Earth

South Africa's Earth is home to some of the oldest mountain ranges in the world, which are still slowly but surely growing and eroding at the same time. The evolution is very stable which results in the absence of earthquakes. It creates a very fun playground for people loving the dirt under their feet, nails or tires. All round, South Africa has spectacular sceneries in every direction. From mountain tops, gorges, waterfalls, rivers, downhill slopes, boulders, cliffs and ocean views, with lots of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

One of the most versatile adventure experience is the rafting adventure in the Northern Cape province. A wide range of rivers with ‘rapids’ for all levels will take you to a higher consciousness whilst experiencing the raw and ancient beauty that South Africa has to offer. The multi-day hiking adventures on the other hand, are a perfect way to ground and connect with our true existence. Sometimes it takes to lose oneself, to find oneself.

South Africa is labelled as a temperate climate because the Atlantic and Indian ocean surrounds South Africa on three sides. Climate zones vary greatly due to the diversity in topography and oceanic influences. From extreme deserts up North, to the lush subtropical climate in the East, South Africa has everything your heart desires. Winters in South Africa occur between June and August.

The Western Cape has a Mediterranean Climate. It is unusual to have rain in summertime and temperatures are very stable around 28°C but the prevailing South Easterly wind (called the Cape Doctor) brings a cooling effect. When it is hot (+30°C), the South Easter does not come through which is perfect for mountain biking through countless single tracks in the winelands or in the forests. In winter, a North Westerly breeze occurs and can bring rain for about 3 days, after which it clears up again. From the Eastern Cape all the way to KwaZulu-Natal, rainfall is distributed more evenly throughout the year with a gradually changing climate from Mediterranean to subtropical, producing a green landscape. Temperatures don’t fluctuate vastly on the Indian Ocean coastline. The Johannesburg region has a pretty mild climate, with summers embracing the warmth and wind free. It is neither too humid nor too hot although the rainy season is in summer. Rainstorms are brief but can be harsh, luckily, they are quickly followed by a nice warm sunshine. Wintertime in Johannesburg, city of gold, is soft and clear but nights can be rather cold.

South Africa has an enormous biodiversity. The Western Cape has more plant species than all of Europe and is famous for the flower season when the fynbos is blossoming (August – September). Other parts of South Africa are world famous for the Big 5 sightings and many other animals. This natural beauty is a spectacular experience and it is considered a privilege to be able to blend in this scenery by doing the sports we love.
