What’s the Entrance fee all About?

July 18th, 2012

When visitors come to Babylonstoren, whether it’s for lunch, garden tour or a spa treatment, they often express surprise at the entrance fee at the gate. As it is Mandela Day today, we thought you might like to know where your money goes.

You’ll see that on the ticket you get at the gate, it states that the money collected from this entrance fee all goes to the Babylonstoren Trust.

The Babylonstoren Trust raises funds for community projects, like the crèche where our farm workers’ children are cared for while their parents are working.  The Trust also helps local school children with soccer and netball kit, and with transport to sports days.

Your entrance fee is an important contribution to the upliftment of our community here at Babylonstoren. Baie dankie!


  1. […] wondered what happens to the R10.00 you pay upon entering Babylonstoren? You can read all about it here, and we also thought we’d share one of our exciting projects we’ve used those funds for […]

    To whom this may concern, I have run my Montessori school since April 1994. Teaching practical independence, conflict resolution and literacy and numeracy to young children is my passion. There is a small possibility that I may be available from the 10th to the 20th of August 2018 as my visa application for the UK where I was planning to spend that week is taking longer than expected to arrive. I am thus looking for a rural pre-school where I could work with children needing specialist help and teach adults the Montessori approach to literacy and numeracy – for one week. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Jenny Mason
