Reforest Fest 2023

Reforest Fest is an annual restoration celebration that brings people together to plant thousands of trees while enjoying a celebration like no other.

It’s a festival for everyone and whether you celebrate Easter or not, there is much to be grateful for over this long weekend. Where creativity meets participation, join in the diverse array of entertainment with interactive art & theatre for the whole family – all whilst having a blast getting active for the environment. Help restore degraded land; attend workshops, talks & classes. Celebrate under the stars with local live music & DJ’s and delight in the wholesome food village.

The stunning surrounds of Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat welcome explorers to its milkwood forests and fynbos trails, in addition to beautiful on-site accommodation. New this year is our exciting Tented Village, featuring luxury-fitted bell tents and pre-erected Kartents – fully-equipped 2-person cardboard tents, to suit all budgets and preferences.

The 2023 event is being held at Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat, which is located only 2.5 hours from Cape Town, nearby Gansbaai and Stanford.
