Founded in 1995, we are passionate about helping children from a young age to develop a love for nature. We do this through telling stories using puppets, doing fun activities in the environment and having a lot of fun!

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you have sown.
Robert Louis Stephenson

Cape for Kids has a heart for working in townships and we love to give young township children the opportunity to visit beautiful spots in Cape Town when we know they would otherwise not have a chance to leave their environment. We are humbled by the passion and tenacity the township teachers have for their schools.

Over 50 000 children from across the Cape have experienced a Cape for kids outing in the last 23 years.

Our Founder

Ali Corbett grew up on a farm in Zimbabwe with nature as the backdrop. Mud sliding in the veldt, climbing rock hills to find bushman paintings hiding in the crevasses, watching hoopoes tucking into juicy worms on the front lawn are just some of the beautiful memories which left an indelible love of nature in her spirit.
