On the last Saturday of March (March 28, 2020), millions of people around the globe will participate in Earth Hour, one of the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment.

Residents of Cape Town will have the chance to add their voice to the global drive for positive environmental change with an outdoor adventure to be held at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, with the support of Virgin Active.

At this year’s Earth Hour Adventure, Capetonians will take part in an after-dark, family-friendly race across the beautiful botanical gardens using torches and headlamps to navigate hidden checkpoints along a 5km course.

The ‘dash’ will be followed by a bring-your-own picnic on the lawns. Live entertainment (MC: Good Hope FM Radio Presenter, Dan Corder. Artist: SA’s Latest Pop/R&B Star Kerwin) will keep the good vibes going and everyone is asked to avoid plastic waste. Coffee lovers are encouraged not to leave home without their reusable coffee mugs!

The event is a fundraiser for WWF-SA and proceeds go towards supporting their conservation efforts.


Adults – R180

Kids – R100 (kids under 6 enter for free).
