The Spring Quest - August To October

Spring is fresh, and a mixture of the seasons, stay prepared with your clothing... Again we are only at Base Camp for about 15% of the Quest, and now we move over towards the magical and popular Cape Province. Nothing can prepare one for the majestic presence of Table Mountain, the white sandy beaches and the radiant blue ocean along the Cape coastline. A South African experience would be incomplete without a visit the fairest Cape of them all. The Spring Quest presents both a celebration of South African culture and cuisine, and opportunities to continue to test the Warrior resolve through outdoor challenges whilst tempered with unique cultural and social experiences. Imagine a five day hike on the infamous Wild Coast of Southern Africa, a more relaxing tour of the Garden Route, interaction with the Knysna elephants, a visit to the historic Robben Island, a tour of the Cape wine lands, a four day extreme Orange River rafting experience and the adrenalin rush of a skydive.
