ADVENTURE    PURSUITS

Southern Africa has ample adventure pursuits to satisfy the wildest tastes. Elephant back, horse back, canoeing or walking safaris are available in various wildlife areas.

Hot air ballooning, a favourite way of viewing the Sossusvlei dunes, is also available in Bulawayo or South Africa.

Helicopter flights offer an unrivalled view over the Cape region or the Panorama Route between Johannesburg and the Lowveld. For that extra special occasion, we can arrange a champagne picnic at a secluded and normally inaccessible spot en route to your destination. An unbeatable way to view the Victoria Falls is from the sky, by helicopter, light aircraft or sea plane.

The mighty Zambezi River opens the doors to adventure pursuits, from white water rafting on the Grade 5 rapids below the Falls (Grade 6 is considered commercially unrunable) to the more relaxed wine route tours above the Falls and white water canoeing. A new option is white water boarding (definitely not for the faint-hearted and for strong swimmers only) - brave the rapids of the Zambezi equipped only with a helmet, wetsuit, and surfboard, accompanied by experienced guides.

Downstream, the Mana Pools offer a range of exciting canoeing and walking trails - buffalo act as diversions, crocodiles are your yields and hippos are your stop signs. As your canoe drifts slowly along, enjoy some relaxed viewing in this game rich area. Canoe and walking trails range from luxury to the more adventurous.

Overland safaris ranging from luxury accommodated to fully serviced or participation camping are also available for those preferring to travel with a small group. Overlands are conducted in specially adapted vehicles which vary according to the terrain to be covered, under the leadership of highly qualified and knowledgeable guides, from whom you will gain a special insight into the areas covered. These are generally recommended for the under-60's age group as road conditions can be bad, distances great and the heat unforgiving.
