Our Story

Our obsession with motorcycles and machines in motion has made us leaders in experiential driver development. We’re elevated by our TETA accreditation and we’re on form as the only academy in South Africa with a tar range for motorcycle training, a dedicated K53 range, 4x4 adventure tracks, trails and gravel skidpan.
From our 11ha flagship facility and a 700ha neighbouring farm in the Cradle of Humankind, our tracks under the African sky equate to adrenaline therapy, far removed from city stress. We offer the opportunity for escapism, adventure and camaraderie with corporate days, individual training, formal and social events, racing teams and clubs. Our incident and accident-free track record is our assurance that we’re the best in the business. ADA hit the track running from April 2005 with the management of the Honda Adventure Academy and in 2013 it incorporated the Harley Davidson Riding Academy into its operational fold. This was a springboard for other partnerships and brand specific solutions and the catalyst to specialise in automotive events, off-road accessories and overland trips
