Extreme Sports - Tzaneen Area | iinfo TZANEEN

As with inhabitants of most other towns, Tzaneen's have the opportunity and privilege to participate in a personally preferred sport. Among such are tennis, squash, bowling, rugby, cycling, mountain biking, running clubs – to name a few.
 
However, not all towns have the surroundings Tzaneen has, lending themselves ideally to the practising – and enjoyment – of extreme sports. If the humdrum 'normal' sports start boring you, here are a few more options for the brave-hearts.

Kloofing (or canyoning) is a relatively challenging activity. You have to be relatively fit, able to swim and preferably not have a fear of heights. One of the rewards is the majestic scenery. Fabulous stretches of gurgling mountain streams, tranquil pools, a few cheeky rapids and waterfalls you can jump down.
 
Gear: swimming costume, shorts, T-shirt and a good pair of non-slippery shoes. Safety gear provided. It is all about adrenalin and stepping out of that comfort zone. Rise to the challenge.
 
Abseiling at Kurisa Moya
 
Where: Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge, Houtbosdorp (near Magoebaskloof), Limpopo.
 
Contact: 015 276 1131 or 082 200 4596 for reservations.
 
Although it is known as an extreme sport, this is the perfect place for a beginner's abseiling experience on Snellkop Mountain. Suitable for all ages.
 
Gecko tubing
 
Magoebaskloof Adventures (previously Thaba-Metsi Adventures) – starting deep in the gorge of the river, you float along through tranquil, crystal-clear waters enjoying breath-taking views, then meet the challenge of roaring white-water rapids, until you glide into the calm waters again. Best time of the year is during the summer months (November-February) as the mountain water is crisp and fresh.
 
Other attractive pastimes:
 
* Guided quad-biking trails through indigenous forests along the Groot Letaba River, overlooking the scenic Magoebaskloof.
 
* Horse-riding – experience forests, mountains, scenic views with the benefit of the full use and capacity of all the senses: sight, hearing, smell, tasting and feeling.
 
* Paintball – the course is set in indigenous forest
 
* Canopy tours - Magoebaskloof Canopy Tour consists of platforms joined by 'foefie-slide' type cables, allowing surround-sight natural beauty.
