Project Summary:

This documentary series will feature exhilarating journey to the world's premier bungee jump locations, blending adrenaline-pumping thrills with profound cultural immersion.

 

We will highlight the best bungee locations from North America to Africa.  From a 100 foot bridge that involves a 5 mile trek crossing rushing rivers to 10,000 feet over an active volcano.  

 

From the lush landscapes of New Zealand to the towering peaks of the Swiss Alps, the narrative unfolds as a series of adrenaline-fueled adventures intertwined with deep cultural explorations.

 

The journey will feature Queenstown, New Zealand, where the iconic Kawarau Bridge beckons thrill-seekers to take the plunge into the crystal-clear waters below. Amidst the breathtaking scenery of the South Island, readers discover the rich Maori heritage and the significance of bravery and resilience in Maori culture.

 

Next, the expedition ventures to the remote island nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, where ancient rituals of land diving have inspired modern bungee jumping. Readers witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of villagers leaping from towering wooden towers, gaining insight into the spiritual beliefs and traditions of the Ni-Vanuatu people.

 

In South Africa, readers confront their fears atop the iconic Bloukrans Bridge, the highest commercial bungee jump in the world. Against the backdrop of the rugged Western Cape, they encounter the diverse cultures of South Africa, from the rhythms of Zulu dance to the traditions of the Xhosa people.

We will go to Switzerland, where the engineering marvel of the Verzasca Dam provides a stunning backdrop for bungee jumping amidst the snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps. Here, readers gain an appreciation for Swiss precision and craftsmanship, as well as the country's deep connection to nature and the environment.

The Grand finale will feature a historic jump with a scenic backdrop that will be broadcast LIVE.  (The location is a surprise.) 

This will be a  captivating blend of adrenaline-fueled adventure and cultural discovery, inviting readers to explore the world's best bungee jump locations while gaining a deeper understanding of the diverse cultures and traditions that define each destination.
