Where is this playground – Campus

The iALA campus is based in Stilbaai for a reason. This save playground offers the ideal setting for getting back to basics. This place allow the students to walk safely around, skateboard in the streets and operate within a community that is friendly as well as supportive.  We do  however travel to important destinations like the FISHRIVER Canyon, CAPE Town & Hermanus, the GARDEN Route and to other various EXPEDITION destinations.
