Club outing – Treehaven 27th Nov


Photo outing Sunday 27 November 2011

Arrangements have   been made for us to visit TREEHAVEN, a water fowl
sanctuary near   Vereeniging. Treehaven boasts 16 species of SA ducks, 116
varieties of exotic   ducks, geese etc, 4 species of Flamingo and 3 SA Crane
types on 30 acres   on the banks of the Klip River.
A highlight of Treehaven is that one can get close to the birds so you don’t
need big lenses to   get good pics.
We will be meeting   at the gates at 05:15 for 05:30. Note: the gates will close at
05:30 so be   there on time to avoid disappointment. Entrance R50 p.p.
The gates open at   09:00 for the general public so you could invite your non-
photographer family   to join you later (cost R30 p.p.). There is a playground and
animal farm for the   kids.
The coffee shop   opens at 09:00 for snacks and breakfast while you can buy
braai packs (3 x   meats/boerevors, salads and pap) to cook on the provided
braais all under   big shady trees.
Directions: Take   the R59 towards Vereeniging (past Alberton and Meyerton)
leaving it at the   REDAN off-ramp. Turn left at the end of the off-ramp ignoring
the 1st road on   your left proceed towards the factories in the distance. Turn
left 950 meters   from the off-ramp over the railway lines (be careful, it is a busy
2 way line). Once   over the railway turn left on the tar road. Travel another 950
meters to the   TREEHAVEN gates.
Treehaven is about   61 kms from Edenvale and at S 26deg 38’05.0″
and E027deg 57’39.1″
