QUIZ: What’s your Cape Union Mart adventure style?

South African adventure lovers can take advantage of the upcoming April and May holidays by planning their next exciting getaway and feeding their insatiable appetites for the great outdoors.

Cape Union Mart has designed a ‘Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-Style’ quiz to help people pick their perfect adventure based on their specific style. Squiz through the quiz below to find where to go and what to take.

Towards the end of last year, Cape Town Tourism’s Domestic Travel Intent report found 85% of respondents plan to travel domestically in 2023. Recognising this, Cape Union Mart has created this quiz to match people’s personalities with their ideal local destinations.

Odile Hufkie, Marketing Manager at Cape Union Mart, says: “As experts in adventure, we wanted to help people plot bucket-list adventures this holiday. Our quiz quickly tells you if you’re a casual adventurer, thrill seeker or outdoor lover. We then match your interests with local hotspots and must-have gear.”

The Travel Adventurer (mostly As)

If you view South Africa as your oyster and want to explore it all, then you’re a travel adventurer. The best part about being a travel adventurer in Mzansi is very few countries can compete with our sheer natural beauty, from mesmerising mountains to our golden desert landscapes and tranquil beaches for hot, sunny days.

Where you should go: Your appetite for beauty hotspots means you’d be a great match for the Garden Route, the Kruger National Park, or the Elephant Coast.

What you should take: Capture your experiences with the DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone, with its stunning aerial view video footage and high-resolution photos. Pairing it with its smart controller offers more rotation range for low-angle shots and True Vertical Shooting for endless creative opportunities.


For the Casual Adventurer (mostly Bs)

You’re a casual adventurer as you enjoy an occasional outdoor adventure, like camping with the family or a relaxed hike with friends.

Where you should go: There are various camping trails in South Africa where casual adventurers can lose themselves in the great outdoors with the option to pitch their tents and soak in natural surroundings. Adventurers can explore Port Beaufort’s 52.8km Whale Trail or challenge themselves along KwaZulu-Natal’s Nandi Falls Loop.

What you should take: “As exciting as it may be to plan an extended hike along one of our country’s adventurous trails, it’s crucial that hikers equip themselves with sturdy and durable footwear made from high-quality and long-lasting materials. This can include the KEEN Women’s Targhee Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots or the K-Way Elements Men’s Nova Shoes,” adds Hufkie.


For the Outdoor Adventurer (mostly Cs)

Outdoor adventurers are known for their bravery and excitement about the most extreme activities, from bungee jumping to skydiving or kayaking. Whether it’s jumping out of a plane or off a bridge, so long as it’s safe, you’re here for it.


Where you should go: South African outdoor adventurers can get their hearts racing these Easter holidays by jumping off Kloofing Suicide Gorge, which, as the name suggests, is reserved for the fearless and down-right adventurous. It includes a daring combination of breathtaking hiking trails and compulsory jumps of up to 14 meters.

If this didn’t sound thrilling enough, extreme adventurers should visit South Africa’s Wild Swing, the world’s highest gorge swing. This 100-metre swing will give outdoor adventurers the highest, fastest, and steepest swinging experience, in the scenic surrounds of Oribi Gorge.

What you should take: Consider investing in high-quality gear and equipment to prepare for whatever your adventure throws at you. That includes keeping warm during cold weather with K-Way Men’s Doug Down and Women’s Robin Down jackets. Stay hydrated on long hikes with a Stanley Classic Vacuum Flask.
