Intaka Island now a sought-after function venue

Since the opening of its Eco-Centre three years ago, Intaka Island, the 16ha wetlands nature reserve in the heart of Century City which is rich in plant and bird life, has rapidly become a sought-after function  venue.
The thatched roof, multi-functional Eco-Centre, which was funded by corporate donations, offers a variety of venues that can be hired out for suitable functions and in so doing help cover the overheads of its core environmental educational work and events.
The main activity venue within the Eco-Centre can accommodate up to 120 people standing, or up to  80 seated theatre-cinema style, 45 seated classroom style or 24 seated boardroom style.
There is also a smaller venue – the Energy classroom – which is suitable for a group of up to 40 people  which can be used as a breakaway venue or for small standalone functions. 
The Eco-Centre also has an outside classroom able to accommodate around 40 people seated cinema style making it an ideal additional breakaway venue.
Then there is the Educational Lapa which is a brisk  5 minute walk from the Eco-Centre and  situated at the foot of Bird Mountain boasting beautiful views of Intaka and Century City. Able to accommodate 60 people comfortably, this is a firm favourite for among other things, Children’s parties and relaxed corporate or organisational get-togethers.
Due to its sensitive natural setting and taking into consideration that its primary objective is to provide an educational facility, events and functions on Intaka are limited to certain categories and understandably no high-noise, late night events can be permitted so as not to disturb the birds or animal life. 
Permitted events include Environmental education, training and workshops, presentation and meetings for environmental clubs and groups, intellectual presentations, talks, launches and expos, corporate and community social responsibility events and small scale events such as cheese and wine, corporate breakfasts and sunset functions for the Century City corporate community.
