A&K’s Extreme Adventures

written by | Posted on July 1st, 2009

Some other A&K packages include diving the Blue Hole in Belize, an ascent to Everest Base Camp in Nepal, tracking polar bears in Norway, and dog sledding in the Arctic, among others.

Then there is what the company calls South Africa and Botswana: Seeking The Ultimate Thrill, a 12-day, spine-tingling joyride through these African nations. For approximately $14,000, adventurers will take the wheel of a Formula-1 racecar at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour, ride the backseat of a supersonic fighter jet that makes a vertical climb to 50,000 ft., have a close encounter with great white sharks in Gansbaal, stalk brown hyenas in Makgadikgadi National Park and ride quad bikes on Kubu Island.
