With its idyllic climate and outdoor lifestyle, Africa’s people are naturally drawn to adventure sports and are waiting to share the fun with you.
If your adventure-seeking spirit is looking for its next adrenalin fix, Africa has just the adventure activity to leave you saying, “That was insane!” For hardcore thrill-seekers, try extreme activities such as shark cage diving, bungy-jumping, abseiling off Table Mountain, white water rafting, sky-diving, mountain climbing, kloofing, paragliding, boardsailing and kite surfing, sea kayaking, scuba diving, ziplining, quadbiking, spear fishing or sandboarding. And then there is the ultimate challenge – climbing Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.
If your nature-loving spirit is wanting to recharge itself, Africa has the perfect outdoor activity to leave you saying, “That was cool!” Outdoor sports on offer include: hiking, mountain biking, surfing, horse-riding, overland cycling, sailing and water skiing. There are less energetic options too: horseback game viewing, snorkelling, angling, walking safaris, birdwatching, hot air ballooning and pony trekking.
Whether you are young or old, there’s an adventure option within your fitness range. An adventure activity can be part of a general sight-seeing programme, or you can make thrill-seeking the main focus of your entire holiday.
Most adventure companies belong to self-regulating organisations that determine minimum safety requirements and maintain high standards of professionalism.
