Stage 5: Eastern Cape

One of the real highlights of our Expedition is the inclusion of a 10 day stay at Quest Africa! Located on the prestigious Kaba Game Farm in the Eastern Cape, Quest offers a very unique experience that is sure to leave a lifelong impression on the hearts and lives of our students. Their vision is to facilitate the development and character of young people- to give them a true sense of purpose and direction in their lives, as well as the opportunity to grow and challenge themselves in an environment that is both safe and true to life.

We travel along the magical Garden Route and stop at a few popular destinations. Bloukrans Bungy Jump is our first activity for the day! Bloukrans Bungy Jump is the highest jump in the world and is an experience of a life time! We venture into the mystical Knysna forest and tackle some of its most challenging and exciting hiking trails.

A central theme of Quest is the development of strong character traits – courage, perseverance, patience, tolerance, integrity, sense of humour etc. This is achieved through coaching but also through facing and overcoming a variety of challenges, both individually and as part of a team. Throughout the range of activities we use every opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork abilities involving practical experience in true to life situations.

With stunning sunsets and clear, starry nights, the Baviaans offers a taste of life at its unspoilt best. The area encompasses the World Heritage Site and Wilderness area of the Baviaanskloof. The Baviaanskloof is arguably one of South Africa’s best kept secrets, simply because it’s hidden spots are so hard to reach. We take to the mountains with knowledgeable local guides and explore its wild ways. We’ll sleep in caves, fish black bass, play bushveld golf and build our own shelters! This is big Sky Country at its best!
