Fun Outdoor Activities in Cape Town

If you live in Cape Town and you aren’t partaking in any outdoor activities then you’re really not living your life to the fullest. People travel from all over the world to see the things you could see if you just stepped out more. There’s always a nice view of the mountains and even the sea from places in the city. Here’s a thought; the next time you want to take a break from your work life, why not go camping?

South Africa is full of some of the world’s most beautiful and accessible nature spots that are almost criminal to miss out on if you live in Cape Town. Now that we’ve rubbed that in your head, let’s take a look at what you could be doing if you do plan on including some healthy outdoor activities in your life.

Paraglide

If you’ve ever felt like your life is becoming too routine and mundane then you should try paragliding and you’ll never feel that way again. Seriously, floating through the skies so calmly is possibly one of the nicest and most exhilarating things you will ever experience.

Go Fishing

Fine, if the idea of paragliding sounds a bit too extreme for your fragile little heart, no worries! There are less extreme things you can do and still enjoy the beauty of South Africa just as much. You could go on a fishing trip. Even if you don’t catch anything, you’ll still be able to enjoy a very nice retreat out in the waters.

Sandboarding

If the waters scare you, that’s quite alright. You could take a drive along the west coast till you come to the sand dunes. This is a place where a lot of folks like to indulge in a fun but dry activity.
