3 - 2 - 1 Bungeeeeeeee!!!!

Thursday, February 10, 2011 | Markus Hellrigl | Africa


In my opinion motorcycling in South Africa gives you plenty of thrill, but after 1 ½ weeks on the road some of our group were looking for an extra kick of adrenalin. They have already been told about the chance of their life time to do the “real” thing – the world's highest bungy bridge located at the Garden Route spanning over the Bloukrans: 216 meters of pure adrenalin.

Rushing from Port Elizabeth to the place on the foothills of the Tzizikama Mountains everybody's thoughts were already ahead. Will they really do it? Carl, US citizen was already a “bungy veteran” - seven jumps including some in Las Vegas were already on his records. Jose from Venezuela was not a first-timer either. But then there were Gerd from Germany and Howard from Canada, both facing a double: their first jump and the world record bridge! What a thrill!

Howie, Gerd, Jose and Carl are ready to recieve their extra portion of adrenalin

A perfect launch...

What a great life experience. Now that you are taller, you can drink a bit more beer to fill out.

Go, Howie, go!!!!!!!!!!!!! But don't forget to attach that bungy cord to your ankles before you jump from the bridge!
