The Garden Route is well known for its spectacular canyoning or kloofing experiences, an adrenaline-filled adventure. The deep gorges of the Wilderness National Park on the Garden Route are the perfect spot for this adventure. Travellers will wade through fresh mountain pools, clamber over massive boulders and splash through the river.
Chris Leggatt of Eden Adventures says kloofing in the Wilderness National Park will take travellers on an expedition through the indigenous forest and stunning majestic canyons. “They can swim and look up at the towering cliffs rising from the river and, for the more daring, there are a number of jumps from the cliffs into the canyon’s cola-coloured water.” Travellers can round off their experience with a 45m abseil next to a waterfall, taking the plunge and landing in a boat at the bottom of the waterfall.
The Garden Route is also home to the highest bungee jump in the world – 216m high – at the Bloukrans Bridge, which is operated by Face Adrenalin.
For a truly unique adventure experience, travellers could try riding an ostrich at one of the Ostrich Show Farms in Oudtshoorn or even participate in a true Ostrich Derby.
