Graskop Gorge Lift Big Swing Single Jump
- About 8 hours
- Easy cancellation
The Big Swing is the world’s highest cable gorge swing. The experience is very different to a bungee-jump because participants are strapped in an upright position in a full safety harness. Being upright enables them to enjoy the magnificent views – that is if they can keep their eyes open as they do a 70-metre freefall at 140km/h in under three seconds.
Once their hearts have stopped racing after their jump, participants get to immerse themselves further in the spectacular scenery of the gorge, waterfall and forest as they climb over 400 stairs back to the top.
The maximum weight on a tandem is 130kg 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. ALWAYS listen to your instructor.
442 stairs ascending through the gorge and into the trees will take you back up to the top. Enjoy the stunning and unusual plants and bird life, as well as a few old car wrecks.
To compliment the Swing, THE EDGE BAR, the multi-tiered deck on the opposite side of the gorge allows you to sit back and enjoy a drink while watching the jumpers!
An abundance of African Arts and Crafts are available for the “Die Hard Shoppers” and exclusive Big Swing merchandise is also available. There is something for everyone!

Fantastic centre. Best views, great gallery. Had a lovely lunch watching the bungee jumping. Lift unfortunately was not operating but still worth the trip. Highly recommended.
Amazing experience going down into forest with the glass lift. Also great fun crossing the suspension bridge. Enables one to get a perfect view of the Graskop Gorge.
Loved it. Lots of places where can get a fantastic view of the gorge and the "valley" beyond. It was great to be able to experience this with my family. There is a lift down into the gorge and a 600 meter deck path that is accessible for wheel chair users.
Quite simply superb. Exceeded my expectations in all respects. It was an amazing feeling to experience the gorge forest up close. The infrastructure is first-rate, as are the signage and descriptions (except for the fungi sign, which made some dubious medical claims). The restaurant/cafe is awesome in terms of presentation and the quality of the food and service. All highly recommended.
Disappointing. The gorge lift have not been working for the past 2weeks and according to the staff they have no idea when it will be repaired. She also mentioned that this is not the first time that they are unable to provide the service for a long peroid. It is such an amazing location and could be one of the best tourist attractions in the area if it is maintained and managed properly.
Understandably mechanical problems can happen but to still charge people a R60 entrance with nothing on offer is ridiculous.
The beauty of Table Mountain, Lions Head and the Atlantic Sea Board coastline from the comfort of our kayaks is unrivalled. Dolphins, seals, penguins, Sunfish and occasionally whales frequent our Cape Town.
