view from blaauwberg

The Blaauwberg Nature Reserve (BBNR), a unique area of approximately 2 000 ha comprising a rich mosaic of natural, cultural and historical elements, is located 25 km north of the centre of Cape Town, South Africa. It is regarded as a global biodiversity hotspot. It harbours a unique treasure of cultural historical artefacts and has the potential to become an open-air classroom which is easily accessible to millions of people in its proximity. It also provides a strategic visual link between Table Mountain and Robben Island and provides opportunities for a multitude of recreational activities.

Please note:

All reserves managed by the City of Cape Town, including Blaauwberg Nature Reserve, are now open as normal.  This means the Coastal Dune Trail is available for visitors and others who want to enjoy the beautiful specimens en route (see ‘Fauna and Flora’ for entry fees). 

Please wash your hands before visiting the reserves, and keep your masks on at all times. No group activities are allowed, so the picnic and braai facilities are not open.
