Adventure through education and learning

Adventure at its heart is the challenge we pose ourselves in times of inner transformation

the People who Adventure with us

The story told by those who put themselves out into the world and take up the challenge to inform themselves about the wonders of our world carry on to shape our future. The adventurer has lead the way in discovering all that is new, in experiencing other cultures and he has lifted the veil of knowledge. The individuals who choose this path are few and far between but they are the ones who lead others into the unknown, whether it be for self discovery or the discovery of the physical world. We support each other at this difficult time and embark on a new type of adventure where we are challenged to keep each other safe.

the Teams who venture out

A person who chooses to be part of the adventure into humanity has a very special and unique place in this world. To facilitate an experience with others is to be part of a far larger story that spans history. We gather around the campfire to open our minds and hearts to those around us. We give space to those who walk this path with us and create experiences that sit with us for our lifetimes, to be passed on to others when the time comes and to protect and nurture the flame that ignites a new adventure. We now carry on with this very tradition while being mindful of the challenge we face in implementing new structures and Protocols that keep those on the journey safe.

the Facilitators of Adventure

The hard work and passion that has gone into creating guidelines and Protocols over the years has been the defining factor in keeping those around us safe. To take the lead and create spaces where others may carry out their own adventure is a part of the development process that underpins education and learning. You are the guardians of the story and this can only come from a space where your own experiences have lead to a place where others may match or exceed the adventure you have been part of. We build on each other and we look around us in wonder at the support structures that have been fastened in place over the years. In this difficult time we see a new form of work going into Adventure and thank those who are guarding others with the new Protocols and measures needed.

Science & Medicine

The formation of Protocols are based on scientific evidence from various fields and the implementation is to go through public testing and sustainability studies. Protocols are about saving lives and protecting the public and private sectors.

Compassion & Ethics

In considering the implementation and use of Protocols we put People First as lives are at stake. Ethical considerations are to form a baseline in terms of the sharing of information and the use of data to form the needed Protocol measures.

Technology & Monitoring

The use of Technology fundamentally changes how effectively we are able to implement Protocols and then monitor their effectiveness. Monitoring data and the ever changing direction of the challenges we face in the world determines the speed of our response.

The Covid Protocols series are a collaboration between Hello Adventures and Khotso from Southern Xplorer to offer YOU a behind-the-scenes look at what tourism businesses in South Africa are doing to get travel-ready during the Covid19 pandemic.

Protocol guidelines

important things to know

The protocols being implemented worldwide and relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic are guidelines, measures and procedures formed by medical bodies, councils, and scientific research and study. It is advised that you consult directly with your Government or representative Council or Association before implementing any COVID-19 protocols. There are many legal implications if you implement measures that are not uniformly accepted worldwide. Currently the main reference point for all COVID-19 protocols is the World Health Organization -

Please seek legal assistance and oversight when developing or implementing any protocol measures.
This site and all related sites DO NOT in any way or form develop protocols and all protocols listed on the site are guidelines only, by the relevant representative organisation. This site is a Public Benefit page with the aim of studying the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism in South Africa.
