Adventures in South Africa

The buzz word in world travel today is adventure, and there is a wide range of exciting adventures in South Africa for visitors to indulge in. If you can dream it, we have it here waiting for you (see also Real Action).

Rail Safaris

Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe Steam Train

Join us on an unforgettable experience travelling on one or more of South Africa's many restored steam train routes - from the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe to the luxury of a Rovos Rail trip from Cape Town to Victoria Falls, we guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Exploring South Africa by narrow-gauge railway is a rare opportunity. Don't miss it!

Shark Diving in Cape Town, South Africa

Humpback Whale & White Shark

For one of the most exciting adventures in South Africa that you can embark on, let us arrange Great White Shark diving just outside Cape Town. Visit to face your fears and learn more about this misunderstood, fascinating and endangered creature of the sea.

Whale watching around the South African Coast is arguably the most accessible in the world - you don't even have to go out in a boat to be awed by these gentle giants of the sea. A whale watching holiday is a perfect way to appreciate South Africa's natural beauty and wildlife. We can organise whale viewing tours in Hermanus, breeding ground of the Southern Right Whale. Every year in September this tiny town hosts the renowned Hermanus whalefestival, an event not to be missed.

South Africa has supported the moratorium on whale hunting from the beginning and has been rewarded by an ever-increasing number of whales visiting our shores to mate and calve.

More than 250 species of fish can be caught in South Africa's rivers, lakes and oceans through fly, line, game or rock surf fishing.

For the game fisherman, a fishing trip to South Africa is filled with variety. The nutrient rich waters of the Western Cape, where the cool Atlantic and warm Indian Oceans meet, give rise to a high concentration of game fish, including tuna and marlin. The rocky coastlines offer amazing rock surf fishing and shore angling opportunities. South Africa 's pristine rivers, dams and lakes offer a multitude of diverse environments for excellent trout and bass fishing, from the Outeniqua Mountains of the Garden Route, to the Eastern Cape, the Drakensberg and Mpulumanga.

Let us know what makes you tick and we will put together your ultimate fishing trip in South Africa.

Where else in the world can you experience the wonder of the kelp forests, underwater reserve trails, shipwreck diving trails and subtropical coral reef diving all in the same country? If you want to do it all in the same trip, check out our Dive Safari page for further details.

These are just a taste of the many activities you can enjoy in our beautiful and diverse country. Once we know your interests and how much time you have to spare, we can tailor-make the ideal adventure holiday for you.
