When you hear the word adventure, what comes into your mind first? Well, some would think of big waves and a high rocky mountain, some would think of travel, but most of the time, people think it is all about extreme stuff to do. You can go mountain climbing, or surf through the big waves of the oceans, or maybe try some skydiving.
Speaking of extreme, if you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, South Africa is a perfect choice for you. This country is a home for wild animals, it occupies a large area of grasslands where the animals can safely and freely wander and live. South Africa is great for someone who really likes to explore and discover new things. It is marked by several distinct ecosystems. South Africa’s coasts are major tourist attractions and trade locations. Its warm subtropical weather is great for those who wants their bodies to be laid under the sun.

Some of these beaches also offer whale watching and camping.
If you are interested in wines or winemaking, you should go to South Africa’s vineyards. Some vineyards that this country has can be found in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Vineyards aren’t just producing wines, but also raisins and non-alcoholic grape juices.

If you prefer the very well-known destinations in South Africa which are safaris and game reserves, there are lots of places to pick from. First on the list is the most popular, the Kruger National Park. It is one of the largest game reserves in Africa.

Travelling is a wonderful opportunity that is open for everyone who loves exploring, but of course it is not as simple as dreaming of going to places you want to. Some countries would take a day or even more of a plane travel but maybe trying to travel to South Africa, no matter how far it is from your place, would be worth the effort.
