Please note: Due to recent fires in the Jonkershoek area, both Assegaaibosch and Jonkershoek nature reserves have been closed indefinitely for eventing activities.

We thank you for your support and patience.

In light of COVID-19, the entity has put the necessary measures in place to minimise health and safety risks at events on its nature reserves. We also appreciate the proactive safeguards implemented by our events stakeholders.

Event applications can be submitted to Trevor Luthango at tluthango@capenature.co.za. All event officials and participants will be given access to CapeNature’s reserves as provided for in regulations 55 (2)(d),(i) i-v, (j), (l), (m) and (n), of the Disaster Management Act: Amendment of Regulations issued in terms of Section 27(2) in government gazette NO 43620 of 17 August 2020.

The number of participants including organisers must be kept to a maximum of 50 people per event. This number could increase as lockdown levels are relaxed, but such changes will be communicated formally.

A complete application request consists of:

  • Event application form
  • Event route map (detailed and clear)
  • Environmental Management Plan (EMP)
  • Proof of public liability insurance (submitted on approval of event)

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.

The CapeNature Event application form may be downloaded here.
