Edenglen Primary would like to thank you for our very enjoyable Grade 7 farewell. We enjoyed every minute of it. Your venue and facilities are beautiful and clean and all the facilitators were so friendly and accommodating. Thank you for the delicious food and our surprise game drive. Please  thank the facilitators for all the innovative activities that they used to keep the children occupied. Many of our city children have never before been exposed to some of the things we did during our visit. I am sure they will remember this experience for a long time to come. We will most definitely be visiting Kwalata in the future again. Regards Charmain Botha.

We visited Kwalata Adventure Camp with Stellenbosch High School during the World Choir Games. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a friendly atmosphere and assisted with getting settled. The stay during the week was great and Peter and his team were exceptional in terms of Food, Accommodation and keeping the kids happy during a pretty hectic games schedule. They really went the extra mile. The rooms were good, the food was great, the campfires exceptional. My only negative would be the slightly hard(and small) beds. Otherwise, I would highly recommend the Kwalata Adventure Camp.

February, 2022. Apologies for the delay in camp feedback. We arrived tired, somewhat dusty but endlessly happy on Friday, and I'm certain not just the teachers but also the learners spent most of the weekend speaking about the great adventures that were had. I'd very much appreciate it if the below feedback could also be sent on to Trevor, Peter and the entire Kwalata team. In short, the camp was excellent and exceeded l expectations by far. Why? The activities were age-appropriate and made sense, they were presented with a goal in mind, the learners got to learn, to try things out, to reflect, and to evaluate themselves as individuals and as a team after all the activities. Everything made sense in the greater scheme of the week's program. There was cohesiveness and a logical, learner-centred progression.
The facilitators were phenomenal; insightful, knowledgeable, friendly and patient, yet firm when needed, open, keen to include everyone, and not shy to address any shortfalls or issues. Working with them, observing, and participating in some activities was a great privilege for us as teachers too.
The facilities, from dorms and ablution blocks, to the lapa, meeting areas, grounds and obstacles are exceptionally well-maintained. The food - well, I have no words. I think the happy dances I regularly performed showed how much I personally enjoyed the outstanding cuisine, and the learner feedback is the same - yummy, filling, generous, tasty, flavorful and delicious were but some words used to describe the meals. We well and truly enjoyed our week at Kwalata to the fullest and cannot wait to come back. Wishing you all well - stay happy, healthy and safe. Katharina & the grade 6 colleagues

October, 2021. Ons Graad 6 leerders van 2021 het die afgelope naweek 15-17 Oktober die geleentheid gehad om Veldskool by Kwalata Adventure Camps, Dinokeng by te woon. Dit was 'n naweek van baie uitdagings, kopkrap en takties dink, maar ook vir baie lekker speel en baljaar. Dankie aan Kwalata wat die Veldskool vir ons leerders onvergeetlik gemaak het.

More Trevor. Baie dankie vir die geleentheid om by Kwalata te kon kamp. Ons het dit ontsettend baie geniet! Die Kwalata-personeel was wonderlik en werk so mooi met die kinders. Die kos was voortreflik. Weereens baie dankie! Groete. Simone en die Gr 11-dogters. Simone Franze Departementshoof

Maragon Olympus het hul eerste Koorkamp einde Januarie by Kwalata gehou.  Tussendeur die harde oefeninge het ons baie pret gehad, geswem en lekker gekuier. Die wildrit was met groot entoesiasme meegemaak en ons was gelukkig om kameelperde, rooibokke, zebras en hul kleintjies en blouwildebeeste te sien. Selfs die klein jakkalsie tussen die bome is nie misgekyk nie. Ongelukkig kon ons net die leeu se spore sien.Elke ete was ‘n fees en die kinders het heerlik aan die lekker kos gesmul. Kwalata is die beste! Elke fassiliteerder is altyd vriendelik, betrokke en behulpsaam. Die leerders voel veilig en word begelei en mooi versorg.  Daar word gereeld met ons as personeel geskakel rakende die program van die dag. Ons personeel is elke dag getrakteer met heerlike kos en ons het spesiaal gevoel. Die fassiliteite is altyd netjies en skoon. Ná hierdie koorkamp weet elke koorlid dat dit baie harde oefening en deursettingsvermoë kos, maar dat ‘n mens ook lekker pret kan hê! Ons voel bevoorreg om te kon kamp by so ‘n lieflike kampterrein!! DANKIE KWALATA!!!! Maragon Olympus Koorkamp 2020 Christina Enslin

We had an amazing three day, 2-night stay at Kwalata Adventure camp. The Grade 4’s were kept busy with activities from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm. Their Counsellors were really amazing and the children responded to them in a very positive way. The children really enjoyed it. The food was also very good and the accommodation though basic was very clean. In the teacher’s section, the rooms had 4 bunk beds with linen and blankets. We ate what the children ate but in our dining area. I would really recommend it, we the teachers did not have to do anything other than turn the lights out at 10:00 pm.

February, 2022. Good morning Trevor, I hope this email finds you well. I would just like to thank you, Peter and the team for the exceptional service we received again. The learners cannot stop talking about their various camp experiences and it is all down to your team. Due to difficult socio-economic situations our learners do not get much exposure to the world and this camp means so very much to each new generation we bring to your adventure camp. So, thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you in 2023. Stephanie Bence Belvedere School Therapist
