AfriForum Youth hosts three leadership and history hikes every year. The purpose of these hikes is to expose members and non-members to our history through experiential training. It offers adventurous people an opportunity to get involved in AfriForum Youth and to understand why it is so important to make a difference.
The Western Front Endurance’s theme is the Anglo-Boer War that was fought from 1899 to 1902. We specifically tour areas where battles were fought under the commands of Generals De la Rey, De Wet and Cronjé. It differs from the Rebels’ Track Endurance because we walk from battlefield to battlefield and position to position to study these in depth.
Come and learn how our generals had to come up with plans.
