Dare-devils in your midst?


Outdoor adventure parks are so much fun for the whole family. Not only are they entertaining but they get everyone moving! Zip lining, biking, off road quad biking, climbing walls, go-karting, archery and paintballing just to name a few. Take a picnic basket or a braai stand (enquire if braaing is allowed) and make a day of it.

Nature reserves


Surrounding yourself with nature and its beauty is sure to make you feel like you’ve had a long relaxing holiday. That’s why you’ll find a number of nature reserves listed on our site too. These offer you hiking trails, bird watching, game viewing & fresh water fishing. Pack yourselves some good snacks, plenty of liquids and some hiking gear to enjoy a beautiful day out in our attractive province. We also list monkey and elephant sanctuaries as well as a vulture conservation project not too far from Johannesburg.

Going underground


Explore caves, abseil into the dark unknown and be amazed by the beauty of wild underground formations as well as ancient caves and fossil sites. An educational and thrilling experience for young and old, guided tours make this an informative outing. Remember to wear comfortable clothing and shoes for these types of outings.

Trains, mazes, cableways and canopy tours


Kids will love taking a trip on a real working steam train that offers you a ride to various tourist venues. You’ll also find a venue with giant maze puzzles for family fun or as a school outing. Then there’s an awesome cableway trip for amazing views of Gauteng where you can enjoy a pizza while the kids play. They also offer abseiling and paragliding. Canopy tours are a must-do activity, with cable slides securely keeping you up over the Ysterhout Gorge.

All types of outdoor action entertainment


Whether you have small children or teenagers, there’s something for everyone in our directory. Outdoor action activity venues have so much to offer that there’s never a dull moment. Extreme activities to calmer outings, you have the opportunity to visit an incredible place every weekend!

Outdoor action party venues


Some of these action venues serve as party venues too. Parties can be booked in advance and all arrangements relating to the party can be made prior to the day of the party. Ask whether the venue will be for exclusive use to you for the party so you know what to expect. Remember to arrange catering, cakes, party packs, party décor and activities clearly beforehand.
