Adventure guiding is growing fast in the world and especially in South Africa with our amazing range of outdoor venues. Skills range from abseiling to ziplining, including rafting, hiking, 4X4, mountain biking and many more.

Adventure Standards Africa is committed to high standards of professional guiding and training for outdoor careers. We run induction courses for youth, and we train adventure guides in a range of skills to prepare them for a life leading people in exciting activities.

We qualify guides for legal registration in terms of the Tourism Act in South Africa. We also provide advice and consultancy for operators and lodges concerning the law, markets and equipment.

We encourage a culture of safety wherever adventures are on offer. Professionalism means caring for people and planet while proving mastery of technical skills, communication and leadership.
