Southern Africa – A Playground for Adrenaline Lovers
Southern Africa is the ideal destination for travellers wanting to satisfy their inner adrenaline junkie. From shark-cage diving to racing ostriches or bungee jumping, the region offers some of the most popular destinations for adrenaline-packed extreme sports activities.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Zambia
Operators, including Shearwater Adventures and Livingstone’s Adventure and Wild Horizons, offer a broad array of activities, from elephant-back bush tours to aerial sightseeing trips over the Falls via helicopter and bungee jumping.
The mighty Zambezi River also offers a wide variety of extreme sports options.
A range of thrilling rafting programmes are available throughout the year. Says Jo Stallmann, Owner of Bundu Adventures: “Rafting on the Zambezi is unique as it offers some of the best rafting on the planet. Nowhere else do you have as many Grade 5 rapids in one day as in the Batoka Gorge of the Zambezi River, just below the Victoria Falls.”
Travellers who want to take it up an extra notch can also try their hand at ‘Extreme Fishing’ – a combination of white-water rafting and fishing.
