The 'Absolutely Fabulous' way to explore Cape Town   by Bronwen E. Roberts

Adrenalin Junkies! Have you always wanted to try something different and exciting and perhaps a little adventurous too...?? Now you have the perfect opportunity. Select your activity of choice and live your dream!

Hot air ballooning in South AfricaHelicopter Heroics

See the Cape Peninsula and Table Mountain range from a different perspective... feel like a movie star in La Dolce Vita.

Up...Up...and Away...

In my beautiful balloon! Drift across vineyards, farmlands and the awesome mountainous scenery, breathlessly beautiful and peaceful from a magical hot-air balloon. Make sure you bring the best champagne.

Mountain Biking Mania

Hire a bike for an adventure of dirt roads, drop offs and exhilarating single track. There are so many selected trails on offer. 

Ride the Plank...Surfing.

You can hire a surfboard, wetsuit and teacher for a fun-filled morning of surfing in Muizenberg. Have lunch at a local restaurant, and then experience art & culture in this seaside village.

Eagle's Eye - Tandem Paragliding

Experience the eagle's playground... Break free from this earthbound existence...feel the wind against your face and ride the heat thermals...!! Licensed paragliders will take you on an incredible, almost spiritual experience.

Other Cape Town attractions to investigate:

Open Water Kayaking, White Water Rafting and Kayaking, Caving, Kite Surfing, Bungee Jumping, Adventure Sports and Scuba Safaris.

Culture Adventures of Africa:

'Beat the Djembe'

Communal drumming has been an integral part of African life for thousands of years as a means of celebrating life, love and unity. A guaranteed stress-buster, modern-day drumming is a great way to let loose, have fun and invigorate your mind. Rhythm is a universal language, and drumming creates a unity that transcends the barriers of culture, gender, age, religion, and hierarchy.

Join the euphoria of playing in a drum circle and create music lead by trained facilitators. Soon you and your companions will be weaving a pattern of sound as your hands pound the skins. Discover real African Roots!

Afterwards, quench your thirst with umqomboti beer and sit down to a real African feast with the background sounds of a Marimba Band. Later in the evening traditional Gold Miners set your feet stomping with their Gumboot Dancing.

Marimba in the Township

Embrace Africa with an interactive adventure into music and culture! Your experience begins in Langa Township, where Dizu 'Zungulu' Plaatjies formed the famous Amampondo band in 1979. Amampondo, which means 'the people of Mpondo', the fabled land of the Xhosa Kingdom in the Eastern Cape, was founded with a strong desire to preserve and protect South African traditional music and to carry traditional sounds into the future.

You will be inspired by the enthusiasm and natural rhythm of a young marimba band at play (marimba means 'wood that sings'), and when it's your turn, enjoy personalized instruction from a teacher. You can visit an art centre and gain insight into the history and culture of the Xhosa people. Relax and enjoy a traditional lunch in an unusual township restaurant, where you can experience lively interaction with local people.

You could complete your day with something you've never done before! Participate in a workshop offered by a community project showcasing local art and craft using wire, tin, beads and metal - all imbued with the spirit of Africa.
