Face Adrenalin – Bungee Jumping

Bungi Jumping in the Garden Route

The Bloukrans Bungy is the world’s highest commercial bungy bridge.  It is also the highest commercial natural bungy jump in the World.  There have been a number of world records associated with Bloukrans.  In 2003, Bloukrans bungy was recognised as the world’s highest commercial bungy jump.

In 2008 it was part of two more world records.  Veronica Dean performed 19 bungy jumps in one hour and Bill Boshoff performed 101 jumps in a 24 hour period.  Bill's world record was subsequently surpassed but in 2011 Scott Hunty was again facilitated to regain the world record with 107 jumps in the 24 hour period.

The Bloukrans Bridge is 216 meters (709 feet) above the Bloukrans River.  The bungy jump operations are open 365 days of the year during all weather conditions (except gale force winds)
The primary focus is on maintaining the highest quality safety standards on all operations so that bungy jumping can be experienced and enjoyed by all.  All operations are covered by comprehensive public liability.

The current cost is R790 for a jump, and this will increase from the 1st November 2014 to R850 per jump. A walk to the launch area is R100.
Bookings should be made 48 hours in advance, but they will try to assist with late bookings.
