Quad biking

We’ll start off with the least terrifying experience to lull you into a false sense of security.  South Africa’s dry climate means there are plenty of sand dunes perfect for racing quad bikes around.  Jump on a quad bike and experience South Africa’s beautiful landscapes as you speed up and down the bumpy dunes.

Shark cage diving

Not for the faint-hearted there are plenty of places offering travelers the unforgettable experience of swimming amongst great white sharks.  Of course you’re not going to dodging their razor sharp teeth, you’ll be safely locked into a little metal cage and then dropped down into the middle of the ocean with them, not at all scary…

Bungee jump from the world’s highest bungee bridge

Did you know that South Africa is home to the world’s highest bungee bridge?  Bloukrans Bridge is about 800 ft high and if you want to you can leap from the top of it!  That’s one way to make your South African adventures memorable!

Sky diving

If Bloukran’s Bridge isn’t high enough for you then why not try a sky dive? View South Africa from 5,000 ft and then jump from an aeroplane with a parachute strapped to your back.  If there’s one surefire way to get an adrenaline rush then surely this must be it?!
