The Ultimate Senior Scout Adventure
from 10 to 21 December 2020

Important Adventure Update

Breaking News: It is with much regret that despite every attempt to find alternative ways of running a Senior Scout Adventure, we have been unable to prove to ourselves, as a committee, that all the required safety mechanisms would be in place to allow us to run the event. The uncertainty around the expected ’second wave’ timing and possible Government and Scouts SA regulations at this time do not allow for bookings and commitments to be made.

Accordingly, we have no option other than to cancel the 2020 Adventure. It is with extreme reluctance that we have made this decision and it is indeed disappointing that again, for the second time in 50 years, we have not been able to hold an Adventure..

The Adventure Committee will continue to strive for the return of the Senior Scout Adventure, in the Cederberg, in 2022 in the same format that has proved so uniquely successful over these past five decades.

We will come through this difficult time and sincerely hope to be able to welcome you back to another unforgettable Adventure in December 2022.

What is the Adventure About?

The Adventure programme provides unforgettable adventure and fun in the famous backpacking country of the Cederberg Wilderness Area along rugged, rocky trails. Programme features combine the best of advanced Scouting to provide you with fun and a real challenge - water activities, rock climbing, the ultimate challenge game, underwater diving, sailing, and many more!

Where is the Adventure held?

The Cederberg mountains (Afrikaans: Sederberg) and nature reserve are located near Clanwilliam, approximately 300 km north of Cape Town, South Africa at about 32°30′S 19°0′E. The mountain range is named after the endangered Clanwilliam Cedar (Widdringtonia wallichii - old name was Widdringtonia cedarbergensis) , which is a tree endemic to the area. The mountains are noted for dramatic rock formations and San rock art. The Cederberg Wilderness Area is administered by CapeNature.

How to book for the Adventure
