Why are you not spending more time outdoors?
What is your excuse? Too tired? Budget constraints? No time? No idea where to go or what to do?
In our annual survey we conducted a few months back we wanted to find out what the main obstacles are that prevent you from finding adventure.
So you’ve just got a new job and that lovely boss of yours is loading you up with projects and assignments. What a terrible person he is. Maybe you’ve got a screaming 2 year old that demands your full attention. Maybe the closest you have come to nature and adventure are the wild flowers in the mall and you lack the knowledge, skills or gear you think you might need.
It is so easy to let life stomp on you and prevent you from getting out there. And adventure is just the thing humans need to lower stress levels and forget about that lovely boss for a while.
A hike in the Drakensberg, scuba diving, or testing your wits rock climbing is the best thing you could do for your mind, body and soul. It will leave you happier, healthier and more grounded with a greater sense of perspective to face life’s challenges.
I don’t know where to go
Our solution? Give us a call. Come visit us at our ‘base camp’ where we can discuss the various travel options over a beer and pizza. We have been active in the adventure travel industry in South Africa for over 15 years. So yes, we know of some really cool spots.
We can advise you on what activity to. Yes we have heard it all. My knees are buggered. I’m scared of heights. I’m allergic to water….so…..lets connect and find out what tour suites you best. We have an incredible selection of tours to choose from.
We are also continually evolving depending on our client’s needs. In fact, a lot of our tours have been borne from ideas from our clients. We have categorized our adventure travel packages into the various adventure ‘genres’. They include Marine, Wildlife, Active, Trekking and day tour adventures.
I’m all alone and have no one to go with
Oh Woe is you. We have a box of sympathy that you can have. If you don’t come right with rent-a-friend, fear not, we have a solution for you. Join one of our tours where we combine like-minded people with the same interests. How cool is that?
You can change your name from ‘Norman No Friends’ as you will definitely make friends on our tours. (Just bring the glue and scissors) In fact, many a deep and meaningful relationship had been forged on our tours. Adversity and challenges seem to bring people together in a big way.
Adventure Travel is too expensive
Yes it is…If you travel alone that is. But we have just worked out that if you join one of our tours you will not be alone. And guess what that means? It’s time for a lesson on economics. The men in suites call in economies of scale. An incredible phenomenon that allows you to afford a tour as you be sharing some of the major costs like transport and guide.
Research shows that you can save up to 50% on a tour by joining an existing tour group. If you name is Norman No Friends and you would like to keep it that way then you may have to dig deep into those pockets. We also supply a lot of the equipment depending on the tour package like tents for example. So no need to lighten the load in your wallet just yet.
I don’t have the right equipment or gear
We get it. Equipment can be pretty costly and you don’t want to invest in a sleeping bag that may never use again. This is where the advantages of using an adventure travel company come to the rescue. We supply most of the equipment on our tours.
If you are hiking for example, we supply all the tents, sleeping mats, cooking at eating utensils. Obviously there are still items that you would still need, Wetsuits for diving, Backpack and sleeping bags for trekking or harnesses for climbing.
We have all of this gear available to rent. So no need to spend your hard earned cash on that. Adventure tours vary. Mountain trekking requires a different type of gear to a walking safari. The conditions vary considerably from freezing cold to hot. We have experts that can advise you on the type of conditions to be expected and how to prepare for them. And thus avid potentially dangerous conditions like hypothermia or dehydration.
I have no idea what I’m doing
The journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. 90% of our clients are new to adventure!!! And we love it!!! Our passion is adventure, travel and people. We love teaching people and involving them in our passion. We walk the path with every aspect of a tour.
If it’s Kilimanjaro you want to do, we will be with you on Saturday morning training with you to get you mountaineering fit. We will spend time with you. Our guides will come to shops with you to assist with clothing. And you have 24/7 access to our various package experts.
