South Africa Adventure Holidays


South Africa is a country of immense diversity and each of its nine provinces, although unique in their own right, represents a different feature of South Africa with varied environments to cater for a wide range of adventure activities.

Home to some of Africa’s biggest and best national parks, South Africa is the ideal destination for an unforgettable safari holiday. Experience the 'Big Five' amongst spectacular scenery with expert guides and accommodation options to suit you. We can accommodate all safari styles from walking and riding safaris to 4x4 tours, staying in anything from simple campsites to luxury lodges.

Cape Town and the Cape Region offer a host of adventure activities for all ages. From the beautiful scenic hike up Table Mountain to free flight paragliding from Lions Head to a sunset boat cruise on the Waterfront, your adventure can be as mild or as wild as you like.

South Africa also offers some of the wildest and best organized adventure water sports in the world from shark cage diving around Cape Town to whale watching in Hermanus.

Battlefield Tours

The Battlefield tours are a MUST for anyone visiting the province of KwaZulu-Natal. A visit to the famous sites from the Zulu Wars, including Fugitives' Drift and Rorke's Drift, the scene where 12 Victoria Crosses were earned in one night, is highly recommended. By listening to the brilliantly detailed stories, told on the actual site by raconteurs of note, one can gain a fascinating insight and perspective into what helped fashion the South Africa of today. Nothing can prepare you for the intensity of emotions felt as the battlefield tales unravel; you will feel you have lived through each one.

Outposts Travel Africa can organise fully guided, small group, personal tours in KwaZulu Natal showing and explaining the happenings of yester-year at battle sites and cultural venues. From single day trips to national tours, we can tailor-make a battlefield tour to your requirements. Please contact us to find out more.

Fugitives' Drift

Take an opportunity to stay at the award winning Fugitives' Drift Lodge, the home of Nicky and the late David Rattray; join the flagship tours to Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift that are led by registered tour guides Rob Caskie and his team. These superb storytellers make the history of that day come alive offering some unique Zulu perspectives.

Similar to the Anglo Zulu wars, one can best learn on site about the 2nd Anglo-Boer War (1899 – 1902) and its history with the Battle of Spoinkop being the focal point. We would highly recommend staying at Three Tree Hill Lodge which offers the perfect location to base yourself for exploring the major Anglo-Boer War Battlefields in KwaZulu Natal and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains, a world heritage site.
