The Ultimate Senior Scout Adventure

It is with much regret that we have to announce that despite much hard work in attempting to gain permissions to use the Cederberg as the site for the 2018 Adventure, we have been unable to get all required permissions to allow us to run the Adventure.

Accordingly and given the time frames we need to prepare adequately, we have no option other than to cancel the 2018 Adventure.  It is with great difficulty that we have made this decision and it is indeed disappointing that for the first time in 50 years we have not been able to hold an Adventure as planned.

The Adventure Committee will continue to do its best to resolve current issues to ensure the 2020 Adventure runs. We hope that we will be able to welcome you back to this unique event in 2020.

Yours in Scouting
Adventure Committee

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 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 2018 Adventure
