Silvermine Nature Reserve forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. Silvermine takes its name from the Silvermine River, which starts in the reserve and runs to Clovelly. Just 20 minutes away from the city centre, the reserve is an important conservation area for indigenous fynbos plants. Apart from walking and hiking, it’s also a popular spot for bird-watching, picnicking, and mountain biking, Silvermine Nature Reserve also has a number of sandstone cave systems and rock climbing routes to Muizenberg. One of the easier walks circles around a large reservoir. A boardwalk accessible to wheelchairs and prams is in place for much of this walk. There are also several picnic and braai areas in the park, including some along this picturesque walk. The reserve is one of the locations for the Hoerikwaggo Trail camps. Contact to book the camp for one night or as part of the longer trail. The entry point to the reserve is at the top of Ou Kaapse Weg and a small fee is charged. (R15 for adults and R5 for children from 1 to 11, babies free). The reserve is open daily from 07h00 to 19h00, and plenty of parking is available.
