Bookings For booking and more information please visit the Friends of Kloofendal Website. Please note that this event is limited to 25 participants.


Literally overnight, something so small, yet so large, changed my very aspect of our lives, and instilled fear and anxiety in person on the planet. Businesses closed, people lost their jobs, people died, and the future we all had hoped for, seemed an impossible dream. Anxiety creates negative feelings towards the present and the future, which in turn, create a downward spiral of hopelessness, depression and inaction. However, anxiety can also inspire and intensify our focus on activities that will make the world a better place. 

Eco-Anxiety takes a look at the causes of anxiety, how to reframe anxiety as a driving force for solving the challenges of our time, and building a prosperous new future.

Please wear sensible shoes (no high-heels or flip-flops) and bring a small water bottle. Participants must be reasonably mobile and able.  This walk is suitable for children, however, all children must be accompanied by an adult. 

You are welcome to spend the rest of the day at Kloofendal. Entrance to the reserve is free, however, there is a nominal free to attend the walk which keeps Friends of Kloofendal operating.

Copies of Jonathan's books will be available for purchase at this event:
