Who We Are
Outdoor education – Sport – Accommodation – Conferences & functions
Being located on a privately owned farm that comprises over 2000 hectares, it is also the perfect destination for our Gap Year, Outdoor educational and sport programmes. Our programmes are appropriately designed to fit different groups and focus on the environment, adventure, fun, leadership and sport. We cater for all grades, schools, teams and other groups.
In recognition of their efforts we engage in numerous joint ventures and community initiatives.
Here are some of them:
In co-operation with the Academy for Environmental Leadership and with the sponsorship of ACWA Power they have started a small, but intensive hydroponic production system under shade netting at Grootdrink School, as well as an adjacent open field garden, to produce selected vegetables for the use in their school nutrition programme and to sell the extra produce for an income for the school. Duin in die Weg is a key contributor to the Grootdrink project. We are co-operating closely with ACWA Power, the Grootdrink community and the Grootdrink Intermediate School in this regard. A number of our employees, headed by our Operational Manager, Frans Marx, have been and are still intimately involved with the establishment of the project to date.
