The natural diversity of the landscapes in and around Cape Town allows for a great number of outdoor sports. They are a wonderful way of closely and intensely experiencing nature. Hiking, abseiling, kayaking on rivers and at the coast, biking and mountain biking, trout fishing and deep sea fishing, surfing and windsurfing, diving, kite surfing and paragliding, golf and lately also sandboarding on the dunes, all find ideal conditions in this little corner of the world.
It is fortunately not necessary for you to be an experienced enthusiast to take part. For most of the sports there are schools in the area where the beginner can get started at a reasonable price. There are also a couple of specialised tour operators.
