Sightseeing

Orlando Towers

These two huge cooling towers covered in colourful murals are Soweto's most recognisable landmark and the area is now a magnet for thrill seekers looking to go bungee jumping, paintballing, power swinging and rock climbing. One of the most popular attractions is the SCAD Fall, where 'divers' freefall (completely unattached to anything) for 70 metres through the centre of one of the towers, landing on a Suspended Catch Air Device (a kind of giant springy net). If all that sounds a bit too scary, there's also the fun Chaf-Pozi shisa nyama (traditional South African barbecue) restaurant and bar to enjoy.
