South Africa is quickly becoming the go-to place for travellers looking for adventure. With hundreds of exciting activities, there is something for everyone from mountain walks to shark cage-diving.
The main attraction in South African waters is without a doubt the great white shark cage diving. The best time of year to experience shark cage-diving is between April and October. The most popular location to shark cage-dive is Gansbaai, just a 30-minute drive from Hermanus. Visitors will be given a wet suit to put on as the waters are cold. The cage sits above the water line so there is no SCUBA diving, participants will just wear a mask. For those not so keen on getting into the water, the sharks can be observed much clearer from the boat.
On the Garden Route, visitors can also experience a multitude of activities, like an oyster cruise in Knysna, or a self-guided hike through the Garden Route National Park. Other activities include Kayaking down Storms River, canopy zip-ling, or hiking trails in the Tsitsikamma National Park, horseback trips through the forest in The Crags near Plettenberg Bay. The list is endless.
Top selling tips:
- Always try and book at least one half day activity a day for your clients. This gives them a purpose for each day to get up and out, but also allows them half a day free to experience other things they find out about locally.
- For those interested in Bungee Jumping, South Africa is home to the world’s tallest commercial bridge bungee at Bloukrans Bridge near Plettenberg Bay.
