About Orlando Towers, Soweto
This landmark is a must-visit in Soweto. During the Apartheid era, the towers were used by a coal-burning plant to produce electricity for the northern suburban region of Johannesburg. On the other hand, Soweto’s people became the sufferers as they were left to inhale the poisonous smoke emit from these towers. These towers worked till 1998 and after that it was left neglected and unused. However in 2007, Skyriders transformed these unused towers into an entertainment area – a vertical adventure facility and a prominent landmark for tourists. Today, these towers hold a special place for adrenaline junkies who wish to experience activities like swinging, bungee jumping, rap jumping, climbing, abseiling and a zip line. The towers also serve as giant billboards where artistic murals depicting the lifestyle in Soweto have been done.
While exploring the city, your eyes cannot ignore the giant painting of ‘Madiba waving his hand’ on the towers.

Orlando Towers, Soweto Reviews
Safe and fun. If one wants something that’ll really give them an adrenaline rush, look no further. Affordable safe and fun. Lots of activities around there. Quite professional staff, they offer video and photography but won’t hurt to have a friend taking a video from below since you jump with a GoPro camera. I loved the experience.
Too many flies while we were eating which was extremely annoying! Everything else was very very good! Awesome experience. I would go back there.
Absolutely amazing. Chaf pozi is a great place to spend with friends and family. The staff is very welcoming and courteous. There are various activities that you can do as a group such as paintball, quad bike rides. Great place for parties and year-end functions.
