human steam - no polluting engines allowed!
Based in the beautiful wooded savanna and farmlands of the Bergville / Winterton

could wish for.
Go Green is the way to go for a one stop adventure shop. We cater for all group
sizes and interests. Perhaps you are a small family, looking for friendly
accommodation, spectacular scenery and tasty meals. Or a corporate group on a
team building exercise. Or a large school group on multi-day outdoor education

"School Group Adventures"
More and more schools are looking outdoors to compliment the education that
pupils receive in the classroom. These journeys or adventures expose kids to the
good old fashioned values of getting outside, learning about themselves and the
environment, and leadership.
Kids are immersed into the natural environment, where they are tested, both
mentally and physically. They learn the bush skills of survival, tracking,
orientation and navigation and acquire life skills like planning, leadership,
decision making and group dynamics, and they have heaps of fun!!
We cater for groups of all sizes and kids of all ages, and can supply guides,
boats, bikes, tents and all the onsite logistics.
"Wilderness Skills Courses"
The newest activities at Go Green are the popular Wilderness Skills weekends
and holiday adventures for kids. Designed to get kids outside during their
school holidays or weekends, we will take youngsters off into the bush, where,
with kids of a similar age, we will explore, learn, and have fun!
During an action packed itinerary we will teach kids the basics of selecting and
putting up camp. They will also learn how to stay safe, warm and dry, whilst
exploring the surrounds for interesting animal tracks and signs, and learn to ID
plants, animals, insects and birds.
The bushcraft skills of survival in the wild include, amoungst others, making
fire with sticks, making bird traps and collecting and purifying water. Kids
will also learn about map reading, orientation and navigation. We will also
teach them campfire cooking skills, to ensure bellies are kept full in camp!
More advanced courses will include basic First Aid and CPR as well as
