Quench Your Thirst for Adrenaline

South Africa is rich in culture, heritage, history and extreme sports. The country has many brilliant mountain passes, breath-taking coastlines and great attractions within urban settings. It is the perfect playground for adventure seekers globally. Here are some of the best destinations to serve a tantalizing share of adrenaline.

Shark Cage Diving Destinations

SA doesn’t have only one shark cage diving hotspot, but both Mossel Bay and Gansbaai have managed to place themselves on the global map for this nail-biting activity. These two destinations on the South African coast are known for having the highest numbers of Great White Sharks in their waters. While being protected by a cage, humans can come up close to these predators of the ocean.

Visit Suicide Gorge for a Great Kloofing Experience

The Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve which is set between Gordon’s Bay and Grabouw is home to the infamous spot called Suicide Gorge. This destination is very true to its name, and people have lost their lives there in the past. It offers a brilliant experience of cliff jumping, sliding, rock climbing and swimming in the crystal-clear pools in ravines and gorges. Take note; once you have taken your first jump down the canyon, you have to complete it. Turning back isn’t an option.

Bouldering in the Cederberg Mountains

The Cederberg Mountains earned the reputation of being the best bouldering destination in the world. For bouldering no harnesses or ropes are required as participants of any age can climb up the famous Rocklands. The areas have many tracks, and in partnership with Cape Nature, a lot of care is taken to ensure that nature remains untouched.

River Rafting

South Africa has many rivers which don’t only offer some of the most tranquil kayaking experiences, but also some exhilarating white river rafting options. Depending on the time of year, the Orange River which serves as the border between South African and neighbouring Namibia can either be a tranquil stream or ridden with various rapids which is just enough for newbies to get a great feeling of what it is like. Clarens in the Free State is one such destination where white river rafters can experience a full house of thrills.

Baviaanskloof, a Motor Biker’s Dream

Just outside of Port Elizabeth is a small town called Patensie. Patensie is the gateway into the Baviaanskloof. I am taking 4×4 enthusiasts and bikers into a journey of a treacherous mountain pass. Blind corners, thrilling climbs and steep drops are all nestled within the most significant natural beauty of the surroundings. They are delivering a different experience of adrenaline and thrill nestled within tranquillity.

Go-Pro Moments in the Oribi Gorge

Kwa-Zulu Natal is home to the Oribi Gorge. The best way to experience this magnificent gorge is to abseil down the gorge down next to Lehr’s waterfall. At Lehr’s the water tumbles over the cliff to the bottom 110 meters below. Capture every moment of this magnificent beauty on your Go-pro. Indeed a moment to share with the less brave at heart.
