Kilimanjaro seen from Amboseli

Some of us cannot stay within the confines of  boundaries or tread carefully in the grey zone. Some of us live to walk on the edge, test the deep waters, embrace wildness and get no less reckless  with each blood-pumping  adrenaline rush. If you’re one of the people who cannot be restrained by the chains of balance, then Africa is the place to go to hit the extreme of your fascination.This blog is a must-read to arouse the thrill seeker in you. Some of the most nerve wracking, goosebump inducing adventures await you in the great continent of Africa.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

The indomitable Kilimanjaro, being the tallest free-standing mountain on the planet is sure to quench the thirst for a challenge. The trail is riddled with trials and is perfectly designed for the dauntless and stout-hearted. With several battles that test your mettle on the way up, the peak plays hard to get at a game you cherish the most. Despite what it takes from you, Mount Kilimanjaro gives you the most exhilarating, life altering experiences one could ask for. Picture yourself on the roof of Africa with spectacular, starry skies stretched out above and the sweeping grasslands of Tanzania spread out below. Don’t forget to put Kilimanjaro climbing on your bucket list.

 

Devil’s Pool, Zambia

Devil’s pool is a natural rock pool adjacent to the Livingstone island. The dry season is the perfect time to dive at your chance to visit this spectacular pool. It hangs onto the lip of the renowned Victoria falls and offers a lip-smacking thrill for the adventure hungry. The Victoria falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world is a mile wide sheet of river water drastically dropping into a breathtaking chaos of mist. Take a dip in the devil’s pool to be the spectator of this spectacle. Now for the most exciting bit, the pool lets you literally walk on the edge. That’s right, the river Zambezi drops thunderously into a fall from the edge of a wall of submerged rock, and YOU can walk all the way to this deliciously dangerous edge and stare down at the drop till your stomach drops.

 

Shark cage diving, Gansbaai, South Africa

The waters at Gansbaai are brimming with the largest density of shark population on the planet. The great white sharks being one of the most treacherous predators, are ideally something to watch out for, rather than to watch. But at Gansbaai, you defy all fear and logic, and take a dip in the waters to get an unimaginably close look at them. You might as well be a piece of bait dangling from a fisherman’s pole. But don’t you worry, a highly secure galvanized steel cage will keep you out of harm’s way. Hungry white sharks expectantly make their way to your cage and stare at you from a breath away. Feel your goosebumps rise with this madly intimate encounter with danger. Get yourself in ‘deep trouble’ at Gansbaai.

 

VICTORIA FALLS, ZAMBIA & ZIMBABWE

If you are the type who is not satiated with the adventure in the great migration and lion-watching, transport yourself to a little plunge pool right at the edge of the world’s largest waterfalls – the Victoria Falls.

Mosi-oa-Tunya (“The Smoke That Thunders) on the Zambezi river forms one of the most monumental water spectacles in the world as more than 10,000 cubic meters of water cascades down 108 meters every second! When the water of the Zambezi recedes marginally, it is possible to walk along the lip of the falls and plunge into one of the many rock pools formed through erosion over thousands of years. While it is impossible to achieve this feat when the Zambezi is raging in full flow, the view from the edge of the falls makes for one of the most exhilarating experiences.

Apart from our personal favorites listed above, Africa hosts an abundance of other activities for the dauntless and uncurbed soul. Discover your wild side and grab a slice of raw, insane indulgence in the great continent of Africa. Feel every heartbeat and whip up an adventure like never before! If you’re still waiting within your walls, it’s time you made your escape.
