Make one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World your playground
Bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge is one of top five adrenalin experiences on the planet and for good reason. Adrenaline junkies go crazy for that four-second free fall through a roaring, misty gorge followed by glorious minutes of swinging in the presence of one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.
Of course, plunging into the abyss is not the only way to enjoy this spectacular world heritage site. There are many (less adrenaline-inducing) ways to experience the majestic Victoria Falls, like taking a scenic helicopter flight, white water rafting, bridge swinging, and just breathing in the spectacular view from as many angles as possible.

See the Okavango from an African gondola
Our guests love exploring the Okavango by means of a Mokoro – a traditional Delta dugout canoe. Sit back and relax as your African gondolier takes you into the flourishing Okavango with only the sounds of the kingfishers, frogs, and the teeming reeds around you. Not a bad way to relax after a day of African adventures. Read more here.
Take the adventure into your own hands
Africa4Us is the first company to introduce custom-built Polaris Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTVs) to the African continent. What does this mean for you? It means that you no longer have to be the idle passenger of your African adventure. You get to drive your own all-terrain 4×4 vehicle through the rivers, dust, rocky terrains and mountains of Namibia. Does this sound like your kind of Ultimate Adventure Tour? Then you should read our blog to find out more.
Have real, authentic African cultural experiences
Authentic interactions with the local people is a big priority for our guests. The good news is that you’ll be able to enjoy this highlight in various forms on all of our tours. Whether it be dancing with the San (Bushmen), getting your travel aches and pains relieved by a Sangoma (an African traditional healer) or just making the rounds at the local curio shops, you’ll be sure to take something special home from the heart of Mother Africa. And if you want to know more about any location, its history or any particular culture, feel free to strike up a conversation with your Africa4Us crew. All of our crew members are highly knowledgeable and extremely passionate about Africa.
A laid-back approach to wildlife viewing
There is no doubt that you’ll be seeing plenty of animals on your African Overland Adventure Tour but there is something very special about seeing these animals from the water. A slow boat cruise down the Chobe river not only makes for a very relaxed wildlife viewing opportunity, but it also offers a unique perspective.
Wild animals come to the river to drink, bathe, play and sometimes even to pray on others. You’ll see creatures and behaviours that you don’t often see on land or even at watering holes – and the best part is, you don’t have to endure a bumpy ride to experience it. You can just sip your favourite cocktail as the boat cruises into the sunset. Now isn’t that the way to end off a day in Africa?
We hope that this list of highlights will help you decide which path to choose for your African Overland Tour. Herewith another 5 best-hidden gems to visit while you visit in Africa.
