Spirit of Adventure is located in the Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve. This a 1700 hectare reserve situated approximately 40km from Durban. It is home to giraffe, a variety of antelope, and in the region of 200 species of birds. Spirit of Adventure has used this setting since 1994 to conduct leadership, personal development and team building events for students from pre-school to tertiary; and more recently corporate & private events. Lectures, and experiential learning from our broad activity base, are used in the training. 

Our campsite can accommodate up to 120 learners in two, separate, 60 sleeper sites; with 4 staff beds per site. Learners are accommodated in rustic cabins each containing 2 triple bunk beds. Staff accommodation is also in rustic cabins each containing 2 x single beds. Learner & Staff ablutions are separate. No bedding is provided and no cutlery/crockery for youth 

We have the pleasure in outlining our proposal to you as follows: 

Your group will be split into teams, of approximately ten members in each. Each team will then fall under the professional guidance and supervision of an instructor. The instructor will make certain that every activity is done safely and enjoyably. These activities will take place on land, on the water and on the rock face. Spirit of Adventure activities are by nature exciting, enjoyable and adventurous. They are carried out in the context of the Aim of the course; as such they are preceded by Leadership theory and followed by review sessions in which students discover and express for themselves the key learning points.
