In July 2021, CapeNature announced a partnership with Forge, the 100% Made in Mzansi mobile hiking maps app. The digital maps include super accurate trails and important points of interest, like camping sites, waterfalls and mountain peaks among others, as well as information on opening hours, facilities, contact details and more.
With all the information in one place, the Forge app is your go-to tool for planning and navigating your next hike. The app currently hosts 12 CapeNature reserves across four Western Cape regions. So once you’ve planned and booked your adventure, whether it's at the breath-taking Groot Winterhoek, the majestic Sneeuberg or laid back West Coast, here’s how to get the most out of your Forge app.

Maybe packing got a bit stressful the night before and now you’ve turned up at the start of your adventure destination, but realise you forgot to download the Forge app onto your device?
At selected CapeNature Welcome Centres you’ll find a small upright poster where you can scan a QR code which will take you directly to the relevant app store. You can also access Forge directly from CapeNature’s Visitor App.
