Welcome to Ezemvelo Eco-Campus Blog
This blog is a forum to develop ideas for expanding the educational programmes at Ezemvelo Nature Reserve, in Gauteng, South Africa. The property has recently been gifted by the Oppenheimer family to the Maharishi Institute in Johannesburg.

Ezemvelo Nature Reserve Website
It consists of 4,500 hectares of game reserve, with accommodation for visitors up to about 300 including campsites. It is used frequently by schools and other groups as well as tourists. Last year horseback riding was added to the amenities offered there. This blog is primarily for those working with the Maharishi Institute to develop ideas for expanding the educational programmes at Ezemvelo. And also to share current news related to Eco Tourism, Eco Construction and Sustainable Agriculture that will be helpful for designing our educational programmes. At present our blog is unmoderated, and we welcome comments and contributions from anyone interested.
