Beyond Adventure is an adventure academy. The main product is a year course of extreme education, focusing on the use of adventure activities to develop the individual as a whole. We also present adventure activities and teambuilding to tourists and corporate groups.
The Beyond Adventure, Extreme Education programme was launched on the first of February 2001. Beyond Adventure is located on the Sunshine Coast 150 kilometers north-east of Port Elizabeth in Port Alfred. Not only is the course itself one of the most beneficial ways in which a young person can find their potential but it also is conducted in one of the most beautiful places in South Africa.
We are housed in the Halyards Lodge close to the Port Alfred Marina (where we present our water activities). The Lodge is within walking distance of the beach and the town center. During 2008 we will be building our new facility on Mansfield Private Reserve, where most of our programme and adventure activities are presented. Mansfield borders on the Kowie River and is filled with beautiful natural splendor.
The Beyond Adventure programme is an “exhilarating year of your life” during which young people will discover and develop their leadership potential. A programme filled with vision, purpose, adventure and challenges. Students will be equipped with recognized qualifications but they will also acquire insight and develop the ability to make responsible and informed decisions regarding their future studies and career options. The certificate courses offered are an introduction to the fundamental concepts regarding the growing adventure tourism industry in South Africa today.
One-year adventure based leadership programme = R60 000 (all expenses for the year)
Teambuilding = R160 per session (contact us for outcomes)
Adventure Activities = R75-R100 (Depending on the activity)
