From adrenalin junkies, adventure seekers to extreme sportsmen. Cape Town and the Garden Route offer an activity for everyone and all levels of difficulty. Hike or bike along the Table Mountain Range around the Cape Peninsula. Surf in one of the many bays or take a bird’s eye view on a paraglide or helicopter tour. Along the Garden Route dare to dive with the sharks or jump of one of the highest bridges. Or simply engage in more hiking, surfing or kayaking along the scenic routes all the way to Jeffrey’s Bay.
One of the highlights of every African holiday is to experience the BIG5 on a safari in their natural habitat. The African Elephant and Buffalo, the Black Rhino, Lions and Leopards can be observed on day safaris not far from Cape Town. Or in many great lodges along the Garden Route, also offering more personal encounters. For a more intensive bush experience, it is worth travelling further than the Garden Route to spend time in the third largest national game park, the Addo Elephant Park. In addition you can view sharks and whales, making it a “big seven” experience.
