Nile High Bungee: An Unforgettable Leap
Discover the Nile High Bungee
Imagine standing atop a bungee tower 44 meters above the Nile, ready to take the leap of a lifetime. The Nile High Bungee isn’t just an adrenaline rush; it’s a spectacle with breathtaking views. When not in use, a troop of Vervet monkeys often plays guardian to the tower. Below, the source of the world’s longest river unfolds in all its glory, surrounded by forested islands and cheered on by spectators from the nearby bar. Unique to Nile High, you can even touch the water on your first bounce, making for an unforgettable splash in the Nile!
Your Jump, Your Way
Leap with a friend, or bring an unconventional companion like a bicycle or kayak. The most popular choice is the ankle tie, but for the thrill-seekers, a full-body harness allows for somersaults or any freestyle jump you dare. It’s not just a jump; it’s a chance to create stories and earn those bragging rights with spectacular photos.

To Touch or Not to Touch the Nile: The choice is yours: skim above the Nile or make a splash in its historic waters. Either way, it’s a story worth telling.
