The Best Family Adventure in South Africa

The best family adventure in South Africa

The best family adventure in South Africa would be quite a claim, and one would need to be able to defend such a claim, and highlight why it is just that.

I’m sure going to give it a try and am always more than happy to be brought straight back down to earth. And before we get into the details, lets establish a reference point; and head along to wikepedia for a definition;

 An adventure is an exciting or unusual experience. It may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking, with an uncertain outcome. Adventures may be activities with some potential for physical danger such as exploring, skydiving, mountain climbing, river rafting or participating in extreme sports…

I think in order to be the best adventure holiday in South Africa it would need to include;

  1. A wilderness area, far from crowds, lights and noise.
  2. Somewhere where there is no internet connection.
  3. A geographically diverse environment.
  4. Water, and lots of it, they type you can swim in.
  5. Wildlife.
  6. Activities, they type that get the adrenalin flowing a bit.
  7. Loads of fun for the whole family.
  8. Somewhere safe and clean to put your heads down for the night.
  9. Somewhere close to a major access point.

Having discovered the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve, and after establishing a luxury mobile tented camp, set up for just a short time, it seemed to tick all the boxes;

  1. The largest wilderness area in the South Africa.
  2. No internet connection.
  3. 7 of South Africa’s 8 biomes occur here; Fynbos, Forest, Grassland, Succulent Karoo, Nama-Karoo, Subtropical Thicket and Savanna.
  4. The crystal clear and very clean Groot Rivier runs through the heart of the kloof.
  5. 50 mammal, and over 300 bird species, and 18 plant species found nowhere else in the world.
  6. Swimming, game drives, hikes, kayaking, cycling, and just sitting in rock pools.
  7. Take away the internet, get the family active, and it is amazing how much fun is had by all.
  8. Hearty meals, hot showers, comfortable beds, what else could one want after long days in the sun.
  9. Just 90 minutes from Port Elizabeth and adjacent to the garden route, puts this adventure very close to a well-worn tourist highway.

I think we are fairly close to this being the best family adventure in South Africa.

    Hi, just came across this article. Its a fantastic illustration of how small to medium sized businesses can use Awards based advertising to get their companies recognised on the 1st page of Google. Awards programmes offer many benefits to participants. After all they bring publicity and you can share the news of your win with your employees, clients, industry peers and target market as many times as you like. Additonally awards offer prestige and status, giving potential customers peace of mind that they are working with a reputable company. There are many types of awards programmes, including those that host awards ceremonies (and you pay per table), organisations that award only their members (and you pay for membership and advertising) and those that provide promotional materials. The latter is a great way for those who are wary about the benefits of using corporate awards programmes because generally nominees and winners do not have to pay a penny to be considered. Winners often receives online exposure, usually with a reach much greater than their own marketing efforts can offer. Other free benefits can include the use of an announcement. Most participants have the option to purchase additional marketing materials to further utilise their win, if they wish to, for use in social media campaigns, on their own website, email marketing campaigns or in customer newsletters.
