About Bloukrans River Bridge

Bungi jump the highest commercial bungi jump in the world! The mere mention of ‘Bloukrans’ puts a massive grin on the faces of adrenalin junkies from all over the world. And it is no wonder. Not only is this a gorgeous bridge from where to enjoy breath-takingly beautiful views of the Garden Route, it is also the highest commercial bungy jump on the planet.

Did you know? The Bloukrans Bungi Jump surpasses the position previously held by the Victoria Falls as the 'highest bungi in the world".

Established in 1990, this bungy jumping hotspot is a staggering 216 metres (or almost 710 feet) high. It is for this reason that it is proud to have several world records associated with it; one of which is Scott Huntley’s 107 jumps in 24 hours.

Although safe, there is absolutely no doubt that Bloukrans bungy jumps are going to get your heart pounding, stomach churning and hands quivering; no matter how much of a daredevil you are. The pendulum bungy technology ensures that each jump is as smooth as possible. The harness is a full-body one with an ankle connection for the ultimate in safety.

For those not wanting to jump, or who want to experience even more of the thrills, there is a walkway under the bridge, which allows you to feel the rush of the dizzying heights without the heart-stopping horror of the fall. The walkway takes visitors to the arch of the bridge, from where those wanting to jump take their leap. So, this is a perfect spot from which to watch jumpers, or to support friends and family that are doing the bungy.

Needless to say, it also allows for absolutely exquisite, uninterrupted views of the valleys and mountains of the Garden Route, promising the ideal photo opportunities. Walking tours are conducted along this walkway to allow groups to see these gorgeous views with the help and insight of an experienced guide.

The pub and restaurant, aptly called The Cliffhanger, is perched right on the lip of the mountain, overlooking the bridge and the gorge. There are live feeds to televisions in the restaurant so that diners can watch others jump, sharing in their thrills and nerves.

The camera zooms into their face before they leap, and then pulls back for a fantastic view of the jump itself. In this way, you can share their experience from the comfortable and calm ambience of the eatery. The menu includes easy eating items, like burgers, ribs, fish and chips, and steaks. Cold beers, South African wines, a range of spirits and a good selection of non-alcoholic drinks, teas and coffees are also available.

The Face Adrenalin store stocks branded clothing and accessories (such as t-shirts, hoodies and caps) that are stylish and made from a good quality material. These are great keepsakes and memories, and give you ideal bragging rights to tell others of your jump.

The Bloukrans River Bridge has also hosted a number of celebrities from around the world, so keep an eye out for familiar faces. To date, the likes of Prince Harry, Thabo Mbeki, Kelly Slater, and Bob Skinstad have all been spotted testing their nerves here.

Its excellent locale puts the Bloukrans Bridge in the perfect position for a number of other tourist attractions and towns that are well worth the visit. Nature’s Valley and the rest of the Tsitsikamma are absolutely stunning to explore and are full of outdoor adventures (such as ziplining, tubing down the river, and horse riding). Knysna is less than 70 kilometres away and Plettenberg Bay is only 38 kilometres away. So, while Bloukrans is an attraction in its own right, it is also worth a visit en route to your ultimate destination.
