5 Cool travel challenges to complete in 2017
Love to travel never find the time or money to take a spontaneous trip? This year, there shouldn’t be any excuses. With Greyhound’s affordable rates and your enthusiasm for seeing our beautiful country, it shouldn’t be a difficult decision. Knowing that we perform better when we challenge ourselves, why not try these challenges throughout the year? Plan around work by using public holidays and the long weekends that await, take your car or even a Greyhound coach, and start ticking these challenges off your list. For the best results, share your experiences and challenge your friends to do the same.
- Take a selfie in these locations
Let the creativity flow with this one. Why not go on a hunt for locations that offer any of the following and then take a selfie there.
– A lighthouse
– A prison cell
– A canon
– A traditional village
– A shipwreck
- Visit all islands around South Africa
Contrary to popular belief, Robben Island isn’t the only Island to visit around the South African coastline. Apart from the coastal Islands, South Africa has several inland dam and lake islands. Do a bit of research on these islands, visit them and educate your friends on your findings.
- Visit and photograph at least five of our 20+ waterfalls
South Africa has some of the most beautiful and magical waterfalls. Why not go on a waterfall hunt and discover at least five waterfalls you have never heard of before. Snap a few photographs of these and share it with your friends.
- Make a snow angel
Go find yourself some snow and make a snow angel. Your friends will surely be impressed as snow in our beautiful country is considered a rarity. Why not visit Tiffendell Ski Resort in the Southern Drakensberg? Here you can learn to ski or snowboard (among several other activities) and, of course, make a snow angel. If you are feeling very adventurous, why not travel to Lesotho and visit Afriski?
- Go hunting: Photograph the each of the big five in one day
Sure, you might have seen them several times, but it could be quite a challenge to find and photograph each of the Big 5 in one day, especially with a cell phone. There are hundreds of reserves to visit for this purpose, make your pick and start snapping.
