100m up, where the wind catches your hair and you suddenly get this uneasy feeling at the bottom of your stomach... this is where you'll get one of the craziest views out over Soweto and Johannesburg. A few deep breaths and a couple of safety checks later you're launching yourself into the open air for one of the most exhilarating experiences in your life!
The Orlando Towers Vertical Adventure Facility, offers a wide variety of extreme activities which include bungee jumping, a power swing from the sky bridge inbetween the towers, SCAD free falling inside one of the towers, abseiling, rock climbing on the outside of the cooling towers, paint balling, rap jumping and base jumping for the really crazy ones!
Once you've, gotten your adrenalin rush and you've finally reached the bottom, you can enjoy the yells and screams of your friends as you enjoy a nice cold beer at Chaf-Pozi which is located on the same property,

On the first day of my travels with Collette (http://www.gocollette.com/) we stopped to take a look at the towers that have become one of the main landmarks of Soweto.
Leave it to this bustling township and its myriad of emerging entrepreneurs to create the first bungee jump between decommissioned cooling towers!! Way to recycle an unused structure!
Open Fri, Sat, Sun – 10am until sunset
