Went past as a part of the Red City Bus Tour, hadn't the courage to do the bungee jump! But it's really a sight to see and so worth it! Great monument with such fantastic murals on it!

The Orlando Towers can be viewed from all over the Soweto area. You can even bungee into and from the towers. But the artwork alone is well worth the look, showing the best of South Africa. This was a must see for me when we travelled to SA.

Let me explain why I say average...the bungee jump was awesome!!! The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and informative. They really keep your spirits up:) That was the best part of the day. however, certain attractions are advertised that are non existant such as the orlando towers museum. The general housekeeping of the area is not great... Litter at the base... More

So ok, I finally took the leap and jumped...was in Soweto and decided to be adventurous so I went to the Orlando Towers, it was truly liberating to jump so high and actually loose yourself in that fall. Next time you decide to explore Soweto, make a stop at the Orlando Towers oh and before I finish off....I got addicted... More

The Orlando Towers are big and colorful but not worth the stop. You can pass close driving and see from the car.

When you first arrive in Soweto, you can't help but notice the attraction of the Orlando Towers. And it's even more spectacular up-close. I didn't manage to bungy off the towers but heard it's awesome.

For a truly magnificent township experience, when you are in Johannesburg, make a turn at Orlando towers for a great experience. There are other notable attractions nearby, all I can say is that you gotta experience it yourself to believe me.

The towers are very much a part of the Soweto landscape and are often featured in photo shoots and movies . The added bonus these days is that if you want to conquer your fear , you can bungee jump from the towers . Brightly painted and great to photograph .

Throughly enjoyed the view and jump! Not for the faint hearted as the towers were really tall and teh suspension bridge in between almost terrifying....
