South Africa is regarded by many as the adventure capital of the world. Imagine experiencing a safari seeing the Big 5 (lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros) in the flesh – this is what childhood dreams are made of. If the Big 5 are on the tame side for you, perhaps consider diving with great white sharks or jumping from one of the highest commercially operated bungee jumps in the world! Yes that is correct – you can do this and more in South Africa (not that we are recommending you swim with sharks or go jumping off 216m bridges – but some people love it!).
