Soweto Towers is one of our favourite affordable South African tourist attractions.
Bungee Jumping in Soweto
Soweto Towers bungee jumping has been on our list of things to do in Soweto for a while now. Unfortunately, we have not taken the plunge yet. The best we came to bungee jumping was to watch other people do it, as demonstrated by the video on this post. This bungee jumping video was taken at the Soweto Towers on a sunny Sunday in the winter of 2018.
