Do you dare to resist the Big Swing in Graskop?

The maximum weight on a tandem is 200kg but the swing can handle this weight ten fold. There are 4 dynamic ropes each consisting of a 25 ton breaking strain and they stretch 23% of the jump. These ropes and all other equipment are inspected on a daily basis. We run at 110% safety! Our highly trained professional team will talk you through your jump.

Getting back up to the top means walking up 442 stairs that ascend through the gorge and into the trees. This allows you some time to explore the stunning scenery and unusual plant and bird life, as well as a few old car wrecks.

If swinging is not for you, why not take a seat at The Edge Bar, a multi-tiered deck on the opposite side of the gorge which allows you to sit back and enjoy a drink while watching the jumpers.

Tip: near the big swing you will find the Graskop gorge an elevator where you can go down to the gorge and enjoy the wonderful nature.
