Join Eckhard (and Jennifer) for a bush getaway, where we will explore the Fauna & Flora of Tara Rokpa Centre and the surrounding environment. We will take the opportunity to stargaze under the pristine Bushveld night skies and to watch the close encounter between Mercury and Jupiter.

Bring your walking shoes and binoculars, field guides and note books, and swimming costumes to enjoy some time in the bush. Suitable for all levels of fitness.
