When you’ve had a confidence boost, it’s time to go looking for adventure. And there’s no better place to find it than the Rainbow Nation.

It’s that time in your life when you’ve earned the chance to see the world and have an adventure.

That goes double if you’ve just had dentures fitted. With Fixodent keeping them feeling natural and staying secure, you’ll have the confidence to tackle anything, from active sports to exciting cuisines.

And there are few more exciting destinations than South Africa. Known for its booming economy and diverse multiethnic society, the Rainbow Nation is quickly becoming the adventure holiday capital of the African continent.

The country is yet to become as overcrowded with tourists as some south-east Asian destinations have in the past two decades, which means now’s the time to visit, before it gets really packed – and knowing that your dentures won’t hold you back.

If you’d like to plan the adventure holiday of a lifetime in South Africa, don’t miss out on these thrilling activities.

See the big five at Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park

South Africa’s oldest game reserve is known for its rich wildlife and outstanding conservation efforts. You could see all of Africa’s ‘big five’ game animals: elephants, black rhinos, Cape buffalo, lions and leopards.

The 96,000 hectare reserve is also home to the largest white rhino population in the world, making it an essential stop for wildlife lovers.

Go kayaking with crocs

You won’t see a more fearsome pair of teeth than the crocodiles of the Lake St Lucia estuary, part of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park.

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, hop in a fiberglass kayak and paddle through the metre-deep waters, home to some 1,200 crocodiles and 900 hippos.

Enjoy the tranquillity of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

Even the most intrepid adventurers need a breather. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is the perfect place to recharge your batteries.

It’s home to thousands of plant and tree varieties, and you can even have a picnic on the grass while you soak up the natural beauty around you.

Zip-line through the forest with Canopy Tours

You’ll be glad your dentures are securely fixed as you whizz down one of the zip lines which crisscross the stunning forests of South Africa.

Safe for almost all ages – even 85-year-olds have risen to the challenge – this bucket-list must-do will leave you breathless, whichever magnificent natural surrounding you choose to swoosh through.

Explore the Cango Caves

Discovered in 1780 by a local farmer in the Western Cape province of South Africa, the Cango Caves are the country’s oldest tourist attraction.

Choose the standard heritage tour or the more demanding adventure tour. Either way, knowledgeable and experienced guides will take you through narrow cracks, vast chambers and steep rock formations.
