World’s most romantically adventurous destinations!
Being adventurous doesn’t mean that you won’t be sipping your favourite cocktail as you watch the world go by…it just means that there’s a lot to do before you savour that sweet moment of relaxation. Below are a few great adventure destinations for couples…the time to book cheap international flights from South Africa is now!
- Jet off to the Seychelles
Seychelles might sound like just another tropical beach paradise ideal for lazing and relaxing…but there really is so much more to it, particularly if you love water. There isn’t a water sport activity that you won’t find in Seychelles.
Couples tend to enjoy spending time on the main Mahé island and La Digue (which is an island with no cars!). Here you will find that the crystal clear waters beckon you in for a bit of diving, snorkelling and swimming. Also, don’t forget to cycle around the island, find your core strength on a stand-up paddle board, go kayaking or spend an afternoon toasting to a happy holiday on board one of the many yachts.
- Heat things up a bit in Bali, Indonesia
For many, Bali is the place to suntan, shop and party, but for couples, things can be far more adventurous.
While spending time doing all of those touristy things is time well spent, adventure lovers should head straight for the mountains of Batukaru where volcanoes, hiking trails and gorgeous mountain tracks are ready to challenge and delight you! What better way to get closer as a couple than to be thrown into the lesser known parts of Bali.
- Let loose on South Africa’s very own Wild Coast
While you won’t have to book cheap international flights from South Africa for this, traveling to this local destination is still considered a worthy adventure. The Wild Coast is a gorgeous area of the country.
Couples will love visiting Hole in the Wall where hiking and walking trails are endless. You will also enjoy kayaking in Bulungulu or even horse riding on Chintsa beach. There’s much to do and see on the Wild Coast of South Africa!
- See & do it all in Malaysia
Gorgeous Malaysia awaits! This pretty paradise is one of the lesser known adventure destinations in the world, and even fewer know why! There is simply so much to see and do in Malaysia that you will need to be careful with your time.
Kayak adventures are a must for couples who want to circumnavigate the island, experiencing romantic nights in each of the bays along the way. Stand-up boarding is an art that is oh-so-fun to learn together and if you really want to get into some risky adventuring, why not do a little surfing during monsoon season (February)! Malaysia is still largely unspoiled and those who have appreciate wildlife will love all the creatures, plants – even rain forests – and more!
- Rough it in style in Linyanti & Okovango Delta, Botswana
If you’ve ever wanted to try out glamping, Botswana is the place to do it. The Linyanti and Okovango Delta regions are truly wild yet pristine and you’re bound to be spoiled by an eco-travel experience that will be hard to beat.
Trek through the swamps in a traditional canoe called a “mokoro”, stalk through the bush on a guided walk or even sleep on a stilted platform with nothing but the stars as a cover. Botswana is the sheer epitome of adventure for a couple – don’t miss out!
- Be amazed by Thailand
For South Africans, Thailand is a treat. It’s easy on the budget and adventure can be found anywhere you turn. Besides the interesting shows by night and party venues that seem to be buzzing at all times, Thailand also offers quad biking adventures, snorkelling, diving, cruises and so much more. The food and culture are also an adventure all of their own. There’s no denying it, Thailand is a destination made for couples!
