Trees For Travel

Earthstompers Adventure Tours have officially joined the Treevolution by partnering with Greenpop Tree Planting.
Greenpop is a social business that believes greening and sustainable living can be fun, popular and accessible to all. They believe in inspiring a greener, more conscious, inclusive movement and the do this through tree planting projects, green events, education, social media, voluntourism and activating people to start DOING.
Greenpop's mission is to green under-greened areas and combat deforestation in Southern Africa. They plant trees on behalf of companies, groups, travelers and individuals wanting to invest in a greener future and improve the lives of communities in areas affected by lack of resources. Since Greenpop was founded in September 2010, they have planted more than 17 000 trees in over 200 beneficiary schools, creches, orphanages, old-age homes, community centers and deforested areas.
Planting trees in reforestation projects creates important carbon sinks to sequester carbon dioxide. By adding an optional Green Donation to your bill, you can easily green your trip! Your sponsored tree(s) will be planted by Greenpop on your behalf and you will receive a certificate with the GPS co-ordinates.

Trans Baviaans 2012 - Mountain Biking - Team Earthstompers

Earthstompers had the opportunity to sponsor Cycling Shirts and T-Shirts to a team of 3 Mountain Bikers, Team Earthstompers: Aldo Bruwer, Piere Rossouw and Nichol Jordaan for the 2012 Trans Baviaans Mountain Bike Race.

The Trans Baviaans is one of the toughest single stage Mountain Bike races in the world, Mountain Bikers have to cover 230 km in 24 hours to qualify for a medal in a single stage through some tough terrain through an unmarked route, a big part is during the night. This is a true test of team work and endurance. Well done to Team Earthstompers for finishing in 14 hours.

Are you thinking of doing some mountain biking on the numerous exciting trials whilst in South Africa? Contact Earthstompers and we can arrange Customised Mountain Bike Tours through the Western and Eastern Cape area. We are blessed to have some of the most spectacular mountain bike routes through the Garden Route. We can take you over mountains, through indigenous forest, along rivers and lakes, some breathtaking ocean views and even through Game Parks watch this youtube clip: Mountain biking in Africa.
