Filming and Events Notice

We appreciate the concerns and measures implemented by our events and filming partners. With the extension of Covid-19 national shutdown, CapeNature has put some necessary measures into place, to minimise risk around filming and event activities on its nature reserves.

As a precautionary measure, CapeNature will not be taking nor processing any filming nor event applications, effective immediately. Thus none of these activities are permitted on CapeNature reserves until further notice.

The situation is being monitored closely and members of the public, Filming Scouts/Producers and event organisers will be informed accordingly of any new developments.

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.

For further enquiries please contact Mr Trevor Luthango in our Marketing department on 087 087 9262 or email
