Wild Gorge Swing
The Wild Gorge swing at Oribi Gorge is an awesome experience that leaves you breathless but exhilarated. Situated at the top of Lehrs falls, it is the highest swing in the world. One steps or jumps off the waterfall to swing into the depths of the gorge in a 100m (33 Storeys) arc.
A full body harness is used to allow for a comfortable ride. Fully qualified personnel are on hand to prepare one for this experience.
