Time spent between school terms needn’t be time wasted. CapeNature offers jam-packed rosters of fun holiday activities for primary school children during the March, June/July, October and December school holidays.
Children will get to experience the majesty and magic of a number of different CapeNature reserves. Spend time dabbling in arts and crafts, exploring and discovering, venturing out on hikes and cultivating a love of nature. It’s heaps of fun! Holiday club activities may also be hosted at schools or libraries on request, and can also be tailor-made to your needs.
It’s not only schools that can camp out at one of our reserves – adult groups can, too! Enjoy three days and two nights of self-facilitated team-building and star-gazing at one of our eco-venues while enhancing your environmental knowledge in picturesque natural surroundings. Perfect for small groups or teams!
Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve
Vrolijkheid is a striking, rugged nature reserve in the Breede River valley, about 15km south of Robertson on the road to McGregor. The rocky landscape is starkly beautiful, dominated by patches of succulents, dwarf trees and shrubs.
Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve
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.
De Hoop Nature Reserve
De Hoop is one of the largest natural areas managed by CapeNature. This beautiful reserve is a favourite for hikers, cyclists, bird and whale watchers. The reserve, which is 34 000 hectares, is just three hours from Cape Town, in the Overberg.
Stony Point Nature Reserve
Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to a unique colony of African penguins and offers the public the chance to see these wonderful flightless birds up close, via the boardwalk through the colony, which allows the public to observe the penguins go about their daily activities in their natural habitat, without disturbing or disrupting them.
