Thinking of Durban, or Durbs as us South Africans refer to the seaside city affectionately, has always brought back happy holiday memories for me. The city has always been a December favourite for South Africans, and after the 2010 FIFA World Cup two years ago, it’s received a lot more attention from international visitors.
If you’re thinking about coming to South Africa to try out adventure activities, you’ll need somewhere to stay. Here are a few of the backpacker establishments that regularly host adventure travellers.
Every morning in Durban, surfers, body boarders, swimmers and paddlers enter the waters of the Indian Ocean as soon as the sun rises, most often without wetsuits. At the same time, shirtless runners pound the promenade, joined by cyclists, walkers and skaters.
So you thought it was only Table Mountain that boasted a cable car? Well, now you can ride on South Africa’s newest aerial cableway at Hartbeespoort in the Magaliesberg mountains, just under an hour’s drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria.
A couple of weeks ago my friends and I decided to spend the weekend in Magaliesburg, I suppose we were weary of our normal routine. After getting lost and taking numerous wrong turns our 1,5-hour drive turned out to be a 3-hour drive to the area.
Last week I had the pleasure of joining the crew from Walker Bay Adventures for a sea kayaking experience in Hermanus. This involved getting within 40 metres of a Bryde’s whale and even closer to seals and dolphins.
