Tourist experiencing Bungee Jumping

Exciting scenes from Soweto
Bungee Jumping in South Africa is bridging the gap between adventure and tourism as many more tourists have been engaging in the jumping excitement.
 The country has a lot of enjoyable activities to promote tourism in that part of the world, but the experience of Bungee Jumping is really boosting the country’s tourism, according to reports.

Bungee Jumping is basically an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord.

In the hub of Soweto lies Orlando Towers, where one of South Africa’s Bungee Jumping and other kinds of exciting activities take place. It does not only provide excitement, but also gives tourists an opportunity to have an awesome view of Soweto from the top of the towers.

Well designed and painted to reflect the famous sons and daughters of Soweto as well as traditional township scenes, the towers are used for different adventure experiences.

These include bungee jump, a tower swing (the world’s first between two cooling towers), an internal tower swing and base jumping, all off the top of the West Tower, some 100m up.

Anyone who visits South Africa and does not visit the Orlando Towers would miss an opportunity to experience on of the best parts of South Africa.

The Soweto Bungee Jump sees one jumping 33 storeys down, and the Power Swing offers freefall for 40m until the swing cables kick in.

The ominously named Abyss, is similar to the Power Swing but sees one jumping inside the tower, swinging across the width of its base.
 Talented actress, Yvonne Okoro, marked her 29th birthday on Monday, November 25 by commissioning a playground she built for children of the Dzorwulu Special School in Accra.
“Two years ago, I was at the school to celebrate my birthday with the students. When I was leaving, I realized that the playground was in a deplorable state. The metals were all rusted. So I told myself that, I won’t stop till I’m able to provide a good recreational center for the students so that at the end of the day, they can also pride themselves of having a beautiful playground.  That was the most important thing for me. And I wanted to thank everyone who supported this project,” she explained was her reason for the kind gesture.

 Africa Magic Entertainment, a major sponsor of this year’s Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF), spiced up the festive feeling with an all white party for delegates on last week Thursday evening at the Tinapa Lakeside Hotel in Calabar.
It was one of a kind party with some of the most loved names in Africa’s movie industry passing through. But not most of them respected the dress code for the party.
There had been series of parties during the festival but the Thursday event seemed the mother of all.
Among celebrated names who attended the ceremony were Ramsey Nouah, Oge Okoye, Kate Henshaw, OC Ukeje, Lydia Forson, Wale Ojo, Kunle Afolayan, Chioma Akpotha, Omoni Oboli and a host of others.

 African tourism needs serious attention because the continent has many historic heritage sites that the world must see and learn from. Africans particularly should also embrace Africa tourism to discover more about the origin of the continent. A good place to focus on is South African tourism.
The country is blessed with some of the world’s amazing and greatest heritage sites. One of such is the Cradle of Humankind, which is the world’s richest hominid site, home to around 40% of the world’s human ancestor fossils.
