The most extreme
Gap Year Programme Today!
We believe Beyond Adventure offers the most exciting, exhilarating and comprehensive Gap Year program today. After spending an average of 4 380 days (12 years) in some sort of educational institution, every young person is faced with one of the biggest questions of their life. What am I going to do now?
This is where the Gap year program comes in. According to the dictionary, a "gap year" is a prolonged period between two major life stages. We believe the Beyond Adventure concept to be unique in South Africa.
The concept of Extreme Education was designed to provide a challenging environment for young people to discover and develop their leadership potential. Leadership deals with direction, vision, purpose and principles. The Beyond Leadership programme focuses on building the students up, making them aware of culture building, helping them with emotional bank account building and strengthening them as individuals functioning in a group context. Our program is designed to meet, challenge and grow the complete individual, body, soul and spirit, as we train tomorrow's leaders today.

A good facilitator could mean the difference between a successful group session and a failed one. For this reason, it is vital for any person who holds the responsibility of facilitating a group of people to learn and acquire facilitator skills.
Map work, orientation and navigation
Never be lost again. Spatial orientation is crucial for adapting to new environments and getting from one point to another. Without it, people will walk around in endless circles, never being able find which way they want to go.
Kayaking is fun, safe and suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.
Abseiling is an adrenaline packed activity that really does make you feel a rush of excitement. Lowering yourself down a sheer rock face is something most people would naturally and instinctly turn away from but with our supportive and encouraging instructors, everybody goes away with a huge sense of achievement, buzzing and wanting to do it all over again!
