South Africa is a melting pot of cultures and a country with beauty beyond comprehension. Locals are spoilt for choice when it comes to adventure activities. If you are headed to the sunny shores of South Africa in search of an adrenaline rush, be sure to check out our top 3 spots for adventures.
Jump from the world’s highest commercial bungy bridge
For most people, looking over the edge of a 216m bridge might be quite enough of a thrill. For others though, throwing themselves off the bridge is a far better pastime. If jumping from exceptional heights sounds like your idea of fun, then a trip to the highest commercial bridge bungy in the world is for you. Located on the border of the Western and Eastern Cape lies the tranquil and majestic Bloukrans River Valley. Get ready for a rush of pure adrenaline as you plunge more than 650 feet down towards the river below.
Abseiling down Table Mountain
You probably know a whole lot about the Table Mountain in Cape Town, but did you know you can abseil right off the edge? With the Atlantic Ocean below you and breathtaking views of Robben Island and Camps Bay, this will be an experience you’ll remember for years to come. The whole process only takes about an hour or so, leaving you with time to do a lot more exploring around the mountain.
Walk on the wild side in the Kruger National Park
A visit to The Kruger National Park should be on every traveler’s bucket list and one of the best ways to experience the wilderness is on foot. So, forget about those luxury game vehicles and exclusive chalets, instead book a guided walking tour with a licensed game ranger. A backpacking tour has to be the ultimate adventure experience guests can have in the park. Guests camp in the African bush in the evenings and depart on foot each morning to track and spot wildlife – of which there’s plenty.
Whether you’re camping and spotting wildlife in the Kruger National Park or abseiling down Table Mountain, you will be blown away by these unforgettable adventure activities in South Africa.
