Environmental Education

Mountain Zebra National Park provides the perfect environment for exposing learners to natural and cultural heritage resources through various environmental education programmes. These include, but are not limited to:

  • climate change
  • pollution
  • plant identification
  • ecosystem services
  • invasive alien species
  • landscape rehabilitation
  • water conservation

The objectives of the programmes are to:

  • Raise awareness about the environment.
  • Promote the use of national parks as educational resources, while allowing access especially to the previously marginalised.
  • Provide interactive programmes that will assist learners to form their own values and attitudes towards the environment.
  • Allow learners to acquire the necessary skills to solve environmental problems.
  • Increase the numbers of and broaden the range of school groups receiving a quality learning experience in the Park.
  • Enhance the experience of visitors to the Park through environmental interpretation and education and to encourage repeat visits.
  • Encourage local communities to understand, appreciate and support the conservation work of the Park.

Holiday programmes

Holiday programmes are offered during most school holidays to both day and overnight visiting children (and sometimes even the young at heart). This information will be relayed on the Park’s website, in the local media and on our social media platforms.

The Park offers free entry for up to 60 learners and two educators during the school terms for a focused environmental education programme.
