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.
Bloukrans Bridge is easily accessed by road. It is situated on the N2, close to Plettenberg Bay, and is well sign-posted.
Among the country's prime wilderness areas, the Tsitsikamma is a heaven for those who enjoy outdoor activities and adventurous pursuits.
