Add a thrill or three to your holiday experience
There are plenty of adventure experiences you can have across South Africa. Here are some tips for getting your holiday adrenaline going:
Exciting Cape capers
Enjoy an ethical shark tour and stare into the eyes of this predator while safely in a cage.
Or paraglide off Signal Hill, skydive out over the winelands or taking a microlight flight to get an unparalleled view of the Cape’s sprawling beauty.
Other adventure ideas close by include ziplining, abseiling down Table Mountain’s front face, a Harley-Davidson tour or even eating something you’ve never tried before at one of Cape Town’s renowned restaurants.
Desert, sky and adventure
Road trip up to majestic Namibia, stopping along the small West Coast towns.
The desert city of Walvis Bay is a great base from which to explore the local attractions, including the Namib Naukluft Park, the largest conservation area in Namibia.
Adventure activities like quad biking, sand surfing to 4×4 cruises in the dunes are always available. There are also boat cruises, kayaking, skydiving, horse riding, go karting, camel and township tours to experience. Or leave the road and take to the skies for a scenic flight.
The bold outdoor world of Gauteng and surrounds
Discover the Lowveld in a hot air balloon or visit an ethically operated game farm where you can encounter Big Five and many more.
Acrobranch in Melrose and Centurion is a fun way to explore treetop canopies. Other adventure activities include archery, bungee jumping at the Orlando Towers, caving (spelunking), paintballing, gyrocopter flight, kayaking and horse riding.
