“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”– Mark Twain
Experiences & Adventures
At ZENfit we believe that life is about the journey and not the destination. Getting out in nature and doing something that makes you feel alive is an integral part of stress management. That is why we have packaged a couple of amazing single day experiences and weekend adventures that will get the life force and feel good hormones flowing through your body in no time.
This experience takes place at the beautiful Modderfontein Nature Reserve, situated in a 275-hectare private park in Gauteng (about 5km as the crow flies from Sandton). There is wildlife on the property, including wildebeest, zebra, springbok and blesbok with loads of birdlife, especially around the three large dams (including Fish Eagle).
We will meet in the parking area, after which we will have a meet and greet session. We will give you a brief introduction to trail running if you are a novice. Note: The trails are not too technical, so normal running/hiking shoes will be fine. After the introduction, we will take you on a 2 hour run/hike past the most scenic parts of the reserve, including some wildlife, the beautiful dams with ample bird life and some historical landmarks.
The cost is R350 per person.

This is a 4.5hr guided trip (including a lunch stop) on a lovely section of river. Our route starts with a beautiful section of channels created by vegetated islands, which lead to open pools and then into more channels. Total distance is 11km. There are a few small rapids, which are delightfully fun. Bird life is usually very satisfying. We do stop for a leisurely lunch.
The cost is R450 per person. Kayaks, paddles and lifejackets are provided. We also provide you with a drybag for your phone, car keys, warm top etc.
