Our Vision

This is a developing self-confidence through
self-discovery in an outdoor environment.
Hobbiton promotes environmental and social awareness, cross-cultural appreciation and the development of life and leadership skills through our facilities and in the natural setting of our centre. This includes generating enough funding to provide the ‘Hobbiton experience’ to less fortunate children. 
Extraordinary experiences
Extraordinary Our centre specialises in creating extraordinary experiences for individuals, teams, schools, churches and organisations.
Choose from an array of tailor-made activities to achieve your goals.
Great facilities
Hobbiton’s facilities can accommodate small and large groups, schools and organisations.
Accommodating groups is our speciality and our comfortable dormitories provide space for up to 150 guests.

We accommodate conferences, provide catering and run leadership workshops. Our halls and meeting rooms can be equipped to meet your needs.
A history of making a difference
Hobbiton was founded during the late 1940s to enable war orphans to experience positive play and learning in a natural and stimulating environment.
This means that we have been making a difference in the lives of young people for over 75 years! We have stayed true to this mission and continue to run camps every year for children from less privileged backgrounds.

The Dream Team

Our dream team is headed up by Tonya Burton who has been with Hobbiton for the last 20 years and has worked her way up to Chief Operating Officer. She is assisted by Nell Serfontein who is responsible for administration and bookings.

We would not be able to offer our quality experiences without our remarkable camp instructors, Tobela Masingili and Xolani Nxuzula

John Madondile and Lifa Klaas are our senior grounds staff and make sure that our facilities are in tip-top shape.

Phindie Matshikaza, Caroline Njokwana and Zoliswa Copiso ensure that your accommodation is neat and that your tummies are filled with wholesome, tasty food.
