THE GUIDES While Sean is our main guide, we are actively helping and mentoring talented guides to become specialists in their own field with HBK Ecotours. Every guide has his / her own personality and style, while sharing a deep love of nature and concern for our environment.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH As part of our community outreach and upliftment program, we donate R5,00 from every ticket sold to the Helderberg Eco Centre. As part of an enhancement program we help educate the youth in careers in outdoor and environmental industries. We run a mentor program, where Sean spends time with children from disadvantaged and underprivileged backgrounds, giving them an insight of their responsibility to the planet. They can learn, enjoy and experience the natural wonders around them. Our passion is to teach the value of owning and looking after what you have, to pass on to future generations. The mentor program emphasizes the minimized carbon foot print, leading to a healthy, fun filled lifestyle. We LOVE mountain biking and constantly explore, often offering special weekend outrides in areas not open to the public.
