What YOU need to know before hiking or fishing
CapeNature is continuing the phased reopening of its reserves across the Western Cape following the easing of the national lockdown regulations to Alert Level 3 to allow hiking and fishing activity.
Check the full list of reserves and trails that are currently open to the public here (opens in new tab). Please take into consideration the daily limit allowed on each trail. Once capacity is reached no more hiking permits may be issued for that trail on that day. The opening of trails will be subject to weather conditions. A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) can be found here (opens in new tab).
All visitors entering at a controlled CapeNature reserve entrance gate will be subjected to a screening process and various guidelines will apply, including the mandatory completion of a 4-step check-in process.
In order to minimize contact engagement and risk, no hiking permit will be on sale at reserve gates until further notice. All visitors will be encouraged to pre-purchase their hiking permit online, by visiting www.capenature.co.za or contacting the CapeNature Contact Centre on 087 087 8250 (074 936 2139 or 062 318 4987 on weekends). Pre-purchased hiking permit sales will close at 10h00, for any purchases made for that particular day. In order to manage capacity and record keeping Wild Card holders will also need to register for a hiking permit online prior to arriving at the reserve.
