Young travellers, including me, started their 14 days adventurous journey to South Africa. After seeing itinerary, it was indisputable that this was going to be crazy 14 days in South Africa. There are lot memories from this trip, including interaction with a Cheetah in Cheetah Outreach program, spotting lions inside safari, bungee jumping from Bloukrans Bridge and a lot more. I want to tell you about some of my favourite adventurous moments that I will cherish for a lifetime.

We decided to spend some quality time at Spier Wine Estate when we were at Stellenbosch. We decided to go on a Segway tour of the Spier wine Estate. We were transported to the Segway section, and were subjected to a thorough testing of our balancing skills before being deemed 'safe enough' to be left free on the Spier wine estate. We came back unscathed to enjoy our dinner with loads of wine bottles. It was just the beginning of adventurous journey; we had planned something big for the next day of our journey.

We all agreed to do shark cage diving to spend time with the apex predator of the oceans around South Africa, the great white shark. We reached White Shark Projects HQ in Gansbaai and got ready for first underwater activity of our adventurous trip. A white shark approached our boat, attracted by the smell of fish oil. We put on our wet-suits and got into the cage that was fastened to the side of the boat. We saw 3m long great white shark that was attracted to the bits of fish that were thrown into the water. Half an hour later, the top of the cage was opened, allowing us to clamber back on board the ship. It was one of a kind of experience that I will never forget.

It was the ninth day of our journey and I was ready to face my phobia of heights. We had to drive over the Bloukrans Bridge, home of the highest commercial bungee in the world. We decided to stop there and allow pushing us off the perfectly stable Bloukrans bride. While standing on the edge of the bridge, a fight started between my brain & heart. Heart told brain that I can't live with this phobia for whole life. Heart won in the end and I finally jumped off the bridge. I will try bungee again for sure.

We were in Durban and we booked a canopy tour in the Karkloof Nature reserve. I didn't fear from heights that day and it was a victory for me. I threw myself in this next escapade, with Tarzan-like enthusiasm. Zipping down a steel cable from one platform to another is a great deal of fun.
