PLEASE NOTE: The bridge swing and bungy have been stopped during 2009 due to the unsafe bridge structure.Bloukrans River Bridge is the alternative Bungi Jumping spot.
About 35 kilometers to the west of Mossel Bay along the N2 national road is the historical Gourits River Bridge. This is where Bungy jumping began in South Africa. Gourits River Bridge is 65m high, and is the longest running bungy site in Africa.
Just as you thought you had done it all, the Gourits Bridge Swing looms ahead of you. This is the ultimate in flying without wings. Leap, fall, jump or dive off the platform while being securely attached to the opposite bridge - the ultimate swing.
Feel the rush of the air past your face as you swing over the riverbed below, underneath the bridge to the other side. Do it in tandem to get closer to that other person in your life than ever before. Alone or together, you can do it!
This is great for those who don't like to jump head first here you don't hang upside down but go off feet first ensuring that you are in an upright position at all times. This is a great activity for teambuilding and incentives. Large groups easily catered for.
Certain medical conditions may preclude some individuals from jumping. These include pregnancy, high blood pressure, heart conditions, certain neurological disorders, epilepsy, and certain acute or chronic knee or back injuries. All jumpers are asked to sign an indemnity form.
Bridge Swing is offered seven days a week, all year round from 9 am to 5 pm. The minimum age limit is 14 years, and the minimum weight is 40 kg. There are no upper age or weight limits.
