Our vision is to facilitate the development and character of young people- to give them a true sense of purpose and direction in their lives, as well as the opportunity to grow and challenge themselves in an environment that is both safe and true to life.

Located on one of the most beautiful stretches of South African coastline, the Kaba Game Farm is the home of Quest Africa’s Eastern Cape campus. At Quest you will have the adventures and develop the friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. You will gain an excitement for life and a sense of purpose, but you will also have the life skills and confidence to live life to the fullest.
a two month course with a greater emphasis on more aquatic activities for both young men and women. Students are able to become more proficient in scuba diving, spear fishing, deep-sea fishing, sea and river kayaking, sailing and marine ecology studies. As well as this, students have the opportunity to discover other terrestrial activities as well, such as rock- climbing, livestock and game managment and horse- riding.
By the end of the courses, as well as having an enormous amount of fun, the students will have been exposed to a myriad of experiences, challenges and practical techniques- as well as personal guidance and counselling- enabling them a greater perspective to choose and carve out a career of their choice, with a “can conquer” mindset.
