo Ticket is R400 (or R350.00 online) you get a one day ticket for the Red City Tour PLUS the 1-Day unique Soweto Tour. Now that is a bargain considering that fact that a private half day tour of Soweto alone could cost anything from R800.00 per person.

One of the top activities to do in Johannesburg is a visit to the Orlando Towers. Our Combo Deal for R400 covers the Bus Tour as well as the Soweto Tour with the SOWETOO hop on hop off taxi. You can catch the SOWETOO taxi at Gold Reef City (Stop 6).
Established in 2007, Orlando Towers Pty Ltd came up with the idea of developing the disused towers into a vertical adventure facility. Here you can bungee jump, swing and abseil off the towers. They also offer climbing facilities, paintball and a SCAD Free fall inside the tower.
There is so much to do at Orlando Towers that it might be difficult to decide immediately. I spent a Saturday observing all the activities on offer at Orlando Towers.
Alwyn getting strapped into his harness, he was going to do the Bungee Jump and SCAD Free Fall combo.

Inside the lift, you could feel Alwyn’s excitement
Once we got up to the top, these gentlemen took over. They did the final strapping of the harness and the bungee cord to the jumper. These guys are incredibly well trained and practically live on top of the tower. The staff are amazing, patient and experienced. In order to work there, you have to do all the jumps, so they know what they are doing.

The crew at the bottom are waiting there to help you down gently. Not only do you receive a certificate, but you can also have your entire jump documented by their in-house photographer and before you leave the towers you will receive a disc with all your photos.
Inside the tower is the SCAD Free fall jump. Here you fall from the cage onto the blue Suspended Catch Air Device.
