A Natural Park Above the City

Just a ten-minute drive from Cape Town is a jewel of a park, offering an experience treasured by locals and visitors alike. Part of the Table Mountain National Park, the Silvermine Nature Reserve provides an experience of the beauty of southern Africa that you should definitely experience. As a protected conservation area, the natural fauna and flora - especially the birdlife - of the cape have been preserved. Well-marked hiking trails offer the opportunity to see what the area has to offer, as well as beautiful viewing points that overlook the city and bay. Rock climbing areas and sandstone caves also provide more strenuous opportunities. There are picnic and braai (South African style barbeque) areas.

Utrip Tips

*While safety in Cape Town is generally higher than the rest of South Africa, it still suffers from elevated crime in some areas. As a general rule, it’s recommended to not hike alone in rural areas, or walk alone in city parks around dusk. Hiking in larger groups or with licensed guides are generally a good deterrent. Use common sense and good judgement when enjoying nature, especially in remote areas and around dusk. Private security is common in public spaces such as parks.
