The 5 Best Bungee Jumps in the World

What’s life without a few near-death experiences, right? With that, I thought I’d roll out the best bungee jumps in the world including 2 I’ve had first-time experiences with. If you’ve never ‘bungeed’ before then it’s gotta be on your bucket list so if you’re hitting up any of the countries these 5 bad boys are in, then get on some disposable underwear and take the leap. Make sure your travel insurance covers bungee jumping folks. I use these guys, they cover me for almost everything!

Victoria Falls Bungee, Zimbabwe/Zambian border (110m/360feet):

A bit of a controversial choice as this has featured quite heavily in the news recently when a girl’s bungee cord snapped! Also, it’s not in the top 5 highest bungees in the world. But it’s has to be the most beautiful. 111M of sheer fear as you jump of Victoria Bridge, into a circular rainbow thanks to the mist caused by the falls. When you’re finished you can see Victoria Falls as your backdrop, nothing short of amazing. Victoria Falls is stunning
PRICE: Around $110

Bloukrans Bridge, South Africa – (216 m/708 feet):

The world’s highest single-span arch bridge, the Bloukrans Bridge bungee is the third highest bungee in the world at 708 feet (216 m). It’s also the highest point in the world from which you can bungee off. And formally the highest bungee jump in the world.

PRICE: Around $100

Verzasca Dam, Switzerland – (220 m/720 feet):

It found mainstream fame with the opening sequence of the Bond movie Goldeneye. The Verzasca dam offers a pure freefall swinging bungee from a single cord. If banging into a massive concrete structure at a top speed doesn’t scare you, then this is the jump for you. The Verzasca Dam bungee jump is now the second highest bungee jump in the world.

PRICE: $280

Macau Tower, China – (233 m/760 feet):

What is the highest bungee jump in the world?

You found it! Officially, it’s the Macau Tower bungee jump. The tallest, highest bungee jump in the world. 6 seconds of unadulterated freefall from the 11th tallest building in the world. It doesn’t come cheap but it grants you automatic bragging rights forever. With the ‘right’ conditions you can find yourself stretching to just 30m from the ground.

PRICE: $300

Volcano Bungee near Pucon, Chile (250m/820 feet):

The price isn’t exactly backpacker friendly but basically, you get flown up to an active volcano in a helicopter, soaring some 10,000 feet in the air, jumpers sit perched on a helicopter’s skid and then you have to bungee jump off the helicopter into the caldera towards the molten lava. The cord stretches between 350 and 375 feet. Thereby leaving jumpers hanging just 700 feet above the volcano. Pretty amazing stuff.

PRICE: A disgustingly, prohibitively expensive $9,995 for a 6-day package

Honourable mentions:

The Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado (321m/1053 feet):

Technically, it can be considered the highest bungee in the world. But very few people have ever jumped from the bridge. It’s not open commercially and therefore disqualified from the ‘best bungee jumps in the world’ list. It’s not open to the public and it’s only available every now and again. Often used to break records sporadically.

PRICE: Unavailable to the general public. Booooooo.

River Nevis, New Zealand (134m/440 feet)

If you’re on the backpacking trail in New Zealand, a bungee jump over the roaring River Nevis is not to be missed. From a teetering cable car, high over the Nevis River, you enter the jump pod and soak in the rugged scenery. This is the highest bungee jump spot in all of New Zealand. The freefall lasts for almost 9 seconds and will allow those who jump to see the full extent of this area’s beauty.

  5. Hi Jhony !!

    I appreciate your hardwork compiling such a complex data, but i realized you missed few of other great places like – The Last Resort, Nepal – 525 ft (160 m), Perrine Bridge, USA – 486 ft (148 m)and Niouc, Switzerland – 623 ft (190 m.

    Many Thanks

  6. I went to New Zealand for a couple weeks this summer and was fortunate enough to jump 3 times. Once at “The Ledge” in Queenstown and then a buy-1-get-1-jump-free in Auckland. I wish my sister and I weren’t so nervous about jumping or we would have definitely done the Nevis. But we only had 2 days left in NZ, so we rushed up to The Ledge, which is an amazing bungee for first-timers. You are allowed to do a running start, preventing you from thinking too much, and you’re treated to an incredible view of one of the most beautiful areas in the world. The Auckland Bridge jump was also incredible because you have the choice of being dipped into the Pacific Ocean below, which is one of the most unique rushes ever. I have never entered the water and been pulled out of the water that fast in my life. I definitely need to try some of these high jumps though! Skydiving and Bungee Jumping are expensive hobbies, but definitely worth every cent.

  7. Nice one 🙂 I’m one of the priveledged few to have jumped off the Royal Gorge Bridge (first woman ever, actually) and yes Versazca is also right up there – recommend doing it on one of the Full Moon night sessions.

  8. Hey Johnny

    Just catching up on your blogs and seen this. It was so weird, my friends and I done our bungee jump in Scotland on the same day that poor girl’s news was on the tv. I definitely want to do the canyon swing over the Victoria Falls…added to my bucket list and New Zealand as well. My first bungee was in Phuket and I now have a taste for it. Thanks, I really enjoyed reading this.

    1. hey kimmi, i’ve done a couple now – still terrified! i think my bungee days are over 😛 i saw the canyong swing when i was at Vic falls, i bungeed instead – so scary!

  9. I’ve only done one of these – the Nevis in NZ – but I’d totally do the others! After 3 bungy jumps, I’m definitely addicted.

    1. u did the one in Nevis? Where were the other two? i’ve done two and was so terrified i’ll probably never do it again! 😛

  10. nice! never did it, but I’m definitely having 2nd thoughts of doing it in a 3rd world country after that incident with the girls bungee breaking!
