Shark Cage in South Africa

The coast off South Africa is one of the most populated areas for great white sharks mostly because of the high number of penguins and seals that is a year-round buffet for the sharks. Being inside a shark-proof metal cage can provide tourists with the opportunity to observe these amazing sharks. There are many ways to partake in this activity including using scuba gear to go below the surface in the cage or having the cage partly out of water, so the observers can come up for air whenever they choose. When choosing a company to go on the shark cage, be sure to find a trusted company with years of experience. 

Bungy jumping off Victoria Falls Bridge 

Imagine yourself standing on the bridge, marking the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, with the roaring Zambezi River 420 feet below. You are all strapped in in ankle and body harness with adrenaline rushing through you. You take the leap and quickly are soaring down weightlessly through the air about 111 meters down around one of the seven wonders of the world. Soon after, you are brought back up to the bridge after the experience of a lifetime. This is the ultimate adrenaline rush.

Edge of Space Flight 

Space used to just be an experience for the trained astronauts, but Russia is trying to bring a taste of space to everyday people. Riders board a MiG-29 fighter jet and reach heights up to 20-22km at Mach 3.2. This is about the edge of space, giving the riders an opportunity to get a taste of space and the curvature of the earth is covered in blue fog on one side and the dark space covered with stars on the other side: an irreplaceable experience.
