Wild Five Adventures - Gorge Swing

Wild Five Adventures - Gorge Swing or Big Swing operator at Oribi Gorge, South Coast.

The Gorge Swing, voted by our guests as their most popular activity in our range of wild adventures, goes way beyond your usual adrenalin activity. One of South Africa’s top activity hubs, Wild Five at Orbibi Gorge, offers everything you’d want in an adventure destination. Professional, friendly, and engaged guides, spectacular scenery, and a range of exhilarating experiences, of which the Gorge Swing, the world’s highest, is the pinnacle!

The 300-meter deep Oribi Gorge in KwaZulu Natal sets the scene, with its dramatic sandstone walls, jungle-like scenery, and plunging 170-meter high waterfall. The Gorge Swing is a record-breaker. You’ll free fall 33-meters and swing in a 100-meter arc. It’s wild, it’s crazy, it’s inspiring! And it’s completely safe. Our Gorge Swing has been carefully designed and all our equipment is world-class and undergoes regular maintenance. Our adventures guides are highly experienced and qualified. They also understand the progression of fear that unfolds as jump time draws near and know how to help you achieve the big leap even though your mind is screaming at you not to do it!

A visit to Wild Five Adventures will be the highlight of your holiday, and our Gorge Swing is the highlight of the day. It’s only a 1.5-hour drive, on good roads, from King Shaka Airport on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal. It is also an ideal adventure destination to include in your Wild Coast holiday and a short drive from Port Shepstone. Not only is there a range of fantastic “mild to wild” activities to take part in, but the setting is pristine and beautiful with plentiful birdlife and even the chance of spotting games like baboons and antelope. There are lovely picnic spots, hiking trails to explore and a host of interesting natural features, like overhanging rocks and pinnacles, to walk to.
