Our Story

Kinetic Events was born out of love of Adventure racing and the outdoors. Married for 18 years Heidi and Stephan shares the same passion for adventure and travelling thus creating memories together. Our biggest reward in life is to take people with us on these adventures and to inspire them in the process.

Expedition Africa is a multi day adventure race. Teams of four complete approximately 500 km in 4 to 7 days, on foot , Mountain bike and kayaking. Every year Expedition Africa visits a different area in Southern Africa to showcase it to the world. Expedition Africa forms part of the Adventure Racing World Series and the Winner gets a free entry into the World Championships.

Expedition Africa started 2011 in Hermanus - Western Cape. Since then we visited Port Alfred - Sunshine Coast, Drakensberg, Wild Coast, Swaziland, Garden Route, Kouga/Baviaans and we just returned from our 2018 event in the beautiful Namaqua West Coast.

Our 9th edition of Expedition Africa will be hosted on the island of Rodrigues in 2019. Dates has been confirmed 30 August - 8 September 2019. Teams will have an amazing island adventure and will get spoilt by the local hospitality.
