South African Reforestation Trust is a non profit organization based in South Africa. We focus on conservation, rehabilitation and restoration of indigenous forests.
The reforestation sites of the South African Reforestation Trust are all located in the Western Cape of South Africa. The properties in which the reforestation sites are located are all aimed at nature conservation and rehabilitation. Reforestation takes place in previously disturbed areas which are in dire need of active restoration.
Farm 215, part of the Walkerbay Fynbos Conservancy, is a protected area under Stewardship of Cape Nature and the first reforestation site of Trees for Tourism. The 800 hectares of this reserve is covered with different fynbos vegetation types, riparian areas and some indigenous afromontane forest remnants.
The reforestation site is an area along a stream which was previously used for agriculture and subsequently infested with alien invasive vegetation. The invasive vegetation has been removed and reforestation pilots were done in 2007-2010. On the basis of the success of these pilots, 10’000 trees were planted out in 2011, followed each year by allocations of a few thousand trees.
Far removed from the daily grind of life, farm 215 is a private, intimate and secluded retreat where you can enjoy spacious accommodation, tranquility, an overpowering sense of space and the unique nature of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Farm 215 is the base station of the African Horse Company, organising outrides and multi-day horsetrails and provides access to an extensive network of hiking and mountain-bike trails in the Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy.
