1. Eye to Eye with Great White Sharks in Gansbaai
Gansbaai ranks among the world’s most extreme travel destinations for adventure water sport enthusiasts. This picturesque town lies on the Western Cape of South Africa where two mighty oceans collide. But don’t let the beauty fool you into a sense of security: this pristine stretch of ocean is rated for its dense population of great white sharks. Dare to leave your comfort zone on dry land and venture offshore for Gansbaai shark cage diving at Shark Alley. In this small channel of water between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, you will get up close and personal with one of nature’s deadliest creatures. Can you imagine coming face-to-face with a great white? It’s the ultimate test of your nerves.
After an adrenaline-fuelled day, relax in style at the 5-star Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, a luxury eco-resort offering stunning ocean vistas. The hillside villas look out onto a pristine milkwood forest, giving the resort its name: Grootbos means “big forest” in Afrikaans. It’s definitely worth a stay!
2. Deep-Sea Fishing: Reel in a Yellowfin in Dubai
The Persian Gulf is teeming with an abundance of fish species, making the glamorous emirate of Dubai one of the best deep-sea fishing locations in the world. But as you leave the safe harbour behind and head out onto the open sea, it’s time to put your fishing skills to the ultimate test and see what catch you can reel in. Common hauls include queenfish, king mackerel, barracuda, and dorado. You may even get lucky and spot some of the rarer species like yellowfin tuna and cobia. After a hard day’s fishing out on the open sea, what better way to unwind than cooking the catch of the day?
3. Kayak to Nature’s Most Extreme Lagoon at Angel Falls
Towering above Canaima National Park, deep in one of Venezuela’s many jungles, is Angel Falls, the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall – a staggering 19 times the height of Niagara Falls. In a display of power, the water crashes 3,212 feet (979 meters) from the highest point to the serene lagoon below.
The first true challenge is reaching this remote natural wonder. While you can fly to Canaima lagoon, your keen thirst for adventure will be better served by hopping on a motorized canoe. This takes you along waterways lined with dense jungle and exotic wildlife. On arrival, treat yourself to a bath in the lagoon at the base of the world’s greatest waterfall and feel the raw power of Mother Nature.
