ATMOSPHERE & SUBSTANCE ABUSE
This is a conscious gathering catering to all ages, shapes, colours, creeds and forms
This is a gathering of playful, peaceful celebration with the intention of bringing in the New Year with full-power health and happiness.
Under no circumstances will we tolerate any hard drugs, alcohol abuse, or dangerous, disrespectful and unruly behaviour in this space.
We expect every individual to self-regulate and take responsibility for their personal vibe AND that of their friends.
We will have a nurse on site, but hope she will be dealing with nothing more than encounters with friendly bushes which appear out of nowhere. It happens, mos.
NOTE: If you have any intention of getting trashed and consequently behaving in a way which may be harmful or inconsiderate towards other people, our animals, environment and space, then please respectfully bow out now.
The Directors and Staff of Wild Spirit Lodge reserve the right at all times to immediately remove anyone from our property who we feel is negatively affecting the atmosphere or safety of our other guests.
We have done it before, and we will do it again.
Please honour and respect these ground rules; they are here for the benefit, safety and enjoyment of all.
CASH IS QUEEN
Please come prepared!
Essential for the Gate, Food, Bar, Craft & Private Wellness Sessions.

The farm stall up the road takes cards and there are ATM’S at the two petrol stations nearby in the Crags.
BOTANICAL BUDDHA BAR
Conscious Party Zone
Only kiff vibes, smiles and cash will be accepted at this bar!

Thereafter, the Buddha bar in the Campsite will open from 4pm to just before midnight except on New Year's Eve, when it will stay open until 1am.

We will have three or four different food vendors on site.
These stalls will cater to herbivores, carnivores, and everything in between.
All food is lovingly prepared and made to order.
