Walking the Daisies is an annual two day, environmental hike to South Africa’s premier eco-friendly music festival, Rocking the Daisies.
Rocking the Daises are looking for 200 like-minded walkers for a 53km facilitated hike with exciting educational and environmental activities.
The walk is fully catered for and your luggage will be transported to the festival for you. Tented accommodation is provided along the way with lots of added benefits.
Walking the Daisies started in 2008 when botanist Greg Nicolson returned from a 28 day, 700km hike from Namibia to Cape Town to research endangered wildflower species along the N7 road reserve. He then decided to trek back up the coast with a friend to Rocking the Daisies.
Rocking the Daisies developed the initiative into a group experience and Walking the Daisies grew to 20 walkers in 2009, 50 in 2010, 100 in 2011 and 2012 and 200 in 2013. It is now a widely acclaimed event that supplements the festival’s aims to create and promote positive environmental action, make friends and get a vibe going before you even arrive at the festival gates.
This year, Walking the Daisies, will take place on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd October, arriving at Cloof Estate on the Thursday afternoon to give Walkers time to relax and enjoy all the festival has to offer.
We have once again requested permission to walk through Koeberg Reserve instead of having to be transported around so HOLD THUMBS!
