Do you love learning new things?  Well, we have great news for you!  So does the Bucket List Genie!  That’s why she’s searched high and low for the most exciting skills experiences available in South Africa.  Most of these options are available in Cape Town, Gauteng and Durban, so take your pick and expand your horizons.  You never know where that new skill might take you…

After all, Marc Anthony said that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.  Make your downtime count with amazing skill building experiences.  We’ve seen this happen with people who have attended perfume making and beer making courses, as well as chocolate workshops.  Learn to pair wine with chocolate, or chocolate with whiskey for pure tasting pleasure.  There’s a class to enhance your natural-born skills!

A number of South African institutions offer cooking classes to suit your needs. Whether you’re looking to learn how to bake artisan bread or learn to cook before you leave your parents’ home, there’s a class for you!  Bring your partner along as you join other couples in an evening of cooking enjoyment, as each couple contributes a dish or two to a shared feast and a few choice beverages, or attend sushi classes with the masters and enjoy your favourite food at home.

No meal is complete without a good beverage on the side, so consider booking cocktail making classes or a beer making course with a group of friends.  Imagine introducing everyone to your very own brew next time they come over to your place to watch the game...

If you have a need for speed, don’t hesitate to sign up for our flying lessons.  Various flight training schools in South Africa have introductory lessons as well as advanced flying courses for aspiring pilots.  If you’d like to keep your wheels on terra firma, you could attend drifting lessons at your nearest drifting school.
