8. Hit the slopes
South Africa’s Drakensberg mountains are high enough to get snow each winter — and snow equals skiing! Tiffindell Ski Resort, South Africa’s only one, is located near the town of Barkly East in the southern Drakensberg and offers skiing between June and August (don’t forget this is the Southern Hemisphere’s winter). This isn’t world-class skiing along the lines of Aspen or Chamonix — runs aren’t long and the snow is sometimes machine-made — but it’s good clean fun.
