Q. Why must I wear a wrist band
A. This system has been implemented to protect both our members and paying day visitors. It allows for easy identification
of those who are abusing the honesty system which used to be in place.
Q. Where do I pay my entrance when I come to walk during the week?
A. Walkhaven is open all week - on arrival please proceed to the deck area where you will find our Honesty Box and pay
your entrance there.
Q. If I don't bring a dog along with me why do I still need to pay entrance?
A. We do not charge for dogs - only humans! Walkhaven is privately owned property. Your entrance is used to maintain
our facilities and keep Walkhaven pleasant for all our visitors.
Q. I am a member. Can I bring visitors along on my membership?
A. No - your visitors will still need to pay their entrance and wear their wrist bands as proof of payment.
Q. Can I bring my own refreshments/food/picnic basket etc?
A. Yes! There are many lovely picnic spots and braai areas around the park that you are welcome to make use of. Please
remember though that the tables in the tea-garden area and on the deck are strictly reserved for customers using the bar
and kitchen facilities.
Q. Can you tell me more about the membership option?
A. Membership to Walkhaven is available at R540/adult per annum - kids come free with their parents and R270 for pensioners.
The membership option was designed for those who visit Walkhaven on a regular basis (two or more times per month) -
we have members who are at Walkhaven three days of the week! Members do not pay entrance fees and have the
benefit of a 10% discount on kennelling fees and hire charges for Lapamanzi. All members are issued with a permanent
silicone band which can be kept in the car. You can download our membership application form here.
Q. Is it O.K. to bring an aggressive dog to Walkhaven if I keep him on a lead?
A. No. Walkhaven prides itself on being an off-lead facility. This means that if your dog is not well socialised enough to be
off-lead he shouldn't be at Walkhaven. Due to the fact that all dogs are off-lead they tend to run up to new arrivals to say
hello - as you can imagine this causes absolute havoc with everyone involved.
Q. I have a new puppy that is 6 weeks old - can I bring him to Walkhaven to start his socialisation?
A. We recommend that you do not bring your pup along to Walkhaven until such time that they have had their second
booster shots from your veterinary clinic. Puppies are particularly susceptible to certain viruses as their immune systems are
not yet fully developed.
Q. How do I protect my dog from ticks and fleas?
Q. Do I need to clean-up after my dogs?
A. Yes. If you have forgotten to bring your own poo-bags along, please feel free to help yourself to the bags in the bar
and on the deck area.
