Oribi Gorge Suspension Bridge

Adventure awaits 100 meters above terra firma, high up in the ceiling of the Oribi Gorge ravine. Try to catch your breath as you venture across the Oribi Gorge suspension bridge, and soak up the abundant natural beauty that surrounds you.

Oribi Gorge Swing

Earn your bragging rights! A little pep talk may be all you need to take the leap off Lehr’s Waterfall via the wild Oribi gorge bridge swing, the highest gorge swing in the world. Unlike with bungee jumping, you will be strapped in securely with a full body harness, before plummeting 55 storeys into the ravine.

Oribi Gorge Slide

Ever wanted to fly with the birds? Suspended 165 Meters above the tree canopy below, the Wild slide is an opportunity to take a moment of quiet solitude in the skies while draped on the oribi gorge zip line. Comfortably and securely strapped into a full body harness, enjoy an unparalleled perspective of Lehr’s Waterfall and Baboon’s Castle.

If extreme adventure wilderness activities are not on your bucket list, savor the sheer scale and idyllic scenery of the Oribi Gorge on one of the several nature trails or picnic spots.

Avid photographers and bird watchers alike will not be disappointed by the abundance of birdlife, with over 250 bird species identified. A wealth of wildlife calls the expansive landscape home – from the many types of buck, duiker, leguaans and of course, the Oribi.

    Der absolute Wahnsinn! Was für ein mega toller Tag… Wir hatten uns viel erhofft,aber das was auf uns zu kam hat alles um weiten getoppt! Angefangen mit dem halt auf einer Zuckerplantage(mit Kostprobe),weiter zu unserem Swing-Abenteuer im Oribi Georg wo der Adrenalinpegel nach oben geschossen ist….bis weiter zum Lake Eland dessen Aussichtsplattform schon alleine die Reise/den Ausflug wert war! Einfach Atemberaubend!! Unser Guide hat uns zwischendurch immer nach unseren Wohlbefinden gefragt und uns viele Details zu den verschiedenen Locations gegeben. Und obwohl in der Beschreibung stand,dass die Eintritte auf eigene kosten sind,hat er alle kosten aus eigener tasche gezahlzt. Schließlich haben wir ihm am Anschluss mit reichlich Trinkgeld belohnt. Doch der Ausflug war jeden Cent wert. Danke auch an das ganze TEAM!! Man merkt,dass diese Leute mit Leidenschaft an der Sache sind! Selbst jetzt zu hause,habe ich immer noch über WhatsApp kontakt zu unserem Guide…Es war mir eine ehre dich kennenlernen zu dürfen
