Adventure Activities in South Africa

South Africa is home to sunny skies, mountains, rivers and an expansive coastline that wraps around the country with the Atlantic Ocean on its west coast to the warm Indian Ocean on its east coast. Her terrain ranges from sandy desert to palm-tree tropical with mountain-top heights and everything in between. South Africa is an idyllic adventure activity playground.

Whether your activity interests tend to the urban or rural or whether your passion is for land, water or air pursuits, South African adventure operators have something for you.

As few activities are limited to adults only, most are family-friendly and accommodate children above a certain age (for their safety). This makes it easy to incorporate activities into family holidays.

Offerings are also not only limited to the major metropolitan areas. You'll find a smorgasbord to choose from even in middle-of-nowhere towns.

South Africa is a relatively small country where no location is too far away to drive to or that cannot be reached by a short flight for those adventure activities that you've always dreamt of doing.

From river rafting and hot-air ballooning to skydiving and slackpacking.

Browse our extensive directory for listings of adventures available throughout South Africa and the Kingdoms of Swaziland and Lesotho, which lie within South Africa.
