THE AIM
Boot Camp at Rondevlei Guest Farm in Wilderness Southern Cape strives to provide an outdoor venue and a facility in a natural and safe farm environment for children and adults to participate in sport, educational and recreational activities in a meaningful way.
The aim of the venture is to facilitate sport and recreational academies where groups of individuals attend supervised day or stay-over camps to practice sports and participate in educational and recreational activities. We also provide tourist accommodation during certain periods of the year.

THE MOTIVATION
We are of the opinion that a need exists for a facility in a safe and natural environment where groups of individuals, especially children, can practice sports and participate in educational programmes and recreational activities. This includes all ball sports, adventure programmes, martial arts, aerobics and Tai Chi, field guiding and life skills courses etc. The farm is ideally located in the centre of the Garden Route in close proximity to the beach, Swartvlei Lagoon, Wilderness National Park and in a safe and quiet farm environment.

THE VENUE
Rondevlei Farm is located in the Wolwe River Valley directly opposite Wilderness National Park and 400m from the northern shores of Swartvlei Lagoon in the centre of the Wilderness Lakes region of the Garden Route. The 24 ha farm is 9km from Swartvlei Beach, 14km from Sedgefield, 17km from Wilderness and 38km from George. It has a mixture of kikuyu paddocks and indigenous Knysna Forest vegetation.
