Soweto Towers once served as a home to an old power station, but those days are long behind them. It grew into one of Johannesburg’s top tourist attractions in the past few decades, especially if you happen to be a passionate adrenaline seeker. Here are a few thrilling activities you can enjoy here during your visit to South Africa.

Bungee Jumping

If you want to give bungee jumping a try, Soweto Towers are the best place to get it done. 100 meter jumps from a suspension bridge are the most popular option, but if they’re not thrilling enough for you, how about trying straightjacket bungee jumps?

Free Falls

The western tower is the best place to give SCAD free falls a shot. Base jumping is also available, but not for everyone. If you want to give this activity a shot, you must have experience skydiving and over 100 free falls under your belt.

Breathtaking Views

You can visit Soweto Towers even if you’re not looking for an adrenaline rush. This Johannesburg landmark offers some of the best views in the entire city, and that’s part of its charm. Take a lift at the western tower to get to a viewing platform with a 360-degree view of the Soweto township.
