Based in beautiful Cape Town on the Southern tip of Africa,

Venture Forth International was founded in 1994 as a specialised mountain guide service and an accredited mountaineering school.


Using our experience gained in the mountains of the world, we have expanded our adventure portfolio to include expert services in fields such as outdoor adventure eductaion and corporate team building.


We pride ourselves on being a dynamic and professional company with the flexibility to serve our clients’ adventure, travel and training requirements with dedication and enthusiasm. Whether you want to take a half day hike up Table Mountain, start out rock climbing, paddle awesome waters or go on a high altitude expedition, we would like to meet you and make it a reality.
