The spider and scorpion first aid walk consists of a short lecture with visuals on medically important spiders and scorpions and their bites and stings. We will cover identification, symptoms, first aid and where to get free medical advice if you ever need it. Then we head off into the reserve to have a look at the resident Violin Spiders and scorpions. All participants receive a small booklet containing the important takeaways of this walk.
If you or anyone you know has ever been bitten by a spider or stung by a scorpion anywhere in Southern Africa, and were not sure what to do. Maybe you have had spider or scorpion in your house or garden and you are not sure if it is medically important or not? Or you just want to know the fact about our medically important spiders and scorpions, then this 2.5 hour walk is for you.

The miracle of nature is that whenever there has been a challenge, there is an organism that has found a way to conquer it. Want to live a life of zero waste? Nature has done it! What to live in the desert with no water? Nature has done it? Want to live a more meaningful and prosperous life? Nature has done it!
There are just over 8.7 million described plants and animals on Earth which are essentially individual science experiments, perpetually testing out new ways of doing things in order to find a better way. Since we all live under the same laws of nature and under the same conditions, it makes sense that we learn from the inner workings of the natural world to overcome the challenges of modern life.
The Biomimicry Walk examines those aspects of the natural world that we are all familiar with, and uncovers the extraordinary in the ordinary. The walk includes a short interactive workshop activity that examine how nature offers us solutions to overcome the biggest challenges of our time, and also, what can we learn from nature to live healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.
If you have ever wondered why flowers always clean? How termites use passive cooling to air condition their mounds. How nature deals with waste, and how venomous animals are providing cures for some of the most widespread lifestyle diseases of modern life? Then the Biomimicry Walk is for you!
