Donations of binoculars and/or spotting scopes

Both old and new would be very well utilised here at the Karkloof Conservation Centre. We often have visitors who do not own their own pair of binoculars, but would like to try spot some cranes and other birds during their visit. We would also like to get our local farm schools twitching as part of an annual project.


Sponsor a hole at our Annual Golf Day

Help make our Annual Golf Day a success by sponsoring a hole for R 2,000.00 and companies are welcome to put up branding on the day.


Participate in the Three Cranes Challenge


Break in those running shoes with this tough, but rewarding trail running event which takes you through some of the most breathtaking areas in the Karkloof.

Sponsor corporate prizes for our various functions

During the year, we have many events that require prizes to be given out. Please let us know if your company is able to support us through corporate prize sponsorship.

Contribute sightings from the Karkloof to our monthly sightings newsletter

Our monthly sightings newsletter is well read and helps us highlight the biodiversity in the Karkloof area. Stories with or without supporting photographs will be well received.


Report sightings of cranes

Upon spotting cranes when you next visit the Karkloof, please take note of the following details:

  • What type/s of crane/s do you see?
  • How many can you count?
  • Are they nesting, dancing or foraging?
  • Where are they (gps coordinates or detailed description)?
  • Do you see any colour rings (eg: Right leg - small blue over small green and Left leg - large white)?
  • Are you able to take a photograph?
  • Is it injured (if so, please contact us immediately)?
