The Event

Torchlight Adventure & picnic on the lawns of Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens.


Get into the spirit of Earth Hour with family or friends by participating in an orienteering-style adventure dash in one of South Africa’s most beautiful national botanical gardens.


Following on two successive years of successful Earth Hour ‘dashes’ in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town, WWF will for the first time be offering the same experience in the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden in Roodepoort, Johannesburg.


The events, which are particularly popular with families, will kick off at 6pm on 30 March 2019, after which participants will navigate their way by headlamps to hidden check points dotted across a 5km course in the gardens.


After all the action, everyone will be encouraged to spread a picnic blanket on the lawns and enjoy entertainment under the stars while marking the actual Earth Hour while basking in the knowledge they’ve done their bit for nature – and had some fun while doing so.


The MCs for the evening will be media personality ProVerb.
