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:

The City of Cape Town  announced on 17 March 2020 that certain facilities, including Nature Reserves, will no longer be in use due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus. 

The city has noted the key containment and mitigation measures that are being implemented across the world and in South Africa in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19. We have taken note of best practice from other affected countries and the success they have found in social distancing and improved hygiene practices.
