Event Report: Lekwena Full Moon Charity Walk 10 Feb 2017

On 10 February 350 guests gathered on Lekwena Wildlife Estate for the first Lekwena Full Moon Charity Walk.

The family friendly nature of the event, the full moon and the magnificent setting in nature proved to be an excellent combination.

The route of approx. 10 km had a water and snack point every km and guests (especially with younger children) could turn around anytime.

The Event

The event was organized by Lekwena Wildlife Estate, The ALS Group and Engel & Völkers Potchefstroom. Registration could be done at the brand new Lekwena restaurant building, from where guests could start walking at their own leisure. Each entrant received a goody bag with an Engel & Völkers shopping bag, glow sticks and a Lekwena enamel mug. Early starters had the double privilege of witnessing the sunset on Lekwena as well as the full moon later on.
