The Soweto Cooling Towers are an affordable tourist attraction in South Africa. The towers were part of Orlando Power Station, which was a coal-fired power station in Soweto, a township based in the South of Johannesburg, South Africa.

The power station was active for over 50 years. However, In 2008 the towers of the power station were transformed into a tourist attraction, with fun activities for thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. The activities offered within the 33-storey towers are:

  • Tower climb – R60 per person
  • 360 degree view of Soweto at the top of the Tower – R80
  • SCAD freefall – R400 per person
