There is a very famous bungee jump on the Garden Route, which is known as one of the highest bungee jumps in the world. For the daredevils amongst us this is something you definitely can’t skip! But even if you are not such a hero, it is nice to stop for a while and see the jumpers as you can see them very well from the bungee center.
The Bloukrans bungee jump is a 216m high bungee jump from the Bloukans bridge. The bungee can only be done as a single jump (alone and not together with a supervisor). You jump from a platform that is in the middle under the bridge. You reach the platform through a cage construction under the bridge, you go here together with your guide and fellow jumpers. The adventure actually begins with the walk to the platform! If you do not want to jump but you do want to support the jumper, there is the possibility that you will walk to the platform with them. It is good to mention that much attention is paid to the safety of the jumper and that the supervisors are very professional and put you at ease.
The Bloukrans bridge is located on the N2, between Plettenberg Bay and Tsitsikamma NP. The exit is located on the North side of the N2 and is well signposted. At the exit you will arrive at the Tsitsikamma khoisan village at a gaete where you will report to a security guard. He will point you that you must turn left and follow the road to the bungee center.
The bungee jump is open all year round, only in extreme weather conditions it will be closed. The first jump is at 9 a.m. and the last will be around 4 p.m. You have to present about an hour before the jump to complete all formalities and get the right gear. Jumping is possible from the age of 14 and a minimum weight of 35 kilos, walking to the platform is allowed from the age of 6. Maximum weight is 150 pounds.
