5 Amazing Adventures You Have to Experience in South Africa

By on July 3rd, 2018

Anyone of us can explore South Africa, but it’s the way we explore the country that makes all the difference. You can hop on a tour and visit Kruger National Park, Table Mountain, Robben Island and the Cango Caves, or you can push the boundaries.

You can explore the wildest traditions, hike the tallest mountains and bungee jump from world record heights while coming home with nothing but amazing memories and crazy stories to tell.

If this sounds like the kind of adventure you want to embrace, here are 5 amazing things to add to your South Africa bucket list:

 

Surf the Waves of Jeffreys Bay

If you haven’t surfed the waves of Jeffreys Bay, you haven’t really surfed. There’s a reason the World Surf League Championships are hosted in Jeffreys Bay year after year. They’re constantly being voted one of the best surf spots in the world. Why not learn from the best? There are a number of surf schools to choose from like Jeffreys Bay Surf School, Wavecrest Surf School, and Surf-JBay.

Hike the Mountains of Drakensberg

If there’s one hiking spot in South Africa you can’t miss, it’s the trails in Southern Drakensberg. There are a number of trails suitable for everyone, you can choose a leisurely stroll or a week-long overnight hiking getaway. The mountains are spectacular, the wildlife is pristine and the views are breathtaking.

Jump off the World’s Tallest Bungy Bridge

The Face Adrenalin Bloukrans Bungy is no secret in South Africa, it is the world’s highest commercial bungy bridge jump and definitely a South African memory you’ll never forget. Even Jack Osbourne, Prince Harry and the contestants on The Amazing Race have checked the Bloukrans Bungy off their adventure lists.

Drink a Joburg Beer in Soweto

If you’re all about having local experiences, drinking a Joburg Beer has definitely got to be on your list of adventures. Lebo’s Soweto Bicycle Tours take you on a journey through the township of Soweto and always make a pit stop to try the Joburg Beer. Joburg Beer is a cloudy beer locally produced and served in buckets and large milk cartons. You’ll likely sit down for a communal beer as the locals like to fill up a bowl of beer and share it amongst the crowd.

Segway Through the Forests of Tsitsikamma

Sure, Segwaying isn’t new, but the opportunity to segway through the Tsitsikamma Forest is something else. After a short training session, you’ll be off exploring beyond Stormsriver Village and into the indigenous forests of Tsitsikamma. If you join in on a Segway tour, you’ll make your way through the village, over the historical Witteklip bridge, and through the remarkable pine forests.
