Learn To Surf

Want to catch some waves, then why not learn to Surf? The Ballito area has some great surf, but not so great for beginners, we highly recommend a day out with Roxy Learn To Surf on Durban's Beachfront, It's a bit of a drive, but if you are a serious beginner, it will be well worth your trip, possibly one of the best places in KwaZulu-Natal to learn to surf.

Redwoods Riding School

Situated just fifteen minutes from Ballito in the rolling hills of the North Coast sugar belt, Redwoods is a friendly, intimate stable yard that is ideal for those who love to get out on the farm. Redwwods offers livery as well as lessons and out rides to people at all levels of riding.  If you are looking for something a little bit different,  relaxing Champagne breakfast rides are also offered.

Pupils are taught in the disciplines of show jumping and dressage and there are often have fun competitions at home. There are two sand arenas for riders to use at all times. Both have the correct jumping equipment and are marked out with dressage letters. 

The real beauty of Redwoods is that there are some of the best out rides in the area right on the stable doorstep. There are a number of dams nearby as well as a magnificent strip of natural forest, which make for wonderfully scenic and restful rides. 

You are guaranteed to make some special friends along the way!  The lush and peaceful Redwoods site is now also available as a unique wedding venue.

Are you looking for an exciting way to spend your free time, family time or teambuilding adventure? Clubventure is a place of adventure and is located 15km inland from Ballito.

Clubventure offers a 1.5 km Zipline Tour. Guides will strap you into your harness, provide a briefing and accompany your group, while you experience your adventure from a bird’s eye view. On this eco-adventure, you slide along steel zipline cables from platform to platform across the Sampoya River, using approved full-body safety harnesses and equipment. Then proceed to slide on a 400 m cable from the top of the mountain, enjoying views of the lush surroundings. And the best part – with a parachute attached to you, the ‘parazip’ enables you to experience a feeling of parachuting down the mountain whilst being safely attached to a zipline cable. What could be more fun? Clubventure has a full scuba diving training facility that boasts an 800 000 litre scuba training pool, a lecture room, gear room, gear sales, compressor room, as well as accommodation. Clubventure is an authorised dealer for the Dolphin coast and provides and sells scuba gear at affordable prices. For those who would like to try scuba diving before enrolling for a scuba course, a 3 hour Discover Scuba Diving Experience is the answer. You will learn about scuba equipment and the role of the equipment in diving. This is a quick introduction into Scuba Diving. For most people, when breathing underwater, it’s an awesome sensation. Here is a warning though: when the Scuba Diving “bug” bites you ... there’s no turning back.

The Forest Paintball Arena is rugged terrain. Enjoy true war-combat style in the bush and the valley. Natural forest provides some protection from your enemies. Playing on half a hectare of playing field, advancing cautiously, you use the forest for camouflage. All gear is provided.

Clubventure also offers kid’s parties, teambuilding events, accommodation, school day excursions and school camps.
