Looking for Adventures! Try the highest commercial natural bungy jump in the world. There have been a number of world records associated with Bloukrans. In 2003, Bloukrans bungy was recognised as the worlds highest commercial bungy jump. In 2008 we were part of two more world records. Veronica Dean performed 19 bungy jumps in one hour and Bill Boshoff performed 101 jumps in a 24 hour period. Bill’s world record was subsequently surpassed, in 2011 Face Adrenaline facillitated Scott Huntley to regain the world record with 107 jumps in the 24 hour period.

The owners of Face Adrenalin were instrumental in introducing bungy jumping to the African continent in 1990. The first bridge to be bungy jumped off in Africa was the Bloukrans River Bridge. At the time, this was the highest  jump to be performed in the world!

In 1991, through Kiwi Extreme, introduced bungy jumping from a crane at the Rand Show in Johannesburg. Kiwi Extreme also ran crane bungy jumping and catapult bungy operations at the old Gunston 500 surfing competitions in Durban for a number of years.
In 1993 they helped establish the highest bungy jump of it’s time at the Victoria Falls bridge bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.

In 1997 they established the current worlds highest commercial bungy bridge from the Bloukrans River Bridge. This bridge borders the Eastern and Western Cape and is situated in the Tsitsikamma area of the Garden Route.

Face Adrenalin have played host to the likes of Prince Harry, Jack Osbourne, Thabo Mbeki, The Zuma family, Bobby Skinstad, Hansie Cronje, Fanie De Villiers, KellySlater, Andy Irons, The Amazing Race, and many more famous and not so famous visitors – you never know who you could meet on any given day at Bloukrans. The Bloukrans bridge is 216 meters (709 feet) above the Bloukrans River. The operations is open 365 days of the year during all weather conditions (except gale force winds).

The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour

Storms River

tree top canopy tours

The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour is a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. The first of its kind in Africa, the canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 meters above the forest floor…

Most platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2.5 to 3 hours.
The concept of guiding people through the upper canopy of a rainforest originated in Costa Rica, where adventurous biologists devised new methods for accessing the forest canopy in order to conduct research on the undiscovered canopy ecosystem. The idea soon developed into a breathtaking form of eco-tourism which allowed people to enter and experience a previously inaccessible natural environment.
