The Cape Leopard Trust - Using research as a tool for conservation & finding solutions to human-wildlife conflict

Educational Day-Trips

The Cape Leopard Trust is offering guided environmental day trips into some of the many nature reserves throughout the greater Cape Town and Boland areas. The trips will focus on getting individuals in to the outdoors, to explore nature through informative and hands-on experiences.

About the day trips

Our qualified educator and driver will take groups out on educational and memorable trips in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Cape in our 21-seater bus, sponsored by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund.

Trip themes are varied and tailor made to suit curriculum requirements as well as any particular motives of the school or teacher. Prices for the excursions are kept to an absolute minimum and only to cover our costs.

Day trip logistics and costs

The costs for day trips are allocated according to the suburbs in which the learners live. Costs include transport (to and from collection point) and a guide for 21 people. Costs exclude nature reserve entrance/permit fees. Participants are expected to bring their own food and drinks.
