Packages - Adventure Activities in Gauteng & the North West

Gauteng has all the splendour that one would associate with a large metropolitan area while being surrounded by nature in all its glory. With this comes adventure, adrenalin and close animal encounters & interactions in the Johannesburg and Pretoria surrounds. 

So dont be fooled the andrenalin of river rafting, quad biking, cycling through Soweto and even abseilling can be part of your day out in Gauteng!

Our neighbouring province, the North West is home to our BIG 5 and the malaria free Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Experience the ultimate safari from the back of an African Elephant or a drumming session as you hit the melody of african drumbeat. 

A sensational Rainbow city upon city with the easy access now available with our fancy Gautrain infrastructure, catch an authentic taxi or take a tik tik through an unparallaled township to stop at a shebeen for a bite of true Africa?

Or if this scares the adventurous side of your personality then stick to the surrounds of wild and vast options of animal encounters, game drives and catch a glimpse of the big 5 as orientation to the rest of your safari. Alongside these areas are always the chance that you may find a fossil, the many sites in the cradle of humankind affords an intiguing avenue into our species evolutionary traces.
