Reflecting: Academic retreat and thought centre

Providing a contemplative environment conducive to reflection and creativity.

Set in a tranquil savanna environment, the Wits Rural Campus, with its the comfortable award-wining facilities, is the ideal venue for:

  • Individual or group retreats
  • Workshops
  • Conferences

The thoughtfully designed amenities create conducive spaces for both quiet reflection and social interaction with other academics.

The natural environment provides ample opportunity for relaxing, exercising, and observing nature in the African bush. Interaction with local nearby communities can be arranged.

WiRKH supports the use of the Wits Rural Campus as an academic retreat and thought centre by:

• Running an academic residency programme

• Promoting the Wits Rural Campus as a venue for sabbatical and writing retreats, scientific meetings, conferences, and science-to-action workshops. To book go to Reservations

• Organising events such as talks, seminars, exhibitions, and informal social events
