Blaauwberg Nature Reserve, Blaauwberg, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
Cape Town is unique due to its high concentration of local flora and fauna species. Our nature reserves protect and conserve our city’s natural areas and biodiversity heritage.
The Blaauwberg Nature Reserve was proclaimed a local and provincial nature reserve in 2007. The reserve has a spectacular view down fynbos slopes, across the city, to 7 km of rocky, sandy coastline, the ocean and beyond. Blaauwberg Hill, is one of the few viewpoints in the world from where you can see two proclaimed World Heritage Sites, namely Table Mountain and Robben Island.
The reserve also offers the Montispectus self-catering unit, which you can hire out for a pleasant weekend getaway with family and friends.
