What you'll do

Throughout history, all kinds of creative people have walked for inspiration and as a form of meditation. Want to tell your story but don't know how to start? Feeling creatively blocked, looking for change or need some inspiration? Walking in nature combined with writing offers various physical and psychological benefits and it has been scientifically proven to help boost creativity and lower stress levels. Let's reconnect to your creativity with Cape Town as your muse. Join me on a leisurely creative walk through the botanical gardens of Kirstenbosch. You'll be given fun, thought-provoking prompts to get unstuck and inspired. We will stop along the way to write, share and explore using the five senses. At the end, you'll have a creative practice that you can easily apply in your daily life as a source of inspiration, meditation or comfort. This is an experience for self reflection and personal growth. Not sure what a creative walk is? Just ask and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Where you'll be

We'll experience the forest with just our sense of sound and touch on the sensory Braille Trail, share stories and write by the pond and enjoy a kaleidoscope of colour through the fynbos flowers. Experience art outdoors as we study the stone sculptures. Connect to the therapeutic power of nature and get a bird's-eye view of the gardens by walking along the popular and world-famous 'Boomslang' (tree snake in Afrikaans) tree canopy.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 12 and up can attend. Guests must be fit enough to walk through Kirstenbosch. Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes—no heels.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Please arrange your own transportation and be on time. Cape Town is known for having four seasons in one day, so bring sunscreen or a hat to protect your skin and a warm jacket in case of wind.
