Adventure Races

Adventure Racing is a fun concept of combining the following sport disciplines: mountain biking, running/trekking, kayaking and navigation. In this shorter version of adventure racing, you only need to be able to read a Google Map to orienteer yourself from point to point. Kinetic Events and Addicted2Adventure.co.za has joined hands when it comes to the organisation of the 25km Adventure Races in South Africa which has been organised by the former for many years. Beginners, more advanced athletes and the hard core racers out there are all welcome! Who's joining us?

Adventure Holidays

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, there's no indication when the tourism industry will open up again. We will inform everyone on social media, our website & to all our e-newsletter subscribers once the below planned holidays will re-open for bookings and to confirm the new dates, should it be the case. Thank you for your understanding.

Check out our adventure trips & holidays which ranges between 1 day, weekends, 1 week & longer...

Adventure Road Trips

Hungry to take on the open road again and explore? The words 'road trip' immediately creates some butterflies in ones' stomach and by adding adventure on top of it seals the deal. Let's support the local businesses in South Africa, especially the 'platteland'. Our packages are very affordable as we know that most of you are strapped for cash during these uncertain times. Social distancing will be applied as you will drive your OWN vehicle and the accommodation as well as activities will be arranged within the COVID-19 safety rules.

A2A Co-Founder Jolene, says:

Thinus and myself are absolutely ADDICTED2ADVENTURE! How and why did we start Addicted2Adventure? Every time when we told a friend/colleague/ acquaintance about an adventurous outing we enjoyed over a weekend (or they just saw our pics on Facebook), their response would be “you always do such awesome/ exciting/ outdoorsy events! I would love to do that as well”. When I ask them why they don’t…their response would be: “I don’t want to go alone, I don’t know what to do, I don’t enjoy organising things, I don’t know where to start!”
Sooo… Addicted2Adventure was born in Jan 2012!

Thinus, A2A Co-Founder, adds:

Addicted2Adventure (A2A) loads adventurous happenings and trips (that we will mostly attend ourselves) on our website … anybody who wants to experience any sort of adventure are welcome to join us – as easy as that! We do all the research (venues, prices, directions, dates, price negotiations etc.) on your behalf. You decide whether you want to join us or not – without paying any membership fee! We love to meet new (adventurous) people, go to new (adventurous) places and experience new (adventurous) things.
