Explore nature for free during Access Week 2016!

by CapeNature

Become a tourist in your own back yard and visit a CapeNature reserve for free! From 19 – 25 September, CapeNature provides free access to day visitors to experience the freedom of nature at any one of our nature reserves.


Yes, that’s right! CapeNature is giving you FREE access to our nature reserves from 19 to 25 September. That means the standard conservation fee that day visitors pay will be waived for those days, at any of the CapeNature reserves across the Western Cape! See the full list of reserves here: capenature.co.za/reserves/ (click on link to open in a new tab)

So there’s no excuse – get out there, explore the finest wide open spaces the province has to offer and do it all for free!

The following Terms & Conditions apply:

  • The conservation fee will be free at the entrance to any CapeNature reserve that is open to the public
  • Free day access will only apply at the reserve gate, no free access fee will apply when booking through the call centre and it excludes accommodation bookings
  • No prior bookings
  • Free access fee pertains to general access (conservation fee) and to all day activities (hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, horse riding). The waiver does NOT apply to concessions (including canopy tours, bouldering etc) or multi-day hikes
  • Access to Protected Areas during the CapeNature Access Week will be conducted during regular reserve hours and applies to entries at CapeNature reserve gates only

    Brilliant initiative, if we have more of those weeks then we as grandparents can take our grandchildren on tours to show them the beauty of our walks.

    Thank you.
