Boulder hopping, wading, swimming, climbing, and jumping off cliffs from 3-15 metres high is what you will be doing. Kloofing, otherwise known as canyoning, is a uniquely Western Cape experience. It involves getting yourself down a river gorge, one that is fast flowing but with not enough water for kayaking. This is a full day of great fun and extreme adventure. We end the tour at Saltycrax where you can relax in the hammocks or the Jacuzzi and share your adventure with fellow travellers.
After breakfast and an early start, we go to Atlantis, passing the Melkbos beach along the way. Your sand boarding instructor will show you how to ride down the dunes. We then hit the beach for lunch and to wash the sand off with surf lessons.
We take a 20 minute drive up the West coast to the skydiving drop zone. Your tandem skydiving instructor will give you a briefing before boarding the plane. The view on the flight is breathtaking. Cape Town lies to the south, False Bay is further south, Robben Island is to the west and the Langebaan Lagoon is to the north.
This day you can use to explore the beaches & restaurants which are a 5 minute walk from your accommodation or have a relaxing day at the backpackers sorting out all your awesome pictures you took during your visit to the Mother City.
