Some venues will also require an entrance fee which must be paid by each individual.

Ruimsig Butterfly Reserve

5 March 2017 @ 8:45 am - 12:00 pm


Meet at main gate corner Stallion and Equestrian Roads, Ruimsig. -28.080223, 27.854010 or 280 4’48.802” S 270 51’14.436 E. There are no toilet or other facilities, no paths, no picnic spots but the reserve is as near as possible pristine Gauteng Granite Grassland and full of all sorts of delightful invertebrates, including spiders. The grass seeds are ripe so I suggest you either don’t wear socks or if you do wear socks cover them with gaiters or be prepared to chuck them out afterwards. No entrance fee. Book with Astri on astri@spiderclub.co.za or cell 073-168-7187
