Reforest Fest Family Weekend 2019

Reforest Fest is Africa’s largest annual reforestation festival! Each March, they bring people together in the Platbos Forest in partnership with the Platbos Forest Reserve to plant thousands of trees, dance to live local bands, learn with sustainability leaders, camp under the stars, and be inspired by positive collective action.


Platbos is a botanically unique forest and a rare and endangered ecosystem – Indigenous forests cover less than 0.05% of the Western Cape Province. Only 0.5% of the entire land surface of South Africa is forested today. Platbos is Africa’s southernmost indigenous forest with trees estimated to be over one thousand years of age. It is a relic, remnant forest.

Arrive Friday evening, pitch your tent and relax into a chilled night of gentle tunes under the ancient indigenous forest canopy. Enjoy delicious food and start bonding with awesome new friends around the campfire. Awake early on Saturday for an action-packed day of planting 5000 trees; you will help to restore an ecosystem that is one of the rarest and most endangered in the Western Cape.

After planting thousands of trees in your teams, return to camp for a good shower and a forest party – complete with amazing live bands – to celebrate your achievement. Sunday is a day to relax your body and stimulate your mind with fun, educational activities and workshops including guided forest walks, yoga, hula hooping and guest talks on sustainability topics.
