Adventurous holidays and safaris in South Africa

Adventure travel in South Africa is nothing new. From incredible wildlife experiences, to extreme sports, to fascinating cultures and world-class trekking, each corner of the country has something to offer the adventure travel enthusiast.

The country's most famous sights are often bucket list destinations; iconic Table Mountain, renowned Kruger National Park, thrilling Cape Point, dramatic Drakensberg Park and the arid Kalahari. In each terrain there's another type of wildlife to be seen, more incredible photos to be taken and a better adventure to be had.

As well as game drives, exemplary walking safaris are not to be missed. Other wildlife encounters include the best whale watching in the world in Hermanus and visiting the penguin colonies on the cape.

Trekking in the Drakensberg Mountains and in Mpumlanaga will afford some of the best views of your life, including from the famed Pilgrim's Rest and God's Window. The wilderness in the UNESCO World Heritage Drakensberg Mountains is true, and you will for sure feel like a real explorer.
