Adventure holidays in South Africa

“Adventure” means different things to different people – and in a country as vast and diverse as South Africa, it really does take on many different forms. Self drive tours give you a real sense of freedom on your adventure holiday in South Africa – while camping really immerses you in the African bush, surrounded by wildlife. Stay with Zulu communities or learn to surf; and come face to face with the Big Five in Kruger – or with great white sharks off the Cape Town coast.
