South Africa's Bungee Jumping Booms Adventure Tourism

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)…

Yvonne Okoro Built Playground For Special Students On Birthday

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.

How AFRIFF Stars Reacted To Africa Magic White Party Dress Code

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.
