Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CapeNature will not be accepting any new event applications, effective immediately. This is a precautionary measure and the situation will be monitored closely.  Members of the public will be informed as soon as we are able to resume event applications.


The Western Cape’s nature reserves offer a wide selection of the most breathtaking landscapes including mountains, dams, waterfalls, rivers and roads, making them a desirable venue for hosting events.  Please note that events are subject to approval by CapeNature.
