Each year various African countries host amazing adventure festivals. From film festivals to all-out-try-every-outdoor-activity-festivals.
Tribal Tourist has created this platform for outdoor lovers. Our mission is to get more people enjoying the outdoors in Africa. We love the fact that some of our festivals are about disconnecting from technology, unplugging and connecting with nature.
If you have a trail-running event, an adventure film festival, or an event on the water, Tribal Tourist wants to hear from you. List your yoga event or learn how to forage for food in the bush.
As long as your event is about getting people outdoors, list it here, it’s FREE. Email us your logo, photos & facts about your event and let’s share this with the world.

The Bat Run | South Africa
REGISTER NOW | LIMITED TICKETS
Table Mountain National Park
The Batrun is held annually on a late February or early March night around full moon for those that enjoy the magic of the mountain at night with a group of like-minded folks. Non-competitive, party-mood, good time to be had by all.
The event is the only night run/walk within Table Mountain National Park. The challenge of this event is to ascend the three summits(Devil’s Peak, Maclear’s Beacon and Lion’s Head) in an atmosphere that exists on the mountain at night, above the city.
Batrun historically sells out within 24 hours as it only has space for 130 runners.
Entry is based on a first come first serve policy.
The LegendRunner (AKA StrongmanRun) will be the 4th consecutive race in South Africa. It is one of the the biggest mass start obstacle races in the world and one of the highlights on the race calendar due to the spectacular location in Paarl with it’s absolute beauty!
