Dear Western Cape Friends Groups and Affiliates

It's time for our next exciting tribe gathering, the WESSA Western Cape Big Friends Group (BFG) Event, co-hosted by the WESSA WC Membership Team and Friends of Tygerberg Hills. After the success of our very first Big Friends Group Event held in August last year, we've decided it must be a bi-annual affair. This FREE Saturday morning session is being held in honour of the incredible environmental work being done by Friends Groups like yours, and is poised to be the perfect meet and greet for the who’s-who of the Western Cape’s conservation scene. We will also share successes and challenges, and look towards potential collaborative projects.We will start the day off with a lovely early morning walk to the top of Tygerberg Nature Valley Hill (with a surprise at the top!), followed by registration at 9 am and talks at 9:30 am, and ending off with a light lunch at 1:30 pm.

Please RSVP early (by no later than 5th February) as limited space is available:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Three Rules for Personal Security

As Lions Head and Signal Hill are in an urban park, please exercise the same common sense and security precautions that you would anywhere else in the world.

  • Do not attract unwanted attention by openly displaying cash, cameras or other valuables.
  • If you are confronted by a criminal, don't resist. Handover your goods as resistance might incite a mugger to violence.
  • Program emergency numbers in your cellphone before your hike.
