How did it all start?
With a very inspired young man named Oliver Esplin. After returning from a working holiday to England in 1997, Oliver was driven to share his passion and vision about experiencing adventures in an authentic and sustainable manner with others. As a police man at that stage he did not have any funds to start up an adventure company or money to go on adventures, so he made use of his experience from his youth to take people on adventures that got the harts pumping with adrenalin. In 2005 with enough money saved up to buy one small raft for river rafting and using his bakkie Clarens Xtreme was born. Clarens Xtreme started to operate in summer and closed down in winters were Oliver went to work at the Afri-Ski resort in Lesotho. With his passion for people Oliver soon realized the demand for more adventurous activities for people and what started off as a one-man show has grown to become one of the best adventure companies in the Eastern Free State.
Today Clarens Xtreme offers a lot of different group experiences. The choices are vast – from a variety of adventure sports, game drives, cultural tours to family vacations and unique custom build expeditions to places you have never even imagined, there is an adventure for everyone. If you share a lust of life and have an insatiable curiosity about truly experiencing the country we live in, then join us and embark on a quest for the extraordinary.
Our passion for people, adventure and culture drives us to uphold our motto “Carpe Diem” (seize the day).
