Activities In South Africa

As one of the best big game countries in the world there is no shortage of activities in South Africa that will blow you away with amazing sights and sounds. Safaris take many shapes and forms and these include the traditional 4x4 jeep safari whilst more unique safaris such as a hot air balloon ride, hiking safari, biking, canoeing and mountaineering offer a new way to enjoy the national parks.

One of the best activities in South Africa is golfing, just mind the giraffes! Adventures into the blue put you in an amazing position to view dolphins and white sharks and more of nature can be enjoyed on a canoe or raft adventure down the Orange River. More unusual pursuits such as ostrich riding and taking a swim with the penguins will make South Africa one of those destinations you will never forget.

Surfing is also a popular activity in South Africa and the Cape Peninsula provides the perfect conditions whilst more relaxed pursuits include hiking, enjoying a spa treatment or taking a luxury train ride on board the famous Blue Train that runs from Cape Town on a 27 hour journey of 5-star luxury and 5-course dinners.

South Africa is incredibly large and diverse so our travel experts have never been more valuable a source of information and they will take care of every wish, simply complete our enquiry form on the right.
