Bloukrans Bridge Bungi photographs (highest bungi in the world)

Send to Kindle

Photographs of the famous Bloukrans River Bridge – The Bloukrans Bungi Jump surpasses the position previously held by the Victoria Falls as the ‘highest bungi in the world’. The Bloukrans bridge is 216 m high and the jump is approximately 160 metres. The first photograph gives an idea of the size of the bridge and on the second (zoomed in) photo you can see the action Bloukrans River Bungee!

The third photo shows a jumper on his way down and the fourth and last shows the entrance to the “experience of a lifetime”, the Bloukrans Bridge (not sure if the pub is for celebrating afterwards or to get some stupid courage beforehand – I know I would need both and then some!).
