We live 15 minutes drive from the Reserve. As Birdwatchers, Fynbos and Wildflower lovers it is the best place to be! Our children did their first hiking here....... now their children walk the same paths! Ideal place to have a picnic or your little one's birthday party.
Helderberg Nature Reserve is very well looked after. It has a great picnic area and also nice hiking trials. There is a coffee shop for young and old (for those without a picnic basket). For a normal any-day outing in good weather, this is the place. PS: My four-year old son and I enjoy the trial around the dam.
We did a lot of sightseeing and a fair bit of walking during our trip to Cape Town however the Helderberg Nature Reserve had to be my favourite place that we visited! The walking trails are absolutely beautiful and so peaceful with some amazing views. My husband and I aren't exactly hikers but we really enjoyed some of the walks... 更多
I was a bit disappointed when we visited this site last week. Looks a bit run down and not looked after well. Maybe I just expected too much, will go back to try the hiking trails.
Fantastic walks among the fynbos with little paths winding up the mountain and with little streams running through it. Beautiful and safe place for a casual walk or a good hike.
