"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all"
- Aristotle


Quest Africa was born out of a growing awareness of the gap between the conventional education curriculum and the next stage in a young adult's life. Most schools emphasise academic skills, leaving students less than optimally equipped in terms of practical skills, life skills and character building. Quest Africa aims to bridge this gap. Quest - Africa comprises two scenically diverse campuses, one in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe and the other in Kaba Conservancy in the Eastern Cape.

The Quest Africa programme was created to offer school leavers a well-rounded alternative to immediately pursuing a career or university education and is focused on character development, which has its roots in Aristotle's open air academy in Greece some 2400 years ago. Through its approach and focus on experiential learning, the Quest programme is designed to help young men and women build confidence and become hands-on entrepreneurs.

A no-holds-barred approach to education, Quest Africa is a life-changing experience that challenges students both mentally and physically. At Quest Africa, our vision is to take young adults on a journey of exploration and self discovery; to give them the opportunity to explore and express themselves as individuals and to discover and pursue their passions in life.
