Jaime Cheats Death: Jumping the World’s Biggest Gorge Swing and Living to Tell the Tale

While I was in South Africa last month, I got crazy.

Something came over me, I just had to get my adrenaline pumping (or just be the one to not chicken out) when we arrived at the 1,316 foot-deep Oribi Gorge. They wanted us to “gorge swing” but we didn’t want to. But somehow, I managed to make myself do it. It was awesome. Watch the video!

So I did it, I attempted the world’s biggest gorge swing at Oribi Gorge in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, and lived to tell the tale.

Watch the video: Exhiliration! Excitement! And the gorgeous sound of the Lelapa Marimba Band! Then tell me, Do I have a right to call myself a badass? I debated the appropriateness of using that word in my video, but then I was all “Umm, you know what? I AM a badass!” Ha.




As a pseudo mother to you, I cannot bring myself to watch this. It makes my stomach hurt to think about you doing it, but I agree, you are a badass. Love you, but like it better when you keep both feet firmly on the ground ๐Ÿ™‚


Oh wow!! That looks like so much fun!! I don’t think I would have to be convinced… I’d probably go for a running launch ๐Ÿ™‚
Hope the rest of your trip was as exhilarating as the jump. And I think badass is a fantastic term to describe your actions ๐Ÿ˜‰

My hands and feet were sweating as I watched that! You are most definitely a badass! Plus you volunteered to go first which is extra badass!
