Hot air balloon safari flight over the Masai Mara 

Want a unique perspective of the expansive Savannah grasslands and wildlife? Try a hot air balloon ride! The balloon takes off at the break of dawn and glides silently so you can observe and photograph the variety of wildlife. 

The flight is an hour long and ends with a Champagne Bush Breakfast at the balloon landing site in the wilderness. Space is usually limited to a maximum of 16 passengers per balloon or fewer if flying with a smaller basket. 


Bungee Jump off the Bloukrans Bridge 

Are you an adrenaline junkie? Then you can’t miss the highest bridge bungee jump in the world! (Don’t worry, they have a 100% safety record!) You arrive at the jump point via zipline and walk along a metal grill walkway to the platforms, where a 200-meter drop to the river awaits you. This is the ultimate adrenaline rush!


Sandboarding in Swakopmund, Namibia 

Still want an adrenaline rush but would rather keep your feet on the ground? Swakopmund’s towering sand dunes are the perfect terrain to try sandboarding, offering six different slopes and two styles to choose from (lying down head first on your board or standing and surfing your way down!).  Either way, you’ll be speeding through the sand at speeds close to 50 mph! 


Wine Tastings in Stellenbosch

Bring out your inner sommelier by exploring the African Winelands and taking a wine-tasting tour! Stellenbosch alone has over 150 wine estates in the area, many of which also have amazing restaurants to dine at on-site. You can book private or group, full or half-day tours. Afterward, you can take a trip into town where you’ll be greeted with captivating boutiques, cafes, and art galleries.

It’s no wonder this park remains one of the most famous safari destinations in the world, giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Africa’s Big Five: Lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and African buffalo, all in one day!
