For the last few years we have celebrated the arrival of spring with a church family outing to the Rietvlei Nature Reserve near Pretoria (Nelmapius off-ramp on the R21) and this year is no different! On Saturday, 14 September you are invited to join us for a Spring Safari! We have the use of the Lapa, a very comfortable area with tables and benches and a roaring bonfire which produces the coals on which we braai our lunch.
Up until the 11 August there is a special Early Bird price of R50 per adult, with kids under 12 attending for FREE! After the 11 August the price will go up to R60 per adult and R30 for children. The very reasonable entry fee allows us access to the nature reserve where you can see wonderful bird and animal life, including Rhino, which are always a thrill! You need to bring all your own food and drink as well as crockery and cutlery. It is a good idea to bring blankets or cushions to make your section of the Lapa more comfortable! It goes without saying that sunscreen, hats AND jackets are a good idea in order to deal with spring weather! Please feel free to invite friends or family along with you – it is a very casual affair, all about experiencing the great outdoors with a great bunch of people! There is space for ball games or you may like to bring a board game or puzzle for when you are not exploring the nature reserve by car. Roads through the reserve are good and there are bird hides along the edge of the dam and who knows – maybe you will spot that illusive hippo!
You can browse our Flickr photos of previous events – but why not join us in real life this year! Please contact the church office (Tuesdays to Fridays, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.) on 011 828 7126 for more details and to book!
