How to turn your life into an adventure

Live while you still can; this mantra has resonated with many, especially during this current pandemic. Some have learnt that there should be more to life than just focusing on work or setting goals.

And if you are among those who have committed to becoming larger-than-life personas, below are some of the fun activities you can engage in for a more exciting and adventurous life.




Go exploring into the wilderness. Camping involves spending nights outdoors away from home and most likely in a tent. How you spend your time depends on who you’re with; when you are out with friends you can engage in camping around a fire as you play music, eat and drink. As a couple, you can choose to watch the sunrise together or take a walk into the sunset as you later retreat to your tent. For individuals, meditation, journaling or playing music are all nice ways of enjoying your camping experience. 


Bird watching

If you are looking for an exciting and calming experience, then bird watching is right for you. This form of wildlife observation is a unique recreational activity where one sets out to watch birds — bask in the sight and sounds of these beautiful and fascinating features. If you want to enjoy this activity, you need a pair of binoculars that will allow you to have a clear view, where you will be able to look and at the same time listen to the creatures.

Go to the beach

This is a fairly common activity but it never loses its appeal. You can never tire from enjoying the cool breeze of the water, its view is always breath-taking. Whether alone or with family, you can be sure to have a fun time at the beach. Strolling by the water as you enjoy the feel of the sand can make your stay fun and a memorable experience.

National parks

National parks are known for their stunning views and exciting wildlife. If you are a lover of nature then you would obviously enjoy watching animals such as lions, elephants, giraffes, among others, as you drive through the park. You can choose to do this in a group as it can be more exciting marvelling at these exciting creatures with others.

Canopy walk

The Canopy walk in Nyungwe Forest National park is a famous one in Rwanda. Situated above the beautiful rainforest of Nyungwe National Park, the canopy walkway provides an exciting perspective of the wilderness and the beauty of wildlife. You can choose to go and enjoy this beautiful scenery as you bask in the crisp coldness of this expansive forest. 


Kayaking is the use of a kayak (a narrow watercraft) to move across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. What makes this activity more fun is the excitement that comes with racing along rustling waters, it gives a person an added layer of adventure.

Gorilla trekking

Most people admit that Gorilla trekking, especially in Rwanda, is magnificent. It stands as the country’s unrivalled main attraction and is said to be worth the time, cost, and energy. Spending time in the wild with these amazing animals in person can be a great experience. 

Bungee jumping 

As scary as it looks, bungee jumping is a fairly famous activity. If you want an adrenaline rush or are naturally drawn to thrill-seeking activities, bungee jumping is for you. The activity involves a person jumping from a great height while connected to a large elastic cord. And as you have fun, you also have the advantage of facing certain fears in your life.

Mountain hiking

Hiking is great way of getting connected with the outdoors. It is also one of the best ways of appreciating and enjoying nature because as you embark on this activity, you get to explore different places in nature. This, on the other hand, helps you refresh and leave your worries about family, work and other fears. When hiking, you need to be equipped with the right tools such as navigation tools, water, food, right clothing among others.
