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.
About our activities
Many people think of self-defense as a karate kick to the groin or jab in the eyes of an attacker. But self-defense is actually about using your smarts and we will teach you that.
Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes.
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!
Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling.
