    How you are supporting Kloof Conservancy

    Kloof Conservancy runs numerous projects aimed at protecting the biodiversity of Kloof and enhancing the quality of life of residents through the improvement of the environment.

    Funds raised during the annual Indigenous Open Gardens Show are the prime source of funding for projects.

    Enjoying the show

    Here are some simple guidelines we hope will improve your experience on the day:

    • Wear sensible shoes – there are areas with cobblestone paving, gravel, wooden decks or slopes!
    • There are many interesting/unusual trees to see so bring along a tree book.
    • Take a pair of binoculars if you are interested in birds – gardens create habitats which are ideal for birds.
    • Plan your comfort breaks – there are limited toilet facilities at Gardens 2, 6 and 7.
    • You are going to be in the sun for much of the day – wear sunscreen and a hat – cool-drinks and refreshments will be on sale at gardens 2, and 4.
    • The gardens are “open” but the homes are not – please do respect the owners privacy and do not wander through private spaces.
    • Please do not bring any animals (NO PETS) to the gardens.
    • The gardeners are all very knowledgeable – do feel free to engage with them as they are more than willing to share their knowledge.

    Please be considerate and move on after a while so that others can enjoy the area.
