Johannesburg, South Africa

Things to do in Soweto, Johannesburg South Africa. Well, there is a myriad of options from guided tours to bicycle excursions, but the one I would like to share with you today is Bungee jumping from the Orlando Cooling Towers in Orlando Soweto. The old cooling towers have been converted into a full blown extreme sports venue that offers a range of death defying sporting options that include:

  • Bungee Jumping
  • Power Swing
  • Internal Swing (inside one of the cooling towers)
  • Abseil
  • Viewing from a viewing tower

The venue does not only leave you breathless with the superb view and chance to fall through the air, they also give you the opportunity to savor the local cuisine and eat with your hands like the locals do. The food and drink is very cheap, so all and all an experience not to be missed.

History

Orlando Towers (Pty) Ltd was established in 2007 by Skyriders (Pty) Ltd, with the concept of developing the disused Orlando cooling towers in Soweto into a vertical adventure facility and tourist attraction for Soweto.

Aimed at drawing local Gauteng adventure enthusiasts as well as adventure tourists to the site of the Orlando Towers, it also feeds a large number of people into Soweto, which is now becoming one of South Africa’s most popular tourist attractions.
