South Africa Adventure 

Whatever your craving for adventure, earth, sea or sky, South Africa can satisfy it. They have world-class climbing, surfing, diving, hiking, horseback safaris, mountain biking, river rafting and a host of other adventures to satisfy even the most demanding adrenaline junkies.

River trips range from mostly scenic to grade five whitewater washing machines. South Africa has fantastic rivers, so you'll be spoiled for choice. The most popular, for good reason, is the Orange, which forms the country's northern border with Namibia. It's a long, green-fringed oasis running through the mountainous desert area known as the Richtersveld. Incredibly scenic, it also has a few fun rapids. Fantastic technical rapids and wonderful scenery, are offered by the Palmiet River which runs through the Kogelberg Nature Reserve.

Paragliding Photograph copyright: South African TourismThere are over a hundred listed paragliding or hang gliding launch sites, opportunities for helicopter rides, balloon flights, aerobatics, skydiving and microlight flights. You will find loads of excellent ridge soar and some fantastic scenic flying near the coast. In Cape Town, you can launch off Lion's Head in the evening, flying into the sunset, to land 'Bond-like' at one of the popular beachfront pubs!

Hiking Photograph copyright: South African TourismLiterally thousands of kilometres of hiking and mountain bike trails wind around this big country, across desert, forest, mountain and coast.
Mountain Biking Photograph copyright: South African TourismAround Cape Town there are some great single-track routes on the mountain and in the pine plantations. There are escorted trips on the mountain, around the winelands and in the Cape Point section of the Cape Peninsula National Park. South Africa also offers some wonderful easy horse trails through vineyards, on the beach or in the mountains and, for the adventurous and more experienced, horseback safaris in big game country.
