Our people:

Outdoor Educators use skilled presenters: Our leader is a person with more than 23 years of hands – on experience in the field of Adventure Based learning and training. Outdoor Educators’ facilitators are competent, well- trained facilitators/ activity specialists and people with Christian values.

Safety aspects:

Although programs and activities make provision for many practical experiences, personal safety of participants is a top priority throughout the event.

Groups are small with manageable numbers for safety reasons and to ensure individual attention.

Where are we situated?

We are based in Hilton, KZN.

With a well- equipped mobile unit, we can present programs to our clients at the venue of their choice. Some of the more popular venues that we often visit include Country Lodges, Hotels and Conference Centres in the KZN Midlands, Drakensberg and Coastal areas.

We are also operational at Cumberland Nature Reserve, one of the most beautiful natural treasure troves, flourishing with an abundance of wild life, beautiful scenery and ideal opportunities for outdoor and adventure related activities. Cumberland Nature Reserve is situated only 15 km from Pietermaritzburg in the KZN Midlands.

Program structure:

We use practical, fun and adventure related activities with positive experiences as our “educational/ training tools” and while having fun our clients also have the opportunity to “learn through experience” and to grow closer to each other.

We are flexible in the design of programs, and welcome your requests. It is important that we meet YOUR objectives to ensure optimum benefit during every experience.

Team Building with us:

Our programs can be of a recreational – fun nature or more comprehensive in structure to involve a more detailed learning experience.

Our quality fun – filled team building experiences are custom designed to your specific needs.

We can facilitate the learning of team skills and by skilled reviewing of activities and experiences, participants get the opportunity to discover and reinforce important team values and principles.

Through this process, we encourage and empower teams to reach their fullest potential in working together.

We help and encourage teams to identify possible areas in the work – place and in personal lives where they still need to grow and change. We encourage positive change and the commitment within people to make these changes.

We prefer to keep our programs as practical as possible and Adventure Based Learning normally forms an integral part of what we do.

  • Hello. I started Gap Academy in Pietermaritzburg 8 years ago. I would be very interested in meeting with you to see if we could establish a working relationship and possibly build in a time with you for the students on an annual base and as part of their curriculum at GAP. Please kindly contact me on this email or on 082 3721737. Many thanks and I look forward to meeting you. Regards Brenda
