School Visits

Edu – Centre: Interactive sessions with school groups.

Environmental education is made as exciting as it is mind blowing. Bring your school, home school groups, students, or friends for an environmental educational outing. The eco-lesson is presented by a qualified teacher. . We cover the life cycle of butterflies in a unique way (of course) and bring exotic animals into the classroom for groups to see up close, experience and touch. We do not do lessons on environmental issues that children can do nothing about, instead we show them the beauty, variety and splendour of a creation worth preserving.

Our message is simple: Appreciate, don’t keep.

How it works:

  1. Download and fill in the form on this page.
  2. If the date and time is available, we send you a confirmation of your booking.
  3. The group goes to the Edu-Centre on arrival.
  4. The group takes a self-guided tour of the gardens.
  5. 5. Please bring Pencils for the treasure hunt-style worksheet
