Metropolitan Jozi is not short of outdoor adventures, fitness activities and sports teams and clubs to get involved with. Regular sports clubs offering rugby, hockey and soccer are a dime a dozen in the city, but the lesser-known adventure sports clubs and spots are not to be overlooked!
Here are 4 adventure sports clubs and activities to enjoy on a day out in Randburg:
Get out for a day in the sun, stand-up paddling on the beautiful Emmarentia Dam. SUP Fitness offers equipment rental if you can SUP or lessons if you’ve never braved the waters before. All ages will be enthralled by this outing and SUP Fitness even offers parties and team buildings so you can extend the fun and invite everyone you know!
Address: Ferndale on Republic, Republic Rd, Ferndale, Randburg, 2194
With 3 courses of 9 holes each, in between the bougainvillaea, palm trees and cycads, Adventure Golf in Randburg is the perfect outing for the budding golf man, kid’s parties or even a cute first date! The scenic courses take you across bridges, past waterfalls and even past a lazy family of Koi fish in the pond. Taking about an hour and a half, it’s the ideal after-work activity or even a lazy Sunday morning excursion.
Situated in James and Ethel Gray Park, Acrobranch in Melrose is the day under the trees that you’ve dreamt about since you were a kid climbing on the trees in the park! Ziplines and swinging bridges, Tarzan jumping and so much more awaits you amongst the trees. Offering courses aimed at adults and children, Ethel Gray Park and Acrobranch have the perfect adventure day planned!
Adventure surely awaits at CityROCK indoor climbing gym. The tall walls offer both sports climbing where you can belay friends or auto-belay yourself as well as lead climbing if you are a seasoned climber. Not wanting to clip into a harness and scurry up a 15m wall? That’s okay too, CityROCK has bouldering routes for you on walls of 2-4 metres without a rope or harness. Safety and adrenaline-pumping fun are mixed together with chalk on the climbing walls at CityROCK.

Live Easy offers Nano Units with security for those overnight adventures, modern and sleek aesthetics so you can come home to comfort and prime location, central to all the activity spots.
