If you are a thrill seeker looking for the adrenaline-rush of a lifetime, the Wild Gorge Swing in Oribi Gorge will offer you guaranteed over-the-edge excitement! Give in to gravity by hurling yourself off the edge of Lehr’s Falls in what must be the most adrenaline inducing ride of your life! Rated as the world’s highest gorge swing, this activity means stepping (or diving) off the edge of the waterfall and plummeting into the 55-storey deep gorge. The free-fall is awesome and will have you accelerating up to the astounding speed of 120km/hours in 2.3 seconds.

Wild 5 is situated on the Oribi Gorge Hotel property, 20 minutes’ drive from Port Shepstone, on the South Coast of KZN. Set amidst world-renowned view sites, Wild 5 Adventures offers a range of extreme (and milder) adventures in a setting of phenomenal natural beauty. These include a 110m abseil, foefie-slide, 85m suspension bridge, white water rafting on the Umzimkhulu, paintball and guided trails (hiking, birding and horseback). The fresh air does wonders for the appetite, so why not round off the perfect day by settling down for a bite to eat at the Oribi Gorge Hotel’s Wild Fig Cafe.

This place is amazing, we travel down from Durban often to do the hikes, the views are simply breathtaking. When I was younger I did the Wild Swing however I don't remember the actual experience, defiantly saving up to do that jump again - hopefully soon. So much to do here and so many things to see. <3

Epic! Mother Nature in all her splendor. Views are breathtaking and for those who are not faint @ heart the activities are even better. But even if u don't jump or swing still just watching others is fun enough. Will be back.

We stopped here quite late one afternoon after a long day elsewhere, we really only came for the views and walks, didn't realise that there was so much else to do. Unfortunately I only viewed the sites and walked to then overhanging rock but observed a few people do the leap, from a distance it all looked very professional and... More

One of nature's best places a serious traveler has to see. And obviously take the "leap of faith" at the Oribi Gorge.....
