Kiwi Extreme introduced the concept of bungyjumping in South Africa in 1990. Operating full-time at the Gouritz River Bridge, they are now also available at the Bloukrans River Bridge, the highest commercial Bungy bridge jump available in the world.
Highly trained and professional crew ensure that safety is paramount and in addition to the primary connection to the ankle harness, jumpers are also strapped into a body harness with a separate attachment to the bungy system.
Every jumper is captured on video, which is for sale after the jump (weather permitting). Bungy jumping is offered seven days a week, all year round. Jumping hours are 9 am to 5 pm. The minimum age limit is 14 years, and the minimum weight is 40kg. There are no upper age or weight limits.(Thank Goodness)
Certain medical conditions may preclude some individuals from jumping. These include pregnancy, high blood pressure, heart conditions, certain neurological disorders, epilepsy, and certain acute or chronic knee, or back injuries. All jumpers, (like with our riders) will be asked to sign an indemnity form by the jump operator.
Bloukrans River Bridge
You can now bungy jump the highest commercial bungy jump in the world, surpassing the position previously held by Vic Falls. The bridge is 216m high, but the jump is only about 160m. You will be jumping from the arch support of the bridge.
Access to the jump point, on the top of the arch, is via a specially designed walkway underneath the road deck. The walkway is also 216m long, offering a breathtaking and awesome experience in itself while a unique pendulum bungy system ensures the longest and smoothest ride in the world.
Bloukrans Bridge is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, 40km from Plettenberg Bay in the Tsitsikamma forest area, and is about 90 minutes from The Amsterdam, making this an ideal day outing to return to view your jump tapes, as well as calm those nerves in the Legacy Lounge.
