The KykNET Buite Ekspo is Coming to ATKV Hartenbos this September, Don’t Miss Out!


Prepare to embark on an unforgettable adventure as the kykNET Buite Ekspo South Cape makes its debut at ATKV Hartenbos from 29 September to 1 October 2023. This event coincides with the first school holiday weekend, making it the perfect opportunity to experience the best of the outdoors at South Africa’s premier coastal resort.

Since its inception in 2011, the kykNET Buite Ekspo has become a beloved annual tradition in South Africa. With successful renditions held at Sondela Nature Reserve & Spa near Bela Bela in Limpopo and Moreson Farm near Malmesbury in the Western Cape, this event has garnered immense popularity. The Western Cape event, in particular, set a record with over 22,000 day visitors, establishing itself as one of South Africa’s most attended outdoor shows ever.

The primary focus of this event is to cater to outdoor fans, camping devotees, and 4×4 enthusiasts. It’s the ideal platform to explore the latest gear and equipment that can improve your outdoor adventures. Families are encouraged to join in on the fun, as the kykNET Buite Ekspo aims to be a inclusive outdoor lifestyle expo.

What sets this expo apart is the exceptional experience it offers. Exhibitors not only showcase their products but also provide visitors with real-time demonstrations of how these items can be used in their outdoor pursuits. For instance, you can expect to see André de Villiers from “4×4 met André,” a popular TV series, take the public on a thrilling ride through a custom-built 4×4 obstacle track.

While the kykNET Buite Ekspo is not a music festival, it doesn’t skimp on entertainment. Thanks to the sponsorship of Hankook Tyres, the event features a line-up of fantastic South African artists. You can look forward to performances by Neels Moir, Landman, Sone Joubert, Rooies, Blackie Swart, Desmond Wells, Johan Liebenberg, David Fourie, Rooiwyn Profeet, Dewald Dippenaar, and our weekend MC, Riaan Grobler.

If you have a passion for outdoor cooking, Jimmy’s Steak House Sauces will host a braai-potjie competition where the public can join forces with some of our performing artists to showcase their grilling skills.

Families with children will find plenty of entertainment in our play park. In addition, when it’s time to refuel, numerous food vendors and bars will be on hand, including a wine garden. Don’t forget to explore our arts and craft market, featuring carefully selected vendors.
