Orlando Towers Soweto, South Africa
South Africa

These two cooling towers are the largest landmark in historical Soweto, now one of South Africa's most popular tourist attractions. The towers were originally built for the Orlando Power Station, the most advanced facility in the Southern hemisphere in its day.

You can experience one of the most exhilarating view of Soweto ever! With a lift up the 100m tall West tower, you can Bungee Jump from 100 metres, Power Swing between the two cooling towers, jump The Abyss into the cooling tower, Rap Jump into the cooling tower and BASE Jump if you have the experience!! And of course enjoy the view.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
