Hobbiton started as an Outdoor Education Centre in Hogsback but has since developed into three centers. The original one in Hogsback, one on the Fairewood game reserve just outside Grahamstown and one on the coast at Pine Lodge just outside Port Elizabeth. We offer adventure camps to schools, churches, corporate groups and sponsored camps for disadvantaged children.Find out more


Hobbiton Outdoor Education Centres offer a wide range of outdoor activities as part of the adventure experience. Challenge yourself physically and mentally in a beautiful outdoor environment and enjoy the camaraderie of camp.


Here at Hobbiton we try to think of everything, from our fully equipped self-catering kitchens (We also offer catering!), dormitories and private rooms for facilitators, a conference room, break-away rooms and of course our outdoor adventure facilities.
Planning a gap year? Why not volunteer in South Africa? Hobbiton offers the opportunity to people within the ages of 18-30 to become Volunteer Instructors for three months or longer. This entails working with children and being trained on all of Hobbiton’s facilities at all of Hobbiton’s centres.Find out more

Hobbiton makes a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children from the Eastern Cape.

Help us by donating anything from meals, blankets to a camp for a single child or an entire camp for 150 kids.
