About Tygerberg Nature Reserve

A short drive from the centre of Cape Town is the 300ha Tygerberg Nature Reserve where bontebok once again roam freely after a 100 year absence.

The name “Tygerberg” is a legacy of early settlers, who mistakenly identified endemic leopards as “tijghers”.

The reserve protects the critically endangered renosterveld vegetation.

Activities include hiking trails, picnic areas, views of Cape Town, a variety of animals and bird watching.

The reserve’s Kristo Pienaar Environmental Education Centre features a resource centre, library and herbarium where geography, biodiversity and ecology lessons are offered. Booking is essential.

Open every day except Christmas Day.

Directions to Tygerberg Nature Reserve
