Spirit of Adventure - Abseiling

Spirit of Adventure is an adventure camp based at the Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve, which is just 35 minutes drive from Durban. The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife including giraffe, buffalo, warthog, wildebeest and many kinds of antelope; it is also well utilised for bird watching with over 200 bird types recorded.

We adopt a variety of approaches to school leadership camps, corporate teambuilding and the adventure world, specialising in various outdoor activities that take you from the Drakensburg to the coastlines.

Our trained guides take groups to select areas of the Drakensburg. You can choose to sleep in established campsites and do day hikes into the mountains; or alternatively groups can hike into the hills and overnight in some of the many Drakensberg caves or set up tents at suitable spots in these beautiful mountains.

Our comprehensive leadership camps for schools have been running in the reserve since 1994. Students from pre-primary through to university regularly complete our fun and character-building events.

Corporates equally enjoy rewarding events at our facility as well as at hotels and other venues across KZN. Our inventive activities allow for strategic interventions and staff development, or simply fun days out of the office.

Spirit of Adventure also offers the public abseiling (on the picturesque dam wall), flat water rafting, rock climbing (at a variety of scenic rock faces), rap jumping, high ropes, obstacle course, canoeing and kayaking. These activities allow for wonderful family days out as well as kids’ parties and bachelor events.

We will assess the need of your particular group, school or company and put together the right combination of activities that will maximise your adventure.
