When it comes to abseiling, we wouldn’t recommend going with anything but the best. For the ultimate commercial abseil, visit Cape Town’s “Mother of all Abseils” – a riveting journey down Table Mountain, with an 1000ft cliff. It will be the rush of your life!

Everyone has driven past the majestic Orlando Towers, but now it’s time to admire them in a different way. Experience a breathtaking view of Soweto and take a leap of faith, whether it be the big swing, base jump or bungee. It’s something every adventurous Joburger should do.

With the majestic Umkomaas River rushing around you, Kwazulu-Natal is home to some of the best White River Rafting. The Duma Manzi Boutique Eco lodge offers exciting day-trips: Choose between a 2km/12hr course or for the more extreme a 24km/4hr run and really get wet.

There are many different skydiving schools out there, but the Pretoria Skydiving Club is a step above the rest. With one of the fastest planes (for skydiving) in South Africa, tandem jumps and AFF courses, you can’t go wrong.

Experience the life of a fighter pilot, reaching supersonic speeds as a passenger in one of the world’s top jets. You’ll also enjoy a view of the City of Cape Town, but only if you look fast enough. Visit www.extremescene.co.za if you’ve always wanted to say, “I can see my house from here!”

The whole shark cage diving is so last year - nowadays it’s all about Crocodile Cage diving. Hand full of meat, knee deep in water, next to a 4m croc! It is one crazy experience and the best place to do it? The Cango Wildlife Ranch, en route to the Cango Caves in Outshoorn, Little Karoo.
