To say that 2020 has been a tough year is an understatement. The impact of COVID-19 has been felt globally and here in South Africa. One of the most affected groups has to be school going children, specifically teenagers, who have had their school year disrupted, missed out on sport and outdoor activities as well as social interaction. But as we start to move out of this pandemic, there is a light at the end of the tunnel – in the form of the Warriors Adventure Tour.  

The Warriors Adventure Tour is an explosive 6-day action packed adventure around South Africa, hosted by the Warriors Academy, an international accredited Gap year and school tour program provider. The Warriors Adventure Tour has been specifically designed to provide young adults between the ages of 15 – 18 years old with a week full of adventure and outdoor activities that facilitate teamwork, responsibility, problem-solving and accountability.
