Whether you’re a thrill-seeking adventurer or have been wanting to try something daring for the longest time, Johannesburg certainly offers up some adventure gems! Here are three adventure activities that you have to experience in Joburg.
Why you should experience it: Bungee jumping off of the Soweto towers in Joburg is an exceptional adventure experience that’ll have you talking for years to come. Opt for a regular bungee, with a cord wrapped around your feet, or the more daring straightjacket bungee – where your arms are tucked away and you feel free-fall towards the ground without the use of them. Hectic!
How much does it cost: Bungee jumping is R630 per person and straightjacket bungee jumping is around R1 030 per person.
Why you should experience it: A Gyrocopter, albeit a funny-looking contraption, is a fun, adrenaline-filled way to experience the skies above Joburg. The two-seater aircraft allows you incredible, scenic views from up above and if you request it, your pilot can demonstrate to you just what a remarkable machine the Gyrocopter really is.
How much does it cost: Flights are priced according to length. For a 30-minute flight it’s R 1 560 per person, 45-minutes is R 2 340 per person and 60-minutes is R 3 120 per person.
Why you should experience it: Tandem Skydiving is the best way to experience skydiving with the least amount of training. You’re able to jump out of a plane the very same day, after a little training to familiarize yourself with skydiving procedures. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Joburg area as you prepare yourself for an epic rush of adrenaline once you take that leap!
How much does it cost: R2 000 per person. Expect to pay a little more for video footage and photographs.
