Voting Day 18 May 2011

Join us in the Moreleta Kloof Nature Reserve on voting day,  this coming Wednesday the 18th of May 2011 with your family and friends for a lovely walk and lots of fun in the Kloof and at Rademeyers.

The Conference centre at Rademeyers in the Kloof will be used as a voting station for the ward, so why not make use of this opportunity to get out in nature and go for a walk on the Kloof’s beautiful hiking paths? While  will enjoy a carnival atmosphere, with fun demonstrations about Nature and lots to eat and drink.

We will have live music so you can relax while you stand in the queue to vote. There will be lots of information available on how to get involved in the nature reserves in your area.

You can sit and enjoy a talk by Ella Janse van Vuuren and her husband about everything from frogs to wild flowers to trees and how to keep our earth healthy. This will also be enjoyed by the youngest kids, young at heart adults and everybody that loves nature.

We would also like to extend a special invitation to people with disabilities and the elderly to join us between 10:00 and 13:00 on the day for walks along the planned discovery and sensory trail.

Vakansie tyd!

Soek jy iets om te doen hierdie vakansie? Is die kinders verveeld?

Pak ‘n rugsak met lekker eetgoed (elke papiertjie moet terug in die sak), iets om te drink, en kom stap in die Moreletakloof.

Maak ‘n groep van vriende en familie bymekaar en kom spandeer ‘n hele paar uur saam in die Kloof. Die Kloof is nou Bosveld mooi, geklee in sy Winterskleure en jy stap op byna 8km gesnyde graspaadjies, in die mooiste Kloof langs die standhoudende Rademeyerspruit, wat jy heeltyd hoor kabbel.

Daars verskillende roetes, Suikerbos en Duiker, het bietjie opdraendes en dan die baie plat Rademeyers roete waar jy selfs met ‘n stootwaentjie kan stap.

Die mooiste tyd, vir my is natuurlik Sondagoggend, so vroeg as moontlik, dis stil, klam en baie pragtig.

Julle kan selfs vir die kinders vra om te kyk hoeveel bokke, voëls of klein diertjies hulle kan sien, daars die mooiste verskeidenheid. Hierdie uitstappie is ook die ideale tyd vir kinders om te besluit watter taak of projek hulle, vir skool hier kan kom doen. Deur die jaar, is daar pragtige sampioene, klein veldplante, ‘n verskeidenheid van grassoorte, die mooiste blommetjies en moenie vergeet van die kabouters en fëetjies wat tussen die blare speel nie.

Kom geniet die Natuur op sy beste in hierdie 90 hektaar Reservaat. Oop vanaf 6 VM to 6 NM.

Kontak ons gerus op info@moreletakloof.co.za vir meer inligting!

Stap in die Moreletakloof/Walk in the Moreleta Kloof

Kom stap saam met ons op die 28ste Maart om 06:30 VM. Ek besef dis vroeg maar die Kloof is op sy mooiste en stilste, op n Sondagoggend.

Pak vir julle n ligte ontbyt in n rugsak en kuier saam met ons langs die spruit onder die bome. Onthou die kamera,  n klein kombersie om op te sit en al die vriende en familie.

Daar is heerlike roetes om van die kies, sommige makliker as ander. Die afstande wissel , maar die langste een is 3.2km lank.  Met al die goeie rëen is die Kloof n lusthof, van die kleinste veldblomme, die mooiste sampioene, wildsbokke en groot ou bome, waaronder die feetjies baljaar.  Die spruit ontstaan net buite die Reservaat , en is n pragtige standhoudende stroom wat groot poele onder die bome maak. Jy is heeltyd bewus van die gekabel van die water, en sang van honderde voëls.

Julle kan enige dag van die week kom stap, vanaf ses in die oggend tot ses uur in die aand( waneer jy die stappie kan afsluit  met n heerlike glassie wyn by die Voerkraal).

Die motors word veilig binne die Reservaat geparkeer, by die Rademeyershek en alles is gratis.

————————————————————————-

Come for a Walk ,early on Sundaymorning the 28th of March (at 6.30).

Please pack a light breakfast, bring a blanket  and your camera, and join us  for a walk in the serene coolness of the morning, under shady trees with the sound of water and the song of birds.

You can choose different routes, or join us for a two- or three hour walk. After all the rains, you will not believe that you are walking in a Reserve in the middle of Moreletapark.

The children can enjoy nature and see Zebra, Blesbuck and Impala grazing in the grass fields.

You can come for a walk,any day of the week. The gates open at 06:00 in the morning and you can also end an afternoon walk with glass of wine, at six at the Voerkraal, and watch the sunset over the Kloof.

Park your car at the Rademeyers gate and enjoy the free walk in the most beautiful Reserve in Pretoria.

Friend’s Den

When visiting the Moreleta Kloof Nature Reserve, remember to visit the Friend’s Den! Details about upcoming events and other information about the reserve will be posted there. The Friend’s Den is close to the main gate entrance next to the security guards.

Meeting 13 August

Vriende van die Moreleta Kloof

Dit is tyd dat ons weer lekker saam kuier, en gesels oor die Kloof wat maar swart en vaal lyk op die stadium, maar die Lente is oppad.

Die natuurbewaring mense het hul hande vol gehad met die veldbrande waarvan die laaste twee gestig was, en met groot moeite onder bedwang gebring was,

Min mense besef hoeveel  Natuurbewaring en die Stadsraad bydrae tot die mooi Kloof hier in ons midde, waarvan so min mense gebruik maak.

Ons wil hulle graag bedank vir hul bydrae, maar saamhangend kan ons nie verwag dat hulle alles doen en ons doen nie eers die moeite  om ons deel  te bring deur aan te sluit by die Vriende van die Kloof, en ook om direk betrokke te wees by die onderhoud, en bemarking  van hierdie juweel.

Daar sou  n Vriende-vergadering gewees het op die 30ste Julie, maar ongelukkig pas die datum nie een van die bestuur nie. Ons het besluit op die 13 de Augustus om 17.30nm, by die Rademeyers Restuarant, en wil u graag uitnooi  om dit by te woon.

Laat asseblief weet of u die vergadering sal bywoon.

Friends of Moreleta Kloof

We need to get together, to talk about  the Kloof, which is situated right in the middle of Moreleta Park. Have you ever taken a walk in the Kloof, what an unbelievable experience?

We had two serious fires in the last few weeks, started by unknown people, in Rutgers Street.

Nature Conservation and the City Council spend a lot of money and time to keep this Reserve safe and well looked after. They spend hours in the park, to take out all the alien species and do fire-breaks, so that the animals can be safe and well fed. We need to do our part, to be a friend of the Moreleta Kloof and to help them sustain this lovely piece of nature among us.

We did plan to meet on the 30th July, but it did not suit any of the management. Would you like to join us on the 13th August at 17.30, for a meeting at  Rademeyers . Please let me know if you will attend.

Election Day 2009

On 22 April, South Africans turned up at voting stations across the country in their millions. The voting station that used to be on the corner of Helios and Rubenstein in Moreleta Park, was moved to Rademeyers this year, presenting the Friends of Moreleta Kloof with a golden opportunity to make area residents aware of the Kloof. Rademeyers Restaurant also made a family day out of it, with jumping castles, food and drinks on sale and live entertainment.

It is almost shocking to see how little people know of this beautiful reserve that is right under their noses. People drive past it on their way to work every day without even knowing noticing the zebras standing next to the road.

The FMK, together with Tshwane Nature Conservation and The Green Market put up a stand at the exit of the voting station showcasing the Kloof and sustainable living. A snake show was held to teach kids to not be afraid of snakes and to respect them and the important role they play in nature. All in all the day was a huge success with plenty of interest shown in the Kloof.
