There are many reasons for Southern Africa to boast that they have the best adventure activities in the world. In our opinion, the main reason being that they are all hosted by Africans on African soil. Southern Africa has the most affordable outdoor activities and the variety of terrain that can not be match anywhere in the world

On the one side of the continent we have the warm Indian ocean on the other the rich Atlantic.  Our mountains are truly challenging and our deserts are beautiful and remote.  Considering the variety of terrain, our weather is surprisingly mild, which just what you want when spending a lot of time outdoors.
