Outdoor Educators are operating at Cumberland Nature Reserve, only 15km east of Pietermaritzburg. This Nature Reserve is an environmental treasure trove as it is home to an abundance of wildlife, variety of plant species and indigenous forest. The reserve borders on the Umgeni - river and the Rietspruit that runs through the property, cuts through the African thornveld to form two beautiful waterfalls. With high cliffs, a wide diversity in nature and some beautiful scenery, it is a magnificent area to visit, indeed.
The Outdoor Educators’ management would like to work together with those responsible for booking the program to ensure that the program is tailor made to suit their specific requirements.
Some of the educational programs that we can provide are:
General Outdoor Education programs (to enhance personal, social, and life skills; with full reviewing of activities)
