If you thirst for adventure then the Garden Route has lots of exciting opportunities on offer.
The Tourism Office will be able to give you more ideas and information but here are a few that have been recommended to us …

Bungee Jump
The Bloukrans bridge is the largest bridge in South Africa and the highest single span concrete arch bridge in the world – and you can jump off it if you want to!
If you don’t feel like taking the leap then you can always do the bridge walk.

You can hire your canoes from Eden Adventures at Ebb and Flow.
