Situated on-site at Pine Lodge Resort, Basecamp Adventures provides the outdoor enthusiast with a wide variety of mild to wild adventures. All based around the exquisite Cape Recife Nature Reserve, these outdoor escapes allow visitors to take in all the beauty of the Cape Recife Conservancy. Please note that bookings are essential for the below activities:

Guided Fatbike Beach Rides:

Explore the beauty of the Cape Recife Nature Reserve like never before on our unique FatBike Beach Tours. These specially designed fat-tyre mountain bikes allow you to savour this spectacular coastline in comfort while enjoying the rugged beach pools and wide variety of birdlife. Take in the Cape Recife lighthouse and fynbos dunes as you enjoy this novel cycle. Tours cater for all fitness and skill levels and are led by informative guides. Helmets and bottled water are provided and tours include a beer/softdrink around the pool afterwards.

Zipline & High-Ropes Experience:

Conquer your fear of heights with our Zipline and High Ropes Experience. Take in the views from the top of the towers before gliding above the coastal fynbos. For the brave, an 8m high ropes course awaits where nerves will be tested. If time allows, take a bash at the climbing wall and the middle ropes course before setting your feet safely back on solid ground. All activities are supervised by experienced instructors and the package includes a bottle of water and a  beer or softdrink around the pool afterwards.

Donkey Cart Rides to the Cape Recife Lighthouse:

Our unique Donkey Cart, led by locally rescued donkeys is the best way to take in the sights and sounds of the Cape Recife Nature Reserve. Savour the smell of the ocean and the sounds of the birds as you are gently towed down to the Lighthouse. Enjoy a short walk around the tidal pools before travelling back. The tour includes a bottle of water for the trip down and a beer/softdrink around the pool afterwards.

Guided Nature Walks through the Cape Recife Nature Reserve:

Feeling energetic? Love birding? Then a Guided Walk of the Roseate Tern trail is just for you. This 9km trail leads past a birdhide where a short stop might reveal some of the 60 species of birds that inhabit the Cape Recife Nature Reserve. Savour the views from the top of the old fort before heading down onto the beach to enjoy the unique coastal landscape and tidal pools. There is an option to include a tour of the Lighthouse or SANCCOB (to see the rehabilitation and feeding of the penguins). Tours are led by informative guides and include a bottle of water for the walk as well as a beer/softdrink around the pool afterwards.

Multi-purpose Astro Turf:

Get your game on with the newly installed, multi-purpose astro at Pine Lodge. Enjoy a wide variety of sports including 5-a-side soccer, cricket and volleyball.
