Trips & Adventures

Since its inception in 2010, the Bush Babes Club members have gone “bush” in just about any way imaginable: they swam with dolphins, played on the pans of Kubu Island, enjoyed game viewing from elephant and horseback, abseiled down a 10 meter dam wall, jumped off a 20 storey building, conquered dunes and mountains in their 4x4’s and had more fun and adventures they ever bargained for. In true Bush Babes style they always make a difference too: the Mamoli Childrens Home in Mozambique, Wolf Sanctuary in Reitz and Wild Horses in Kaapsehoop are but a few of the outreaches they planned and executed.

 

Send an email to leisurebabe@bushbabes.co.za for the current year's program and any questions you might have. Also have a look at our Facebook page "Bush Babes Adventure and Safari Club" to see what we have been up to and what's in store.

 

A wine route in the Free State? You bet! With some great wines and adventures to be enjoyed on this trip with a difference, get ready for great food, pigeon shooting, bow shooting, quad biking and a visit to the immaculate Frankolin Creek.

Liberate the artist and literary within on his weekend away to awaken your creativity! No 4x4 needed, as long as you will be able to drive away with the dream board and painting that you created depicting your dream life. Oh, and prepare yourself for overindulging in great food, wine and of course Port!

Rhino Reach Out (Bela-Bela)

If you join us on this one, you will be able to have your (and your child's) photo taken with this tame rhino called Ronnie. Yes, this is a Bush Babes and Babies event, for our moms and their littlies. The cost of having your photos taken with Ronnie will be donated to SAWF Rhino Fund. We will also visit a cheetah farm and do some great game drives on a private game farm in Bela-Bela area, with dinner at a theatre restaurant in the bushveld.

Rap Jumping
Rap Jumping

Much like abseiling, but 10 times the adrenaline rush, since you run down a 20 storey building facing down. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but those who faced their fears is scared of nothing no more!

Special Forces Combat Weekend
Special Forces Combat Weekend

Real Special Forces Officers taught the Babes how to shoot with various guns, track rhino, camouflage, jump of a dam wall and abseil….army style!! Weird as it may seem, this has been one of our most popular trips and we’ve already had to repeat it twice!

Kosi Bay Beach Bash

Lots of 4x4 sand driving and dune bashing, sundowner booze cruise, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach and indulging in sea, sun and seafood!

Kubu Island Rendezvous
Kubu Island Rendezvous

The best of Botswana that is babely possibe: Babes got up close and personal to the magical, ancient baobabs, camped real bush style on Kubu Island, did some 4x4 driving that exceeded their wildest expectations, they visited to Khama Rhino Sanctuary and enjoyed late evenings around crackling fire in the great emptiness that is Kubu Island. A photographer’s dream getaway.
