Welcome to SA Outdoor Academy
There is nothing that boosts self-confidence, focus and concentration, support and trust, pre-planning skills and fitness more than Rock Climbing! The South African Outdoor Academy offers training courses for adults wanting to learn about rock climbing and bouldering, as well as professional training qualification courses for rock climbers wanting to broaden their guiding knowledge.
