Whatever your reasons for visiting South Africa, there are plenty of things to keep you entertained. Your holiday wouldn’t be complete without going to Kruger National Park, so join us at Gold Safari SA by playing one of the country’s leading sports in Kruger Park Lodge. Experience all that the country has to offer by adding these three alternative ideas to your things to do list.
Hot air balloon ride
The best way to make the most of South Africa’s stunning landscape is to take to the air. Book a hot air balloon ride and look out over some of the most break-taking views. Many of South Africa’s leading cities offer hot air balloon flights, and even packages for groups or private tours for couples to celebrate a special romantic occasion.
Enjoy a panoramic view of the South African countryside and cities from above and share it with someone special. Many companies can arrange food or drinks as part of the package so why not treat yourselves to a beautiful trip, with a touch of added luxury. Morning or evening you are guaranteed a fun time.
Go sandboarding on Mount Mayhem
Take the energy levels up a couple of notches and try out one of South Africa’s most exciting sports, sandboarding. Mount Mayhem in Boksburg is the perfect spot for this extreme sport. Equipment and lessons are all included in the ticket cost.
There are sand dunes to accommodate all levels of experience so if you’re not feeling comfortable with the highest dunes, start off slowing before picking up the speed. The highest dune can reach a record two kilometres for those daring enough! Don’t forget to pack suitable clothing and shoes, and some snacks to replenish your energy afterwards.
Visit a traditional market
(via Retail Business 360)
Experience South African culture by entering the heart of it: traditional markets. With markets set up across South Africa, in smaller villages as well as large cities, see, smell and hear part of the country’s vibrant culture.
Market-goers can find an assortment of goods, from food and drink, to clothing, jewellery, and homeware or gifts. Indulge in locally produced traditional dishes of South Africa from gourmet chefs and speciality cooks, to regional farmers and bakers. Try out all of the latest fashion trends, or buy something to take home with you to remember your trip.
