4exchange activities: a worldly experience in south africa

Your stay in South Africa is undoubtedly a 'once in a lifetime experience'. And while you are living that experience, surely you want to see as much of beautiful South Africa as possible.

We regularly organize affordable activities and outings to the most amazing spots in the Western Cape. These activities give you an insight in South Africa, as well as a chance to meet other students, course participants and volunteers from 4exchange.


In the surroundings of Cape Town there are numerous extraordinary places to spend a day or a weekend. Many of these spots are relatively easy to find, and therefore are offered by all tour operators and locals. However, our activities aim to take you to these hidden gems, the ones you wouldn't find on your own (or through tour operators) that easily.


Some 4exchange activities


Weekend in Cederberg

This adventurous weekend in Cederberg area is one of the 4exchange activities you’ll make sure not to miss. We spend the night in 'the middle of nowhere' in a lovely backpacker farm with African host and hostess Gerrit and Chantal, who will serve us authentic Afrikaanse 'kos' at night. During the day we entertain ourselves culturally through a visit to San Rock Art, and still our adventurous hunger during the (rather intensive) Wolfberg Arch hike. Afterwords there is more than enough time for some well-deserved relaxation at the pool and at the natural water pools of Maalgat.We will be driving through Cederberg's rough nature in a Nomad Adventure truck.

Garden Route Trip
What a way to explore the famous Garden Route of South Africa! This weekend trip takes you past well-known spots along the Garden Route such as Wilderness, Knysna, Stormsriver en Oudtshoorn. Along the way there a plenty of activities lined up, for you to choose between taking a walk on an elephant of visiting a monkey park. Looking for some more adventurous thrills? How about a hike through the Cango Caves, swimming in a waterfall or touring around on an ostrich's back? For the real daredevils there's the opportunity to do the highest bungee jump in the world.
