We all love doing something different and unique, and with so many things on our bucket list, we wanted to introduce you to something that will be a jaw dropper.
This calls for some zorbing, we can call it a ball of fun.
Many consider it an extreme sport, however it can be considered a game depending on what it is used for. It is growing in the country and many people are starting to getting into it.
For those who are not familiar with what zorbing is, this is a transparent plastic ball you can either go into or wear. The traditional way to zorb is to go inside the ball and go down a slope and with other innovations like playing soccer, you can wear the ball.
Although it might seem a bit daunting at first, you will be aching to do it again once you have tried it.
Zorbing is just absolute fun, and will get the adrenaline pumping. It is also extra fun to get the entourage or the family together to join in on the fun.
Let's check out some places where you can find it around Johannesburg.
Jozi X is known for their fun and extreme activities, and they have also brought zorbing into mix to add some more fun into our lives.
They offer two different kinds of zorbing, Hydro Zorbng as well as Harness Zorbing. They are both quite an experience, we would encourage you to try both. Their Hydro involves a water chute and roller coaster so you can already imagine the ball of fun you'll be having.
