Thrill-seekers, the Western Cape is waiting for you!
Enjoy a scenic 20-minute flight as your plane ascends up to 10,000 feet, and then feel the adrenaline kick in when it stops and you jump with your Tandem Master to experience the rush of a 35-second free fall at 200KPH! The Western Cape has an abundance of sites to suit both experience and weather conditions. With so many sites to choose from, what better way to get a bird’s eye view of an inspiring province?
Cape Town and the Western Cape offers the ultimate thrill - jump off the world’s highest (commercial) bungy bridge the Bloukrans Bridge near to the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay! At 216m high, it is officially recognized by Guinness World Records. They also offer Bridge Walking Tours as you discover the engineering feats of the incredible Bloukrans Bridge – the largest single span arch bridge in the world. That's pretty impressive.
Kloofing, or "canyoning" as it is called in most parts of the world, consists of following a mountain stream along its course by climbing, sliding, jumping and swimming. Suicide Gorge in the Riviersonderend near Grabouw, offers you the highest jump of 18m and compulsory jumps of 7-8m. There's a reason this is the most popular kloof in the Western Cape. Explore the river in Plettenberg Bay as you navigate through the river shallows, jump, zip-line, swim through fresh-water mountain pools, slide down natural water slides and abseil in and around waterfalls as you dip down into the river gorge. Nature meets adrenaline in the most perfect way.
Ghosts in Matjiesfontein
The Lord Milner Hotel is one of the most haunted hotels in South Africa. Rumours abound of people having seen a ghost wearing a night gown floating around the passages and the stairs of the hotel. It appears that Lucy (as she is known) has never checked out of her room on the first floor. Then there’s Kate who was a young nurse who liked to play cards with her patients (either when the hotel was a British officer’s hospital or later when it became a popular health resort). Apparently the sound of cards being shuffled in Katie’s Card Room have been heard on many occasions and she has been known to rattle the door at the top of the stairs. Ghosts of British soldiers have frequently been seen on the main staircase and legend has it that the spirit of James Logan (who founded the town) has never left Matjiesfontein, but resides in the elegantly decorated lounges at the back of the hotel.
