Transformation in Nature

 Creating opportunities for transformational experiences for individuals, groups and communities.

Who are we?

Entabeni was established in 1993 as an environmental education centre in the Giant's Castle area of the Drakensberg Mountains, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Since those humble beginnings we have become a leading provider of adventurous journeys, hikes & treks, life-skills & leadership programmes, local & international expeditions. Our programmes focus on personal and group development through meaningful experiences in natural and wild spaces.

Entabeni is managed by Chrysalis Project South Africa; a registered not-for-profit (NPO number 117-851).
