Learn how to photograph wildlife, or set your own bike gears

Many people like to use their weekends and time-off to become better skilled at their interests, which is something Active Escapes understands all too well. We have developed a range of workshop options that can be tailored to suit groups, and can be combined with some proper relaxation time to round off a weekend away.

We arrange mountain bike maintenance workshops for enthusiasts, which offers the perfect opportunity to test out Midlands riding with additional skills training. However, if you're short on time our 1 day intensive hands-on workshop will be more than adequate to get you up to speed with beginner bike mechanics.

We also plan to host photographic workshops in beautiful locations, like in the Eastern Cape Highlands: a stunning and often overlooked part of South Africa. Other specialised workshops we have run are Wilderness First Aid courses, Art and Cookery focussed. Whatever your group's passion, we can source an expert tutor and provide the inspired location to make it happen. enquire with Active Escapes
