Earth Adventure Challenge presented by WWF South Africa

Gather your Torchlight and get ready for an Adventure and Picnic on the lawns of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens with the Earth Adventure Challenge presented by WWF South Africa.

Get into the spirit of Earth Hour with family and friends by participating in an orienteering-style adventure dash through one of South Africa’s most beautiful national botanical gardens. The event which is particularly popular with families will start at 6 pm, after which participants will navigate their way by headlamps to hidden checkpoints dotted across an approximately 5km course through the gardens.

After all the action, everyone will be encouraged to spread a picnic blanket on the lawns and enjoy entertainment under the stars while marking the actual Earth Hour.

The MC for the evening will be celebrity presenter Zoë Brown in Cape Town.
