Have you ever wanted to learn about identifying trees and shrubs? Join Eckhard Druschke for a relaxing getaway in the beautiful Groot Marico Bushveld for a weekend of walks & talks on tree and shrub identification.

Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.

 Kahlil Gibran

Bring your walking shoes and binoculars, field guides, water bottles and notebook to enjoy some time in the bush. Suitable for all levels of fitness.

In the evenings, there will be star gazing, and Eckhard will talk about our amazing Southern African sky, identifying various constellations, planets, and stars,  and offering insight into our vast and magnificent universe.
