The N3 Gateway region of South Africa is well endowed with natural landscapes that provide endless options when it comes to adventure activities.
If the idea of sunshine and white water floats your boat, rafting down the Vaal , Tugela or Umkomaas Rivers is a fantastic way to spend a day with friends, family or colleagues on a team building exercise.
Over and above the fly-fishing, mountain biking and trail running on offer in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, the adventure seeker looking for something a little different can abseil down the mighty Howick Falls or fly through the canopy of the mist-belt forest on the Karkloof Canopy Tour.
For those that have always dreamt of soaring with the birds, a tandem paragliding flight in the foothills of the Drakensberg above the village of Bulwer or a flight in a glider or sailplane at Howick Flying Club on the R617 just past Midmar Dam are highly recommended.
Another aerial adventure well suited to the N3 corridor is hot air ballooning. You can choose from a range of scenic location in which to enjoy this experience including Clarens, the Drakensberg and the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
