Dive with the ultimate ocean predator in the world capital of great white sharks – Gansbaai in South Africa.

The ultimate adrenaline rush with the best views of Robben Island and Table Mountain. After a short flight to 9000ft, your tandem pilot will shuffle you out into the open sky. After several long seconds of free fall, the parachute will open to the most peaceful place in this world.
After a poll of 45,000 readers in the 2018 Telegraph Travel Awards, Cape Town was named the Greatest City in the World for the sixth year running. Take a tour of the Mother City in a helicopter and see Table Mountain, Camps Bay and the Cape Peninsula from a bird’s eye view.
Enjoy the zipline canopy tour in the company of soaring eagles, surrounded by breath-taking Cape fynbos panoramas and mountainscapes. Located in the pristine World Heritage sight at the Hottentot Holland Nature Reserve. Voted as the 2nd best activity in Africa on by TripAdvisor in 2019.
See the African Big 5 only 2,5 hours from Cape Town on a one-day safari or two-day overnight safari. These reserves offer luxury accommodation with game drives without having to travel out of the Western Cape.
