For those who may have read my recent blog on heli-biking in Queenstown NZ- here is something that topped that experience!
I returned over the weekend from a fantastic few days in the Kruger - a wildlife sanctuary (about the size of Wales) in South Africa where we were fortunate enough to accompany 2 armed rangers on a mountain bike trail ride following existing game trails (and making a few trails of our own).
Just returned from Queenstown and some awesome heli-biking in the Remarkables. Vertigo bikes in Queenstown provided a full (and excellent) service and supplied everything. Good intermediate to advanced skills required to stay alive and a good rush - 5,000ft decent in two hours (includes stops to take in the views), quite technical and fast with a bit of terror thrown in. Highly recommended.
It's back to Manly Dam for me over the week-end but I will be dreaming of other places.
