FIFA Football Adventure






South Africans and foreign visitors alike are enjoying the FIFA football adventure that is currently playing out around our beautiful country, Mzansi. Feel it, it is here!

Admittedly it would have been great for locals if Bafana Bafana had achieved a better result in their game yesterday in Tshwane against Uruguay, but this was a tough draw for us. Uruguay are two times Soccer World Cup champions. So let’s not forget Bafana Bafana’s respectable performance against Mexico and let’s face France with dignity and optimism as a united rainbow nation. Doing our diski moves along the way and keeping a unified spirit of ubuntu as we do it.

Soccer is a quirky game and as we have seen unexpected results do happen. The Spaniards know all about that! This football contest is for those with adventure in their hearts.

Our visitors have been heard sharing on local news platforms that despite their prior reservations about the security in South Africa they have experienced happy travels. We have so much to offer travelers that staying in hotels rooms between the games in out of the question!

Visit AdventureEscapdes.co.za to find your choice of action adventure. Mild to wild activities from mountain to coast will thrill you beyond expectation. Are you up for more that the FIFA football adventure?

Catch the Sardine Run with Blue Vision Dive Centre





You can catch the Sardine Run with Blue Vision Dive Centre. Small pockets of sardines have already been spotted at Port St Johns, so we are looking forward to the beginning of the Sardine Run.

If you have not heard of the sardine run and are wondering what it is and why it creates such excitement read on. It is not called "The Greatest Shoal on Earth" by mistake. This mammoth natural event is the underwater equivalent of the annual Wildebeest migration across the Serengeti. Millions of people catch sardine fever. While they wage heated battles to secure the best vantage points from which to enjoy this fabulous spectacle, predators of the ocean congregate by the hordes for a humungous feast.

The last day in May has seen the arrival of the humpback whales migrating passed Aliwal Shoal and the Ragged Tooth Sharks have arrived in numbers!

We look forward to the gigantic shoals of sardines as they chase the warmer waters they love best while unwittingly luring ocean and air hunters to the coast of KwaZulu-Natal. The shoals of sardines can extend to a length of 6km, a width of 1,6km and up to 30m deep. That is a big draw card for hungry sea creatures!

All this in anticipation of the ocean extravaganza that is due to arrive soon. Be sure to book early and catch the sardine run with Blue Vision Dive Centre.
