I did the free fall here. The bungee jump lift was down, not that I wanted to bungee jump, so there weren't a lot of people there. A group went up before us and we waited to see what it was like. We decided to do it and I loved it. Its scary looking but it was not that bad.... More

Was nice to see the artwork on the Orlando towers but now way would you get bungee jumping off of them... With one of the towers having murals of South Africa and the other with corporate FNB branding.

I enjoyed my first visit so much I had to come back and bring my friends. Jumped in the cooling tower, yelled like a little girl, had some great traditional food and cold beer. Will definitely come back!

We were with a large group for a Soweto tour one day. My fiance and I spotted Orlando Towers from the tour bus, and decided we were going to go there some way or some how. Our tour guide had no problem with us leaving the group and changing our plans for the day. The tour guide arranged for transportation... More

We took a self drive up to the towers and walk around, impressive sight and some great art work, The resturant is very popular although we didnt sit down to eat, the venue has great ambiance and the atmosphere is relaxed. The towers had a couple of people bungy jumping off them which made for an interesting watch. Very clean... More

These Towers are symbol of Johannesburg and are amazing to check even from far away. It is worth it to go there and take a look (or maybe jump from the top)!
