About Ihlati

Ihlati Bush Camp is a joint venture with the SmartBrain Child Development Institute (www.smartbrainsa.co.za). Situated on a 50-hectare farm just outside of Cape Town, off the N7 towards Malmesbury. The camp grounds and courses offered here are the labour of love of a group of people passionate about empowering the youth of Cape Town, educating them and encouraging personal development so that our youth can feel a sense of self-confidence, purpose and are equipped with the life skills they need to navigate the often treacherous waters of adolescence and the added social problems of gangsterism, poverty and drugs.

Built on the dreams of these dedicated teams, Ihlati truly is a place where dreams come true, where kids have the freedom to discover who they want to be and where the seeds of a physically, mentally and emotionally healthy new generation are planted and nurtured in each visitor. In addition to the camping facilities, Ihlati offers a function venue for parties, weddings and informal braais or team-building sessions.

Accommodation, catering and courses run by trained professionals are available throughout the year, however, should you wish to run your own programme, or do a self-catering function or camp, we will adjust our quotation to meet your specific needs.
