9 Day Highveld Outdoor Extravaganza

The highveld extravaganza tour is a fully customised tour we built for a client who wanted to get the most out of their 9 day trip to Northeastern South Africa. What could be better than taking in a safari and enjoying the many options on offer in and around the city. The highveld tour is jam packed with goodies including a hot air balloon safari, Soweto bicycle tour and Magaliesberg mountain hike. Highly recommended for adventurers and those wanting to take in as much of the adventure culture as possible on their trip!

DAY 1

Fetch you from the airport

The highveld tour is either a 8 or 9 day tour depending on your arrival. If you arrive late we will fetch you from the airport and check you into a guest house for an early start on day 2! Dinner (R125 pp) included.

Johannesburg, 1 night
DAY 2

Human Origins Tour

Today we travel to the cradle of humankind in search of our earliest roots. The official visitors centre (Maropeng) means "returning to the place of origin" in Setswana, one of South Africa's 12 official languages. The cradle is a World Heritage Site and is a tribute to the 3 million years our ancestors have lived in this area. Along with the exhibits and fascinating interactive displays we also explore the Sterkfontein caves. A large number of early human fossil discoveries have been found here. And if this wasn't enough we also take you on an exciting tour of the Lion Safari Park. Breakfast included Read more

Soweto Bicycle Tour

We have teamed up with Sipho Tati, a resident of Soweto, to offer a fascinating Soweto bicycle tour. Sipho is passionate about riding, bicycle repair and teaching the community how to ride, no matter your age or gender! A tour with Sipho will take you through different neighborhoods of Soweto. You'll have a chance to speak and spend time with locals in their various community centres. This half day tour lasts about 4 hours. Make sure to bring sunscreen and some positive vibes. Read more

Depart for Pilanesberg Natio

We depart Johannesburg today for the safari part of the tour. The drive is a mere 2.5 hours and on arrival we take 30 minutes to settle in to your safari tent before we go hunting for the big 5! Lunch will be at a picnic spot within the park. We can relax but still enjoy the peacefulness of nature around us. We'll return to camp for a brief rest if the heat of the day is too much before departing for an afternoon drive once again. Dinner this evening will be at the restaurant.

The highlight of the tour starts this morning as we book you onto an early morning hot air balloon ride! What could be better than viewing wildlife while riding high among the clouds? The flight is approximately an hour and on landing, sparkling wine is served. A leisurely game drive is then taken through the park to the game lodge where breakfast is served, after which guests are returned to their chalet. We take some well deserved rest time before a late afternoon game drive or alternatively visit the Sun City Resort. Dinner at the restaurant this evening and then lights out!

We'll grab a well deserved mid morning breakfast upon return to camp. We pack up and clear out of our safari tent and say goodbye as we head off to the Rustig family farm for some rest in beautiful surroundings. Breakfast & dinner provided Read more

Tim and Colleen, United States

Our safari experience exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Doug, was fantastic. He helped us set up activities that we would enjoy and woke us up in the morning to make sure we'd get to them on time. He was extremely knowledgeable about where, when, and how to look for animals while we were driving around the park. He even helped us find better accommodations in Johannesburg. He was friendly, courteous, and helpful in every way. Highly recommended! Read more

Nic, United Kingdom

There is something said about the African bush, once you visit once you'll want to go back. I couldn't agree more. Our guide, made this an unforgettable experience allowing us to not see just the big five, but introduced us to the little 5 such as the rhino beetle. Never would have known they existed without his knowledge. Not usually one for camping, but loved the real bush experience. Read more

Ross, United Kingdom

We had the most wonderful, authentic bush experience with Adventure Anywhere. To see Cheetah in the wild was really amazing. Every part of our tour was well organised and enjoyable. Our guide, Douglas, was really knowledgeable and made sure that all our needs were taken care of. This was not our first visit to the African bush but certainly the most memorable. Read more
