Hippo

Adventure

For the Sport or Adventure Adrenalin traveller, South Africa is the place to play. We have selected the following options to feature, for anything else that interests you please enquire.

Cage diving great white sharks
South Africa was one of the first to protect this amazing apex predator. There are several licensed operators with whom it is possible to view the Great White Shark from the safety of a cage; it is an unforgettable experience to be face to face with the star of the movie “Jaws”. It can be done from Cape Town or in Mossel Bay.

Viewing natural predation, breaching great white sharks
False Bay Cape Town is one of the few places in the world that Great White Sharks can be seen regularly feeding on seals. It is a natural occurrence with no decoys, bait or chum involved. Generally it is only during the winter months that breaching occurs in the bay.

Combat helicopter
Fly a simulated combat mission in the Huey helicopter, a full on, doors off, adrenalin pumping experience.

Scenic helicopter
See the Cape Peninsular from the air on a scenic helicopter flight from the waterfront.

Side car adventures
Do it different, take a Cape Point or wine lands tour in a vintage world war two side car, and enjoy the feel of the wind in your face and the un-obscured views.

Hiking
South Africa is a hikers paradise, there are far too many trails to list so we have chosen to highlight our favourite Cape Town hike. Hoerikwaggo Trail over Table Mountain is a wonderful experience. The route begins at the Waterfront with an informative boat ride around the harbour and proceeds through the historical parts of the mother city to end the first day at the old “wash houses”, now converted into very comfortable accommodation. (This is a two night, three day fully catered, Hike).
