The Adrenaline Junkie’s Guide to the Best Adventure activities in South Africa

South Africa is a gold mine for those seeking adventure and thrill. With the rugged mountains, glorious rivers and waterfalls accompanied by the sound of a mighty roar, you cannot help but fall in love with this country. Looking to do something reckless? Here are a few suggestions.

Bungee Jumping

If you ask South Africans about the best place to jump off of, they will immediately give a resounding answer of “Bloukrans”. Why? It just happens to be the highest commercial bungee jump from a bridge in the world. Plunge into the 216m gorge and see the stunning nature from an upside down perspective, that’s if you can keep your eyes open.
