We strive to conserve the indigenous fauna and flora of the Zandvlei so that these vital natural resources can benefit all who live in the area and the surrounds.




Zandvlei Trust has a vision to educate local adults and youngsters alike. We want to impart knowledge, skills and a passion for conservation so that the surrounding community can play a more active role in protecting the biodiversity of the area.




Zandvlei Trust holds regular informative talks and presentations by professionals and experts. These sessions are open to the public and cover topics of interest relating to conservation.
