6 Januarie vanaf 6.30, vandag stap ons in en langs die spruit. Dis die mooiste deel van die reservaat en daar is soveel dinge om te sien en te doen. Ons sal verkies as ouers saam met jong kinders stap, en deel wees van die pret. Ou skoene en klere, en n paar sterk vuilgoedsakke, as moontlik en drink en eetgoed asb, in n rugsak.

We would like to invite you to come and enjoy our first Walks and Talks for 2016 presented here.
Our very first event will be a tree walk with Izak van der Merwe and Owen Brett on the 6th February from 09:00 and we will meet in the parking area. We did this walk in November and we can promise you that it will be excellent because this tree people know so many very interesting stories about every tree … even back in history. We do ask for a R40.00 donation, for the reserve. You are welcome to join them afterwards at Rademeyers. Remember your hat, camera, walking shoes and something to eat and drink.
On the 20th February we will once again have Prof Adam Bumby walking and talking to us about the rocks that we find in this reserve. It is the same age as the rocks at the Cradle of Humankind and this walk will last for at least four hours. Young children also always enjoy this walk. Remember hats, water and something to eat. It is a very popular walk so do not miss out. Once again remember the R40.00 for the upkeep of the reserve. The walk will start at 6.30.
Spider walk with Astri Leroy on the 10th April from 8.30. Young children are welcome to join us because it is presented in a way that will be enjoyed by everybody. Remember your cameras and water and snacks. They do ask a fee of R50/adult and R10/under 11.
We will post more events for the year as we confirm dates!
Please remember that the membership to become a Friend of Moreletakloof have been lowered to R150/family of two adults and two children under 18 (you will also receive free entrance, for two visits for the family to Rietvlei, Groenkloof and Wonderboompoort etc).
You will receive a Newsletter about everything happening in this special reserve and important issues to be handled like our aging palisade. We would also like to thank Nature Conservation for looking after our reserves.
Moreletakloof has changed its colour to green, with some of the most beautiful old trees towering over younger trees along the Rademeyer spruit.
We have three excting events taking place in November, as well as the very important AGM on the 19th of November from 18:00. We really need as many people there that love the reserve – it is in a beautiful venue and you are welcome to join us for a glass of wine and a conversation on the reserve.
Please click below for more information on the AGM and planned events, as well as just below that our November newsletter.
You are welcome to contact us on email@example.com if you have any questions or require more information.
Annual Meeting of the Friends of Moreletakloof will be held on the 19th of November 2015 from 18:00 at Rademeyers Restaurant (main building), inside Moreletakloof Nature Reserve, Helios Street.
We would like to invite all the people that enjoy the Moreletakloof Reserve and regularly take lovely walks to join us on this special evening. We need people that care to help us with the running of the Friends group, as well as the planning to keep and safe guard this lovely reserve.
It is getting more and more important that the Community gets involved; else these green areas will become more threatened and unsafe and will be developed. Less people have the time or the finances to help us as Friends.
Please come with your ideas of how we can try and keep the reserve safe and well looked after. Nature Conservation will join us and be there to answer any questions you might have. There will be a cash bar available.
