Sometimes the hardest thing to do in life is to simply let go, especially when you’re 106 metres up! The appeal of hurling yourself off a building while attached to an elastic chord is not the 10 seconds or so of abject terror you feel as you fall, but the elation that follows when the bungee cord arrests your fall, and you swing back and forth with a sense of having defied gravity.
Durban’s icon, the Moses Mabhida Stadium, offers adrenalin-pumping activities for fun–seeking families, or a spot of office team-building. Take a trip on the Sky Car or, if you have some winter kilos to shed, make the 550-step climb to the top of the arch (the 160-degree panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and Durban make the slog worth it, trust us). But the real thrill is the Big Swing. Hop aboard the Sky Car; once you’re up with the birds get holstered, take your position on the lip of the stadium roof and tell your feet (which are suddenly rooted more than ever before) to tell your brain to take the leap!
Take note: If terrafirma is more your vibe, then take a peek inside the remarkable stadium with one of their all-access (90 minute) or general (45 minute) tours.
