EXPERIENCE THE ULTIMATE RUSH! If you are a thrill seeker looking for the adrenaline-rush of a lifetime, the Wild Gorge Swing in Oribi Gorge will offer you guaranteed over-the-edge excitement! Give in to gravity by hurling yourself off the edge of Lehr’s Falls in what must be the most adrenaline inducing ride of your life! Rated as the world’s highest gorge swing, this activity means stepping (or diving) off the edge of the waterfall and plummeting into the 55-storey deep gorge. The free-fall is awesome and will have you accelerating up to the astounding speed of 120km/hours in 2.3 seconds. Wild 5 is situated on the Oribi Gorge Hotel property, 20 minutes’ drive from Port Shepstone, on the South Coast of KZN. Set amidst world-renowned view sites, Wild 5 Adventures offers a range of extreme (and milder) adventures in a setting of phenomenal natural beauty. These include a 110m abseil, foefie-slide, 85m suspension bridge, white water rafting on the Umzimkhulu, paintball and guided trails

The zip line was safe and so much fun! It can be a bit scary the guides really take a lot of the stress out of it. I thought it was well organised and would definitely do it again.
