Perhaps you’ve been daydreaming about spending a starry night in the bush while listening to the spine-tingling roars of an African lion, or you’ve been itching to do something that will get your adrenaline pumping. While travel and ticking things off our bucket list may not be an option right now, there is one thing that may ease our wanderlust – watching YouTube videos. Well, one video in particular.
Dude Perfect, a popular YouTube channel with over 56 million subscribers, recently released an incredible video of themselves ticking off bucket list activities in South Africa, and we’re pretty jealous. It seems we’re not the only ones dreaming of safaris and bungee jumping, as the video has quickly gone viral, gaining more than 12 million views in more than a week.
The video features five friends, Coby Cotton, Garret Hilbert, Cory Cotton, Cody Jones and Tyler Toney, as they take us along on a thrilling adventure. First up, paragliding. In the video, Jones can be seen taking the plunge as he paraglides off Lion’s Head with a skilled instructor.
While the 15-minute experience looks incredible, no South African bucket list is complete without heading out on safari, and that’s exactly what Toney and Hilbert do. The pair spend a few days exploring the Pilanesberg National Park as they attempt to spot the famous Big 5.
Jumping Bloukrans Bridge, one of the world’s highest bungee bridges, climbing Lion’s Head, frolicking with African penguins, visiting an elephant sanctuary and shark cage diving in Gansbaai were just a few activities these friends got up to.
