About Hobbiton-on-Hogsback

Hobbiton-on-Hogsback is set in the Amatola mountain range and offers children and adults a valuable outdoor educational experience. Hobbiton has served the Eastern Cape community since the Second World War and is a fully ARA accredited outdoor education centre.

Hobbiton is a welfare organisation operating out of Hogsback in the Amatola Mountains looking after disadvantaged children, especially from the Eastern Cape. Kids are exposed to the beauty of the Hogsback Mountains, forests and waterfalls while participating in all that we have to offer. in order to hold these camps we charge school groups, church groups, families and corporate groups for accommodation and activities.

During the camps, the children are taught life skills such as social interaction in the form of team building, as well as personal development skills that might enable them to become leaders. As a core philosophy, all activities offered at Hobbiton must be voluntary and fun.

Hobbiton offers high and low impact courses, the first session of which can be conducted at your place of work. Activities on the property include abseiling, climbing walls, rope courses, orienteering, a compass course, group dynamics, trapeze, zip wire and various other outdoor activities.
