Holi One Colour Festival 2015

HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE South Africa’s First Colour Festival returns to colour Cape Town & Johannesburg!

In April 2013 tens of thousands of colour-crazy revellers covered in a kaleidoscope of green, orange, pink, yellow and blue at the original HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE Colour Festivals.

HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE will again cement its status as South Africa’s largest Colour Festival party experience!

To meet demand, HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE will be bigger and better: capacity for both events has been increased; a great line-up of international and local artists PLUS a new ‘COLOUR DAY & NEON NIGHT’ theme to add to the usual white dress.

If it doesn’t say HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE, it’s not South Africa’s biggest Colour Festival party experience!

Delvera Hi-Tec Full Moon Hike

Description: What could be better than a fabulous hike by the light of the moon. Enjoy the sunset with views of Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands from Klapmutskop while munching on a picnic. Once the sun has dipped away the moon will show its face above the Du Toitskloof mountains.

The 9.75 km hike starts from the Dirtopia Trail Centre on Delvera Farm and is a circular route through the vineyards. The trail will take you through a Yellowood forest and Renosterveld to the peaks of KIapmutskop which is part of the Simonsberg Conservancy.

NOTE: THERE WILL BE A HIKE ON THE 5TH AND ONE ON THE 6TH.

The route to the top can take up to 1hr30, so organisers recommend starting no later than 6:30pm to reach it by sunset (7:47pm).

Shuttles are available to the half way mark for kids or those who are not coping. Bring along your torch, pull on your hiking boots and make sure you have warm clothes.

Bring something warm to wear after dark and a torch, but there are a selection of Energizer torches available at the Trail Centre. Wear hiking shoes – you will be climbing a mountain.

Picnics must be booked and paid for at least two days before the event date. They are made by the Simonsberg Café, and a 5% discount will be given to bookings of 15 or more.

Pre-entries, available on www.dirtopia.co.za or by contacting Dirtopia. Arrive between 5:30pm and 6:30pm.
