Hiring our Facilities
Chrysalis Academy is situated in the picturesque, tranquil location of Tokai Forest in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, at the foot of the Table Mountain range. This serene setting is perfect for adventure breakaways and getting in touch with your environment, or just to fill your lungs with some fresh mountain air.
The camp was destroyed in the Tokai fires of 2015. The Chrysalis Academy is now fundraising to reconstruct the camp.
There are two sports fields. The lower sports field boasts a climbing wall and a zip-line (for the not-so-fainthearted). The upper sports field is close to the bush camp, with the mountain as a backdrop, and is perfect for rugby, soccer, athletics etc. (own equipment must be provided). The upper field can also be utilized for events i.e. fundraising events, film shoots, teambuilding etc.
Each hostel has 10 dormitories which can accommodate a total of 100 people; two separate communal ablutions and a recreational hall. There are also self-catering faciltiies. View our Gallery.
