Great fun. Good crew. Wanted to do the scad as well as the bungee but was told the scad wasn’t operating while I was there. A shame they painted over the story of Soweto on the one tower with an advertisement.

Bungy jumped with friends as a birthday celebration, scariest thing I have ever done in my entire life. The staff are such great help and really go out above and beyond to make your experience memorable. Didn't like the bathrooms, just demolish that horrible building...More

Interesting place, the towers are very much a local landmark and now big advertising. There is the facility to bungee jump of a bridge between the 2 towers and there is food and beer served on the premises, also had music in the evening.

It's easy having a healthy breath on the top towers of SoWeTo. Orlando towers were are a very nice place I have enjoyed to visit in Johannesburg especially its bungee jump from 330 meters above the ground. The place is free gun zone.

We initially planned to go bungee jumping off the Towers however due to time constraints we decided to enjoy the beauty of the morales. Completely worth the drive.

One of my highlights in Joburg was doing The Bungee at Orlando Towers. If Bungee is not your thing they have other adrenaline packed activities such as Free Fall
