4. You can set a route and go rock climbing
On an island better known for its mountains than its beaches, Reunion island easily makes up for this with numerous mountain sports — including over 6,000 cumulative meters of basalt climbing walls and some of the best climbing in Africa. Most of these routes are already bolted for sports climbing, but if you’re a real pro and have your heart set on trad, you may be interested in this new 7-pitch climb, called Zembrocal. Again, less experienced climbers can set out with a guide and gear through tour operators like Run Evasion.
