In what seems to be the perfect opportunity to check off a bucket list adventure activity, Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has been challenged by South African Tourism to bungee jump off the world’s highest bungy bridge – Bloukrans Bridge. Akshay is in Cape Town with his family for their annual vacation to ring in the New Year, where they will also be celebrating Mrs. Funnybones’ birthday. This annual visit to the Mother City sure won’t be an ordinary one for Akshay!
Extending the unique challenge, South African Tourism tweeted,
“Hey @akshaykumar, here’s a Khiladi style idea to give @mrsfunnybones a memorable birthday! We’re inviting you to experience the thrill of taking a leap off the world’s highest bridge bungee at Bloukrans. Will you take the plunge?”
The highest commercial bridge bungee jump in the world at the Bloukrans Bridge has a 216-meter gorge below. It is one of the ultimate activities to feature on any adrenaline seeker’s bucket list while visiting South Africa. The growing popularity is evident by the fact that 5000 Indians attempted the Bloukrans bungee in the last year. In fact, Indians are the top 2nd nationality to bungee jump off the Bloukrans Bridge.
Let’s wait with bated breaths to see Akshay’s reaction to this.
