Scuba Adventure




For many lucky adventurers we will have an extra day this week to enjoy a Scuba Adventure. If you have planned correctly you will have scored four happy holidays in a row. This also gives those land-locked South Africans more time to travel to your nearest beach and hook up with a dive instructor. Divine!

Dive Permits are essential so remember to get yours at a mere R75-00 for the whole year. This makes so much more cents than buying a temporary one at R45-00, which is valid for just one single month.

We live in such a superbly beautiful country with an awesome natural heritage including berg, beach and great hills, plains and midlands in between. So if the ocean is your remedy head along for a Scuba Adventure.

Sand Adventure





Sandboarding is an awesome adventure that will challenge your speed, balance and steering skills. This is so much fun and even without experience you can carve the dunes at pace.

Sun, surf, sand and the guts to go full throttle are required. You can take it easy by opting out before the end of your run. Average tracks are around 100m with the longest known in South Africa measuring 350m. It’s it like surfing just dry, great for anyone with a shark phobia and no waiting for a wave. The dunes are always up for action.

The thrill of sandboarding sessions can change the way you live your life. This is addictive action therapy you do not want to miss. Join our Face book group and share your sand adventure stories.

Snake Adventure






A Safari with a difference is what you get when you book a snake adventure with Mike Perry of African Reptile and Venom Safaris. Mike has been a reptile enthusiast since 1963. At ten years old he began to bag these creatures and so began a lifelong passion. To date Mike has been hosted in various wildlife shows. Meet him in person as you search together for reptiles to photograph.


We live in a country where all outdoor adventures have the added edge of possibly coming upon a fierce reptile. It is sensible to know something about snakes so that you know how to handle such confrontations. Mike offers practical hands-on courses which will give you the ability to identify the brutes from the babes. This is a must for hikers, birders and mountain climbers to name a few. Whether you have a passion for these beings is irrelevant, they are a fact of life for anyone adventuring in South Africa so be powerful in your knowledge.

African Reptiles and Venom Safaris include Snakebite treatment in their course content. So be prepared. Life is an adventure better enjoyed by those who are well prepared. Know your snakes and please train your game rangers for snake adventures you can survive to remember!
