Adventure seekers in Gauteng will be thrilled to hear that there is an Adventure for every day of the year right here in the highveld.

This busy province might be South Africa’s smallest, but don’t let that fool you. As an adventurer you are spoiled for choice in and around the busiest urban areas of South Africa. Johannesburg and Pretoria are conveniently located in close vicinity to a growing list of Adventure Activities so spending the weekend in the city is no longer a problem.

Within the metropolitan areas you can go bungee jumping from Orlando Towers in Soweto, cycle through the inner city of Johannesburg, test your driving skills in a race car in the Midrand, try a trip on a segway or aim high at one of the archery shooting ranges. For something new, how about clay pigeon shooting or dragon boat racing.

As you leave the city limits, more adventures await. Take a helicopter flight above the mountain range of the Magaliesberg, hike through the veld or catch a birds-eye-view of the scenery from a zip line.

The Hartbeespoort Dam with its panoramic views of the Magaliesberg and the Vaal River in the southern part of the province offer water enthusiasts ample opportunity to test their skills with a paddle on a stand up paddleboard (SUP) or in a kayak. More mellow adventurers test their fly fishing skills or catch trout in rivers and dams. 

Explore the area of the Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on a quad bike and then pay a visit to the Sterkfontein Caves where finding the 2,3 million year old fossil, affectionately named ‘Mrs Ples’, gave archeologists insight into our distant relatives. 

Looking for a morning that you will remember for a lifetime? A hot air balloon adventure will take you riding on a gentle breeze, across the highveld, taking in the scenery below. The journey ends with a sumptuous breakfast and a glass of bubble to celebrate the completion of a perfect adventure.

The list of what to do in Gauteng is endless and many operators organize adventures all around South Africa and further afield so the hardest part of your adventure will be to choose your activity.
