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.
No reason for a long face if you are a horse riding fanatic. Again you’ll have different terrain to choose from and but one of the favorites would be riding on the beach in Jeffreys Bay.
Sandboarding is a very 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!
If you would like to master the art of Kiteboarding why not go for some lessons in this exhilarating and still fast growing sport. If you are already a master, travel with your own gear or rent some for a rip.
