From Cape Nature – At the end of this month on the Cape Garden Route SA’s first walking festival will take place. We are inviting all intrepid walkers and hikers to be Walk Leaders during the festival. Walk Leaders are encouraged to share a favourite walk with others by leading a walk they are familiar with and know well. Please check the festival website and select a walk to lead, or create your own walk, the more creative, interesting and exciting a walk can be the better. To include your walk in the programme we will need you to complete a Walk Form online by 18th March 2012 on the website: www.walkingfestival.co.za This festival is about celebrating the good life of the outdoors, it is about Great Walks in Good Company. The festival is accessible and open to all. While some of the walks require a registration fee (to cover permits etc) there are many that are free. The success of a festival of this nature is dependent on the community getting involved. Such festivals have immense potential in becoming tourism draw cards and can stimulate economic activity. The more people from George to Storms River who get involved in leading a walk and or in participating in walks the more the whole region benefits. The Cape Garden Route is one of the most scenic, safe and accessible walking regions around and walking is a great way to showcase this natural beauty and to share it with the world. If you know anyone who you feel would love to know about this festival, please forward this email to them. Alternatively join our Facebook page and invite your friends.
