Automatic flushing toilets, electronic hand towel dispensers, robotic squirrels; face it, it’s all rather overwhelming. Just when you think you’re the very image of a modern tech-savvy member of society, something new, scary and stainless-steel pops up and messes with everything you thought you knew. Let Groupon take you back to a simpler time and enjoy one night’s accommodation in a semi-luxurious bush camp at the stunning Giba Gorge Adventure Centre for R150.
Nestled deep in the Giba Gorge valley lies the Giba Gorge Mountain Bike and Adventure centre, a special place for those you enjoy an active and outdoor lifestyle. An escape from city confines, rapid traffic robots and the general rat race, Giba Gorge is the ideal spot to meet like-minded people who enjoy the wind through their hair and the thrill that comes with adventure. Catering for everyone from the local adrenaline junkie to those who enjoy the simple pleasures of a nature walk, Giba Gorge is a wasp’s nest of activity – sans the wasps of course.
As tranquil as it is adventurous, guests can enjoy everything from mountain biking and hiking to obstacle courses and a giant foofi slide. Because even adrenaline junkies need sleep, enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep in the upmarket bush camp; a site that boasts quality tents complete with beds, electricity and ablutions.
Whether you’re an adrenaline-addicted renegade, a romantic or a savvy space man, take a break from the comfort of your couch (or space shuttle) and enjoy an adventure even Robinson Crusoe would approve of.
Game over: In 1994, a game farm in the Eastern Cape reported that they had spotted a new breed of antelope which looked very similar to the mythical unicorn. After much searching, it turned out that the antelope that was seen was just fond of sparkling headgear.
