All CapeNature school programmes are fun, interactive and aligned to the South African national education curriculum.
Find out about species conservation, fire safety, climate change and water awareness – all while having loads of interactive fun!
Here is an idea of what curriculum-aligned eco programmes we have available.
We bring the great outdoors to your school through our 30-minute or one-hour programmes, or visit one of our eco-venues or nature reserves for a longer three-hour programme.

Originally known as Melkhoutskraal, the Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve encompasses 250 hectares of indigenous forest in the Langeberg region, close to Heidelberg. It has only been a reserve since 1986 and was declared a World Heritage Site in 2004.
