We will meet at the lawn in front of the entrance building at 18:00 and set off together to the floodplain to learn more about amphibians.

The outing is free for members, but there will be a charge of R50.00 for non-members (excluding entrance fee).

Bring along light weight fold-up chair, a torch or headlamp as well as refreshments should you wish.  Please wear sturdy shoes or even gumboots and gaiters.  It is advisable to also bring along a light jacket or raincoat and umbrella.

In the event of a late afternoon thundershower, we will wait for it to pass before starting.
