This group is for all the outdoor and nature lovers in and around our beautiful Cape Town. For those who love hiking, walking, sunset picnics, trail running, swimming, kloofing, climbing, or any other outdoor adventure.
For those who like to hike our mountains, rivers and beaches in the Cape Town and surrounding area, but prefer to hike with a group. There are regular hikes, which are sometimes planned in advance, and others are spontaneous. We would like this group to be one where anyone can plan a hike and everyone is welcome to join the hikes.

You agree not to hold the Organizer, Assistant Organizers, or any other members responsible for any injuries, mishaps, or any other situation that may happen at a planned event.

Let the moon shine on your Taalmonument picnic.
Experience the cosmic show in the breathtaking scenery.
You don’t need to cry for the moon to make a perfect evening out possible. Join the Afrikaans language monument’s friendly staff on a beautiful evening on the picturesque Paarl Mountain to celebrate a Full Moon Picnic on Saturday, 9 November 2019, in aid of a good cause.
The picnics are very popular with local residents and overseas visitors, who especially enjoy the sunsets and incredible night scenes. Visitors can join us between 17:00 and 22:00. A free guided tour that explains among other things the symbolism of the monument, which is an exceptional sculpture, is offered at 18:30. Visitors are encouraged to explore, and there are outdoor games and playgrounds for children.
Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets or pre-order one (R300 for two people, or R400 with a basket included) at the Volksmond Coffee Shop on[masked]. Volksmond will be open for coffee, light refreshments and pizza. Please dress warmly and bring a torch.
The evenings are held in aid of ‘Let’s Read!’, the Language Museum’s reading project for children, and visitors are encouraged to donate a new or second-hand children’s book.
Tickets are R40 per adult, R10 for SA students and R5 for children (free under six years). They are available from Computicket or at the gate, and no booking is required. Annual permits are available at the Language monument at R120 for individuals or R220 per family, which includes access to Full Moon Picnics.
