Yesterday I posted about two unique African safari lodges in Tanzania and Rwanda. But if neither of those suggestions fits your African travel needs, then perhaps you’ll want to check out Adventure Zone which aims to be your one stop portal for planning and preparing a South African adventure.
On the site you’ll find links to all kinds of information, including places to stay while in Cape Town, Johannesburg, or a number of other places. And if you’re looking for things to do on your visit, there are suggestions on where to go mountain biking, whitewater paddling, and hiking.
Of course, you can’t go to Africa without going on Safari, and Adventure Zone has you covered there as well. There are comprehensive links to Safari tours and adventure operators. You can even search by selecting a region on the map if there is a specific area of South Africa you intend to visit. Couple all of this with a calendar of events and adventure headlines from the country, and Adventure Zone can easily become your one stop information center for South African travel.
On top of all of this, the site is also sponsoring an Adventurer of the Year award to honor some of South Africa’s top personalities in the adventure arena. The list is full of worthy candidates, including mountaineer Alex Harris, South Pole explorer Sibusiso Vilane, and my personal favorite explorer and adventurer Mike Horn. There are some very worth candidates and it’s going to be a tough call on who is most deserving.
