Waterfalls, forests and freedom

Hobbiton is situated in the quaint magical village of Hogsback, high up in the Amathola mountains. Here you can breathe in fresh air, go on hikes past waterfalls and in the oldest Afromontane forest in South Africa.

Hobbiton has heart

All of the above, along with generous sponsors and donors make our outreach camps possible. We have been providing children from less fortunate circumstances a chance to change their lives and experience the magic of Hobbiton, while finding their potential, since 1945. We are a registered NGO.

Help us to help others

"We have provided over 200 000 learners with outdoor learning adventures that have changed their lives.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an extraordinary effect on the Centre’s ability to generate income and to put it bluntly, the only way we have survived into 2021 is because all of our loyal staff (reduced now to only nine in number) are taking severe salary cuts. Our meagre savings are almost entirely depleted. We are busy implementing strategies to continue our work, but we are appealing to you, to assist us to bridge this difficult period in our funding.
We know that there are thousands of people in all corners of the globe who had the ‘Hobbiton Experience’ and who would be devastated should we be forced to close our doors. We hope that our appeal for financial assistance to tide us over this difficult period will not fall on deaf ears." Tonya Burton- Centre Manager
