The lifting of the curfew in South Africa came just in time for us to see in the New Year with a renewed sense of cheer!
On 30 December 2021 the South African Government officially lifted the curfew and reduced covid restrictions. Social gatherings of up to 2,000 outdoors are now permissable. For indoor venues, 50% of capacity but wih a maximum of 1,000 is allowed.
That being said, mask wearing in public places remains mandatory and the use of hand sanitizer is encouraged.
The relaxation of restrictions has brought about a sense of venturing into 2022 with hope and anticipation!

As part of our 30 year celebration series, we would like to reflect on the growth and development of the adventure market and what this has meant to meant to us.
Bungee Jumping at Vic Falls is just one of many adventure activities on offer
Democratic elections in 1994 opened the region up to the MICE market. The nineties was a very exciting time to be in travel and many new products burst on to the scene. Victoria Falls and Cape Town soon started to offer a miriad of adventure products.
Victoria Falls is now well established as an adventure destination and while our leisure clients are often up for some adrenaline boosting fun, our corporates take a slightly different view. Fortunately there are activities to fit every level and we have run programmes that have included a gentle paddle down the Zambezi, for example.
For more exciting ideas on key adventure activities which can be found around the falls – see our top 5 below !

In more recent years we’ve seen a lot of interest in Gorilla Trekking, for many this is an adventure of a life-time.
There are two main destinations for Gorilla Trekking – – Rwanda and Uganda. Rwanda is the premium and more established offering and is well represented by desirable brands like The One & Only and Singita.
