EWT Conservation Campus, Midrand

The EWT operates from all over the country but we have finally found a place to call our own, forever. The EWT Conservation Campus in Midrand provides space for conservation collaboration, capacity building, exciting conservation activities and events, and a serene break from the bustle of the city around it.

The EWT Conservation Campus provides an enchanting place to celebrate the connection between humans and nature, nourish the aspirations of those who share a vision for a sustainable future, and foster positive interactions with the environment.  Here, the conservation community can showcase their work and thrive in a sustainable and secure home.

The Campus is set on six hectares of serene, beautiful land, featuring a functional wetland that attracts numerous indigenous wildlife species to take sanctuary from the noise and dangers of the city.

We are opening our new home to you and are excited to welcome you to the EWT family. By using the Conservation Campus, your employees will be playing their part in Protecting Forever, Together.

While more corporates and individuals are choosing to work from home, there is still a need for teams to come together to brainstorm and collaborate in a safe, secure, and inspirational environment, while maintaining social distancing (SD) protocols. Close to all main transport routes, but with a quiet sense of place, the Campus is the ideal meeting place for brainstorming and team building, while adhering to SD protocols, both in and outdoors.

Our Campus facilities include two boardrooms, smaller meeting rooms and breakaway rooms, outside meeting areas, secretarial services, a boma area with braai facilities, catering facilities, a games room, large open spaces for physical activities and sports, and a swimming pool to cool off in at the end of the day. For those interested in conservation, various talks, displays, and demonstrations can be arranged, and you are also welcome to explore the extensive property unguided and enjoy the fresh air and bird song. Nothing stimulates employees and delegates quite like a brainstorming breakaway located within a serene environment offering delicious healthy meals and comfortable facilities within SD guidelines
