With Paramount Aviation Academy being situated only 20 minutes from Clarens, 2 hours from a world class ski resort and numerous other fantastic attractions, we often organise excursions where there is a lot of fun to be had. Some of the highlights are:
Clarens Xtreme Adventures invites everyone to share in the majestic allure that is unique to our small village Clarens, situated in the Eastern Free State next to the beautiful Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. They specialize in adventures that will get your adrenaline pumping. They offer river rafting, abseiling, paintball, hiking, rock climbing, enduro trails, team building and a variety of day tours.
Claren Xtreme prides itself on some of the best white water rafting in South Africa, on the Ash River. This is the perfect way to get away from your busy week schedules, great for young and old age 6 to 106. Their experienced guides will lead you down grade III and IV rapids.
Clarens Xtreme knows no boundaries, if you seek more adventure on your vacation, they can arrange a wide variety of outdoor getaways to suit all – choose your adventure at Clarens Xtreme if it’s hanging off cliffs, getting wet on the Ash River, challenging paintball games or maybe something quiet like their day tour into Lesotho or an introduction to our local Cultures. Clarens Xtreme will help create wonderful memories in addition to that of getting your PPL!
The ski resort is located in the dramatic mountain nation of Lesotho which has an inimitable rural African atmosphere that is both proud and warmly welcoming.
The road to the ski resort is a quite spectacular journey in itself, going over a number of mountain passes and spending much of the journey at over 3000m. It climbs into the foothills of the Maluti Mountains, ascends the Moteng Pass at 2840m, and then drops down into the upper valley of the Malibamatso River. Here, one comes to AfriSki, an upmarket ski resort.
AfriSki has everything that you will find at any European ski resort from ski and snowboard hire to pubs, restaurants, a ski school and accommodation to name just a few.
Located only 2 hours from Paramount Aviation, AfriSki is a great winter weekend getaway for groups from the flying school or even for a trip on your own or with your family.
AfriSki has a booking office situated in Bethlehem.
Set against a backdrop of magnificent sand stone mountains, with spectacular views of the plains below, LIONSROCK offers visitors the unique opportunity to observe big cats in their
Lionsrock is a Big Cat Sanctuary in the Eastern Free State of South Africa, situated 18 km from Bethlehem and around 300 km from Johannesburg. The European animal welfare organisation "Vier Pfoten“ (Four Paws) established in the past 2 years the Sanctuary "Lionsrock“ for big cats, mainly lions, in need.
Home to several pride of lions, two leopards, a Bengal tiger and other wild cats, LIONSROCK is a shining example of the sorely needed sanctuaries in South Africa. Since the resident Big Cats were born and raised in captivity, they are being kept in family groups in spacious and enriched environments.
Being home to a diverse range of wildlife and predators makes it an ideal destination for wildlife enthusiasts, and it also has a volunteer program for people who are wanting to help make a difference.
