Leap into a heart-pumping South African adventure safari

It goes without saying that South Africa is a renowned adventure destination. In fact, it’s one of the best in the world! Imagine the stories you could tell after surfing down the Dragon Dune in Mossel Bay or hiking up the mighty Drakensberg mountains!

The first adventure you can embark on is hot air ballooning over the Magaliesberg mountains. Watch the balloon get prepared from the pavilion by a professional crew before you take off to the skies. During this time you will be offered hot coffee, fresh biscuits or muffins. There is a wide selection of packages you can choose, making it suitable for the lone adventurer or family fun.

For those who want to stay grounded and still experience the thrill of adventure, consider canoeing down the Orange River. The Orange River winds through a bold assortment of topography, which includes some stunning mountain ranges as you meander your way to the Atlantic Ocean. Why not continue your adventure safari by hiking along the Garden Route – South Africa’s best-kept secret. While the scenery might force you to stop and gawk for more than a few moments, it’s still an adventure worth exploring. The Otter Trail is the perfect place to start your Garden Route expedition.  

Now that you’re relaxed, let’s increase your heart rate a bit.

Feel the numbness of your feet as you look down the Bloukrans Bridge jumping platform, the world’s highest commercial bungee. The bridge is 216m high and you will experience a drop of 170m. Just another thrilling activity you can find along the Garden Route. If you’re in Johannesburg, get the same thrill at the Orlando Towers in Soweto for that urban thrill ride!

This is the ideal place on the continent to overcome your fears. Live a little, get a glimpse of flying and become a free-spirited adventurist. Whether you’re with a group of friends or are simply flying solo.

If you’re looking to play in the ultimate outdoor playground, South Africa will have your heart pumping and your soul soaring at every turn. See what adventures this country has in store for you!
