Travel Activities - Safari Holiday's to Luxury Vacations

With excellent weather, breath-taking scenery and an abundance of amazing flora and fauna, South Africa is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. By means of a variety of activities, South Africans enjoy their natural heritage to the full, inviting visitors to do the same. Many consider hiking to be the best way to truly enjoy some of South Africa’s most picturesque regions, and there is no shortage of carefully planned hiking trails throughout the country designed to showcase the natural wonders of each region.

A wide variety of water sports are enjoyed by locals and international visitors, both inland and along the coast. Choose from scuba diving, surfing, water-skiing, jet-skiing, kayaking, boating, snorkeling, fishing and more. Looking to get the adrenaline pumping? Try crocodile cage diving or shark cage diving for an up close and personal encounter with these natural predators. Prefer getting a bird’s eye view of things? Try hot air ballooning, paragliding, micro-lighting or sky diving. Want to get to grips with things? Try rock climbing or mountaineering.

South Africa's wide range of activities even includes snow skiing – not a sport readily associated with Africa. Other activities to consider include golfing, game viewing, 4x4 driving, horse riding, bungy jumping, abseiling and day trips and tours to places of historical, cultural and natural interest. If watching the action is more your style, why not spend the day at one of South Africa’s premier horse racing tracks. Wagering is legal in South Africa and can be enjoyed at a number of race tracks throughout the country. When shop-aholics need their fix, the malls in South Africa's bigger towns and cities are of a world-class standard. With all the activities on offer, there need never be a dull moment when exploring sunny South Africa.
