First time bungee jumper. Absolutely loved it! The staff is super friendly and compared to extreme sports prices abroad this was incredibly reasonable. Not to mention the wonderful local cuisine on offer. Had a great time and I'd come back 100 times.

Jumping between the beautifully painted towers is so special. The rickety old lift and the wire bridge the jump point really help build the adranaline and then when you finally you get so close to the ground I felt I could touch it!

Bungee jumping off the Orlando Towers was one of the highlights of my entire trip. The view from the top of the towers is breath taking. The staff was supportive and made sure I was safe which put my mind at ease. The best part is after you jump you can enjoy drinks and local BBQ.

Family outing for a scad jump. The attention to detail given by the staff was just the piece of mind needed to make one feel relaxed. They are very professional and helpful and are there to make the experience and overwhelming one. The place needs a bit of attention (facilities as a whole), but go with an open mind and... More

The Orlando towers have been decommissioned as a power plant and have been re-purposed as an activity hub. There are various activities which include quad biking, paint balling, underground soccer and my favourite bungee jumping. All the staff is pretty helpful and they do take safety very seriously. the jump from between the towers is incredible. The views of Soweto... More

Very friendly and professional staff, and a gorgeous view of Soweto from the top! You can't take anything up with you, but you can pay for photos to be taken at the top and the guy is fun and the pictures great - it also gives you a chance to actually look at the view without your phone in front...

During our visit to Soweto, my wife and I were impressed with the Orlando Towers. These towers had formerly been used to generate power. They have now been repurposed as part of an entertainment complex which includes paintball and bungee jumping. Rather being an eyesore, these towers are now colorful and a source of revenue and fun for the community... More

Our high school tour group visited the towers and we expected them to want to climb the towers. Less than half was interested. The very friendly manager agreed to allow them to play paint-ball instead and this went slightly better. The few second bungy was expensive (R500+) and not a consideration. Not to sure if we'll go again.
