Those who receive our newsletter (you can subscribe here if you would like to) will have heard about our Big Waste Wake-Up champion, Lou-May Immelman. Lou-May embarked on a 275km pilgrimage to raise awareness for our Big Waste Wake-Up programme.

The Indlela uBuntu pilgrimage is a unique journey: small in scale, large in reality. Walkers are immersed in the magnificence of the environment, the moment, and the silence of the pilgrim trail. Allowing every sense to become one with nature, with themselves, and with the landscape. No stress, no pressure, and choosing dirt roads, farm tracks, and mountain trails. The highlight is catching sight of the Cockscomb Mountains on Day 4 – brooding in the future. It takes a week to reach this gorgeous mountain and culminates in the “Crossing Over”, a true metaphor for something special that happens in the process.
On 12 May, Lou-May Immelman starts her 275km pilgrimage to raise funds and awareness for our Big Waste Wake-Up programme.
The walk starts in Grahamstown, meanders through game farms and orchards, Karoo veld, over the mighty Cockscomb range and down to the Gamtoos Valley.
