  • Adventure travel in Africa

    There are tons of way to travel, and no two travelers will have the same experience at the same destination, because how your trip turns out to be depends on the traveler, their preferences and their needs. But no matter how differently people might perceive a destination, when it comes to the vast African continent, adventure usually comes to mind.

    Such a diverse part of the globe as Africa, with all its different countries and cultures are a gold mine for travelers looking for cultural experiences, but the continents natural wonders and astounding wealth of wildlife make it a haven for adventurers. So here’s a short guide to adventure travel in Africa, to open up your appetite.

    Kruger National Park, South Africa

    If for you adventure implies getting (sometimes dangerously) close to wild animals which are not exactly famous for being friendly, then Kruger National Park, one of the biggest wild game reserves in Africa, is the perfect destination for you. Elephants, lions, cheetahs and other species large and small live in the park, and you can observe them from the safe distance afforded by a safari car. If large animals are not your thing, then you can go birdwatching – there’s an amazing number of bird species in the park!

    Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Botswana/Namibia

    Straddling the border between Botswana and Namibia is the vast Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, comprising Kalahari National Park and Gemsbok Nationa Park. Since much of the park is located in the southern part of the Kalahari desert, the name of the park, Kgalagadi, the place of thirst, is very appropriate, but still, an incredible number of species roam the park.

    You can stay at one of the three traditional tourist lodges where you can find all sorts of comforts, or the wilderness camps where only the bare minimum is provided.

    Shark Cage Diving, South Africa

    There’s probably nothing more scary, crazy and adventurous than diving into the sea and meeting the great white sharks face to face, and surviving the meeting with all your limbs intact. A meeting the most dangerous creature of the ocean is conducted, obviously, in the utmost safesty.There are several tour companies offering ‘shark meetings’, and Gansbaai village is one of the most popular places for such encounters.

    Camel Safari

    Traditional safaris usually imply that you are sitting comfortably in a big car, making only eye contact with the creatures of the wild. But a more interesting way to trek through the untamed wild is to sit on the back of a camel, and making your way at a slow, leisurely way through a national park.

    Camel safaris in Kalahari are quite common, although you won’t be seeing many predators, since the safety of the camel, as well as yours, would be at stake.
