Bloukrans Bungy Jump – 216 metres (World’s Highest Bridge Bungy)

The Bloukrans Bungy Jump is the world’s highest commercial bungy bridge. It is also the highest commercial natural bungy jump in the world. 216 metres (709ft) above the Bloukrans River – ENOUGH SAID!

Bloukrans Bridge Walk

Journey out onto the bridge with the jumpers to witness the spectacle up close and personal. If you don’t want to bungy you can join the jump group on the top of the bridge arch and give your friends that extra bit of support.  The experience of being on the walkway is quite spectacular, with a stunning view of the mouth of the Bloukrans River as it flows into the sea.On the top of the arch, you will get to witness the workings of the world’s highest commercial bungy jump bridge.

Waterfall zip-lining Tours

What makes the Tsitsikamma “Waterfall Zipline Tour” unique is that you have the opportunity to safely slide on a zip line across three beautiful waterfalls surrounded by indigenous trees and plants. This eco-adventure is sure to give you an adrenaline rush, zigzagging across the Kruis River with the wind in your face and the whistle of the pulley on the cable. There are eight slides, of which the longest is 211m, as high as 50 metres (164ft) above the water in some places. Each section presents its own surprises, adventure, wonders and beautiful views.

Canopy zip-lining Tours

The first of its kind in Africa, the canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 meters (98ft) above the forest floor. Most platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2½ to 3 hour tour.

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is still a relatively young sport and gaining participants with great momentum. Learn to SUP with easy, progressive and fun SUP lessons in Cape Town on calm water or in the waves at Muizenberg. You will learn how to safely SUP in waves in the shallow beach break in Muizenberg, internationally recognized ideal spot for learning Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Surfing.

Horse Riding

No reason for a long face if you are a horse riding fanatic. Again you’ll have different terrain to choose from and two of our favorites would definitely be a ride in the mountains at Swellendam or on the beach at Noordhoek, Jeffreys Bay or Chintsa.

Shark Cage Diving

Sharks are some of the most feared creatures on the planet, beautifully streamlined to slip through the ocean with minimum effort. Its immense size, jet black eyes, row upon row of razor sharp teeth and extendable jaws make this these ultimate super predators and, on this day, you get up close and personal! Passengers experience the sharks from a metal cage dropped into the water next to the boat and through excellent surface viewing of the sharks from the boat’s upper deck, getting an all-round view of the sharks, circling and descending. It is the ideal spot to capture some fantastic shark pictures or shoot video footage.

Township Tours

Discover the multicultural side of South Africa and interact with the locals. In District Six forced removals changed the lives of many people. Langa, Gugulethu and Khayelitsha as the largest and fastest growing township in South Africa are all symbols of the New South Africa, caught between old squatter misery and new prosperity. Many are trying to find the balance between squalor and an upbeat lifestyle. There are lots to see and experience in the informal settlements where traditional healers and shebeens add to the rich culture of township life.

Boat Trips

If boat tripping floats your boat there are a few outings to choose from. Take a boat trip to the seal colony on Seal Island in scenic Hout Bay or experience a close encounter with the gentle giants of the ocean on an informative and educational whale watching trip in Hermanus. We can also arrange splendid trips on board a catamaran in Knysna or a luxury yacht in Cape Town.


Sandboarding is a fun adventure sport! All it takes to sandboard is a positive attitude, a board strapped to your feet after a few basic instructions and you will be blasting down a sand dune in no time at all. It’s a board sport similar to snowboarding but takes place in desert areas or coastal areas with beach dunes. You’ll have a few opportunities to rip down some beach dunes in South Africa.

Skydiving and Tandem Skydiving Jumps

Experience free-fall over one of the most scenic drop zones in the world. Start the experience with a short briefing, then enjoy a 20 minute plane flight to 10,000 feet, over the Knysna forests and Plettenberg Bay coastline. The leisurely, scenic plane flight comes to an end and the adrenaline starts to pump as you exit the plane with your Tandem Master and experience the rush of a 35 second free fall at 200km/h!

Paragliding and Tandem Paragliding

Cape Town is one of the most spectacular places in the world to paraglide with astonishing views of Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and the Cape Town area. However, there are many other excellent flying sites all along the Cape coast including Signal Hill, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Franschhoek, Hermanus and all the way down to Wilderness and Sedgefield. Tandem paragliding instructional flights are a great way of getting into paragliding or just experiencing the joy of flight.

Wine Tasting

With some of the best wines in the world being produced just half an hour’s drive from Cape Town, it would be a disgrace not to spend a day sampling some of these fine beverages. The wine country has a long history and strong culture stretching from 1679. It’s hard to decide where to stop for a tasting; one of the 140 estates in the Stellenbosch area, some of the 70 farms in the Paarl district, Franschhoek, Robertson… fortunately we have time for a few and we alter each tour so you can sample more of the varieties you prefer.

Crocodile Cage Diving

This dive at the Cango Wildlife Ranch is a world first and has attracted people from all over the planet. Submerged in water, face to face with giant Nile Crocodiles you get a chance to see these reptiles like you have never before (and probably never will again)

Monkeyland and Birds of Eden

The World’s first free-roaming multi-specie primate sanctuary. Monkeyland offers monkey safaris where you can view the primates in their forest home. Right next door you can visit Birds of Eden, the World’s largest free-flight bird aviary (50metres [164ft] high, covering 23 000 square meters of forest). Birds of Eden houses more than 3,500 specimens of more than 280 species, with the main focus being African birds. The dome covers 2 km of boardwalks. Choose one or combine both experiences.

Whale Watching Charters (in season)

Hermanus has the best land-based whale watching in the world but you can also get closer and in their own environment by doing a whale watching boat trip… an amazing way to experience these ocean giants

Safari – Game Watching

It is well known that Africa has an abundance of wildlife you will find nowhere else on the planet. It is always fun to try and spot the Big Five – Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Rhinos and Buffalo – but there is so much more to see….Have you ever heard about Africa’s ‘Little Five’?  They are (and don’t laugh) the Elephant Shrew, Ant Lion, Rhinoceros Beetle, Buffalo Weaver and Leopard Tortoise. The country has some of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots, with remarkable birdlife, abundant buck, small game and bizarre insects. You will have the opportunity to visit Addo Elephant Park from Jeffreys Bay and tick many of these land animals off our lists. With diving and snorkeling as well as boat trips we can also spot some of the ocean dwellers like dolphins, whales, sharks, turtles and crabs.

Surfing and Surfing Lessons

South Africa is a surf mecca! There are many breaks en-route and whether you choose to travel with your own board or hire on the spot we will be sure to catch some waves. If you have never surfed before and you want to try it, there are more than a few places where lessons are on offer.

Guided Walks and Hikes

Throughout our trip there are beautiful walks, hikes and mountain treks you can explore. River mouths, mountain trails, shopping malls, romantic walks on endless white sand beaches, walking safaris in The Kruger Park… the list goes on. If you talk the walk talk, your feet will stay busy every step of the way 🙂


Explore the magic of our unique coastline with its abundant marine life up close and personal on a kayak in the company of an experienced guide. Glide across sparkling water while enjoying a view of the majestic mountain, sea cliffs and marine life. There are many places to paddle the day away from Simon’s Town in False Bay to enjoying the stunning river estuary in Chintsa or Wilderness.
