The “Valley by Moonlight” experience, postponed from 30 November 2012 due to cloudy and rainy weather conditions, will now take place next Friday, 25 January 2013.

Camdeboo National Park and its staff look forward to hosting you at the Valley of Desolation for this rare opportunity at one of the wonders of nature.  Bring along some good company and come and enjoy the magnificent sunset over the valley, and then witness the moon rise in all its glory.  Thereafter, enjoy a bring-and-braai at Ribboksberg Picnic area, where all you have to bring along is your meat and refreshments – as Park staff will ensure that the fire’s perfect for the braai.  

The event starts at 19:00, ends at 22:00 and tickets cost R35 per person.  Tickets bought for the November date are still valid, and there are still some more available from the Park’s office on the N9 towards Middelburg.
