Table Mountain, beaches and a beautiful sunset, Cape Town has it all and is deservedly called one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Cape Town is definitely a holiday destination for anybody seeking relaxation or adventure.
There are plenty of resorts, hotels and self-catering accommodation available that anybody can find their perfect match.

You can go on beach horse rides, helicopter rides, tours and loads more.
Soar above the beautiful Cape Town coastline with the most experienced paragliding pilots from Skywings,  Cape Town Tandem Paragliding. They fly mainly from Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, with the beautiful Table Mountain in the background. This is an experience of a life time.

The Drakensberg:
The Drakensberg is a beautiful, scenic series of mountain peaks and forms the border of Kwazulu-Natal and Lesotho. The Drakensberg is a favourite holiday destination for both locals and International guests and offers many adventure holiday experiences. A few ideas to consider are a 4×4 adventure, offering natural obstacles, steep slopes and various other obstacles that will challenge the 4×4 enthusiast.
The fantastic unobstructed views of the Drakensberg should be enjoyed at its best by experiencing a paragliding adventure. Tandem paragliding can be done by all ages and abilities and you can relax with the experienced instructors who will take you through the whole process. Wildsky paragliding located in Bulwer, Natal offers safe and enjoyable tandem flights from their location where they also have a backpacker’s lodge set at the foot of the Bulwer Mountain.
More adventure ideas, include quad biking, paint ball, mountain biking, river rafting, rock climbing and much. Plenty of accommodation choices are available to suite your budget, so planning your next adventure holiday to the Drakensberg should be easy.
The Garden Route :
The Garden Route has no shortage in various activities and accommodation; because of the milder climate it makes the garden route a year round destination. Some of the various activities available include abseiling, beach horse rides, bike tours, boat trips, bungee jumping canoeing and loads more.
One of the activities that caught my attention was Blokart sailing, something new to me. The ‘cart’ consists of a light and compact three wheel buggy that has a sail; anybody can fit into the sling like seat. Your legs are stretched out in front of you, grabbing onto the steering bar and sheet rope you can set off along the beach. An inexperienced person only needs about 5 minute’s instruction on the controls and safety and you can then be on your way.
The Garden Route and Wilderness offers sweeping and beautiful beaches and mountain settings all best viewed on a paragliding adventure. This is a fun and simple way to enjoy flying and flying tandem anybody can experience this unique sport. Here are some companies that offer paragliding tours in the Garden route; Dolphin paragliding, Cloudbase paragliding and Flytime paragliding to name a few.
