If you love the Baviaanskloof and understand the threat alien plant species poses to the environment, you can volunteer to help the Friends Of Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area eradicate these invaders from the Smitskraal region over the weekend of 9 to 11 March.
To join in the event, bring some camping gear, safety equipment (gloves et al) and a panga. You’ll have to cover your own travel expenses too.
The group of exterminators will travel through on Friday, March 9, and return on Sunday, March 11.
Don’t expect a 5 star hotel. Accommodation is basic camping only. Travelling there takes three hours from Jeffreys Bay. You must reach Cumbria’s gate before 5pm. They won’t allow you in after five.
