When the warm summer days come around, it means it’s time for you and the family to hit the outdoors for some memorable moments together. Let’s take a look at some of the fun outdoor adventures you and your loved ones can indulge in and how you can make the most out of them with the right financial assistance.
Glamping Is The New Camping
Dubbed 2020’s Hottest Travel Trend by Forbes Magazine, glamping is one of the best ways to spend some outdoor time with family, friends and loved ones. In simple terms, glamping is camping that involves the facilities of a hotel. So instead of normal camping tents, you will have luxury tents or cabins filled with all the amenities of an Airbnb or hotel room. Sounds amazing, right? Well, what if we told you there are luxury glamping spots right here in South Africa worth exploring? You’re spoiled with lots of options and packages, some with exciting add-ons like water sport activities, luxurious spa treatments and fine dining experiences to choose from, so gather the family and go try something new.
Take A Long Road Trip
We have all been feeling the effects of being cooped up in the house due to different lockdown restrictions, and the outdoors is exciting for us. However, you may be feeling the excitement of trying out different destinations, so why not consider a long road trip that goes on for days? There are amazing routes in South Africa, from the Western Cape to the Eastern Cape and even Limpopo. Choose your favourite route(s), load up your caravan, and hit the road for a couple of days of bonding and exploring the beauty that is Mzansi.
Put Up Your “Gone Fishing Sign” And Go Fishing
South Africa’s coasts are undeniably beautiful. Many people always look forward to visiting the beachside for a cross between the warm sun and cool ocean water, and picnics by the beachside with loved ones have become famous among travellers. However, fishing – a timeless activity – still has a special place (or three) in South Africans’ hearts. You can visit some of the best boating and fishing spots South Africa has to offer and make it an experience to remember. Fire up your family fishing boat, and let’s go get the catch of the day every day.
Speaking Of Hitting The Waters…
There are lots of fun activities you and your loved ones can indulge in while enjoying the amazing ocean or river waters. Depending on your location, water capacity and activity knowledge and capabilities, you can consider activities such as surfing, river rafting, tubing, swimming in tidal pools, jet skiing and more. The waters are yours to explore, so why not try a few things?
All This Biking For You
South Africa is not just a car road trip worthy country; even from an aeroplane view, it looks amazing, so imagine how it looks while on a motorcycle? You can follow the road trip destination routes we shared earlier or explore the more bike-specific routes for you and your friends’ next convoy trip.
You can also try out bicycle-friendly routes and destinations if you are feeling adventurous. There are incredible views and attractions such as magnificent waterfalls in the Midlands Meander in KwaZulu-Natal, Knysna Forest (Western Cape) and Modderfontein’s (Gauteng) amazing birdlife, or Suikerbosrand’s zebras, wildebeests and more animals waiting for you. And if you are looking for an experience that is as exhilarating and exciting, such as quad-biking, there are destination options for those too.

All these exciting options can be obtainable when you have the right financial backing with you. If you and your loved ones are considering getting your own equipment for your newfound sense of adventure, then leisure finance from WesBank may just be the thing for you. You can get jet ski, quad bike, boat, caravan, trailer and golf cart finance quick and easy, so you can focus on creating memorable moments with those who matter.

In Closing, It’s About The People You’re With
While all the options and activities may seem like fun, when done with the right people, they can become magically memorable moments. Invest in creating and seizing these wonderful experiences with those you love and care for, and don’t let money be the hindrance that blocks you from having these wonderful memories. Find the right activity or activities for you and yours, and let the rest take care of itself. See you on your next adventure.
