Sports & nature

Imagine yourself standing on the edge of a mountain looking out towards the vast ocean and wishing you could catch the wind and fly. The long white beach at Wilderness stretches out below you inviting you to take a bird’s eye view, spotting whales and dolphins as you go. This is what paragliding is all about and all you need to do is arrive. Here in Wilderness they offer tandem flights, with experienced instructors and before you know it you will be strapped in to your harness, taking a short run down the hill before lifting your feet and soaring like an eagle. Exhilarating to say the least.

Nightlife info

Night Drives At all major rest camps: Night Game DrivesAll of the major rest camps offer night and early morning game drives. For R100 per person (about $15 USD), you get a 3 hour tour of the surrounding park area back roads in an open-air bus, often spotting some wildlife that you might not see during the day. Things we saw on game drives that we didn't see on our own are: rhino, hyena and jackals. We did catch a glimpse of a male lion on our own, but we got a much better look at one on a game drive.

Culture and history info

The culture of South Africa is known for its ethnic and cultural diversity. The South African black majority still has a substantial number of rural inhabitants who lead largely impoverished lives. It is among these people, however, that cultural traditions survive most strongly; as blacks have become increasingly urbanised and Westernised, aspects of traditional culture have declined. Urban blacks usually speak English or Afrikaans in addition to their native tongue. There are smaller but still significant groups of speakers of Khoisan languages, not included in the eleven official languages, but are one of the eight other officially recognized languages. There are small groups of speakers of endangered languages, most of which are from the Khoisan family, that receive no official status; however, some groups within South Africa are attempting to promote their use and revival.
