We ask for a donation for attendance at field and certain other events and suggest R100 for adults and R20 for children 11 years and younger, with the option of donating R200 PER FAMILY for an annual subscription in July each year.

CANCELLED Mpumalanga Night and Day Spider Walks
26 March 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 27 March 2022 @ 11:30 am
Join us for two spider walks at Sterkspruit Nature Reserve – a night walk on 26 March, and a day walk on 27 March.
We will be starting the weekend off with a night walk on Saturday 26 March. For this walk if you care to join you will need to bring a torch and decent walking shoes as we won’t be able to see what we are stepping on too well. We will be looking for spiders and scorpions which are mostly active at night so we have high hopes for some absolutely epic finds.
After the night walk you can choose to stay over on the reserve for the spider walk the next morning. However, the accommodation is very rustic and limited space is available. For details on the accommodation please be sure to message Jarrod 067 833 2191 personally, else your spot will not be booked.
Then, for the day walk on Sunday 27 March we will start the morning off at around 8:30.
This is a beautiful natural reserve with plenty scenic areas to search for all types of spiders and other critters.
We ask a donation for the event being hosted that goes toward setting up these events and hopefully some exciting items in the future. Recommended amounts are R50/adults and R10 for kids under 12.
The Sterkspruit Nature Reserve is situated just outside of Lydenburg in Mpumalanga. The reserve’s escarpment incorporates highveld grassland, forested kloofs, wooded stream banks, and quartzite cliffs. The natural habitat is perfect for fly fishing, bird watching, and hiking.
The reserve is home to a variety of mammals, including porcupine, aardwolf and the Cape clawless otter. There are more than 150 bird species, including the ground woodpecker, bush blackcap and blackwinged plover. The hiking trails offer stunning views of the majestic hills surrounding the reserve, and the Sterkspruit River is filled with rainbow trout for the enthusiastic fisher.
To book, either for the night or day walks – or both – contact Jarrod on whatsapp 067 833 2191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember when booking your spot, provide your cell phone number for last minute communication and let us know how many people will attend.
Keep your eyes on your e-mail and our Facebook page as other events may be organised, sometimes at short notice. We will attempt to give you fair warning. And remember that Norman Larsen is at the Cape Union Mart Adventure Centre, Canal walk in Cape Town every Saturday 11h00–12h00 to demonstrate and talk about SPIDERS!
