Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve
The 200ha Greater Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve is a wetland, river system and estuary near Muizenberg on the False Bay coast. The reserve, which was formally proclaimed in 2006, represents the last functional estuary on the False Bay coastline. As such, it functions as a fish hatchery, nursery and habitat for many animals, especially birds. Many endangered species also find refuge at Zandvlei.
Visitors are encouraged to take the 1.5km circular walk, along which picnic tables and two bird hides have been erected. Information posters aid in identification and will help to broaden your knowledge of endemic birds and animals found here. Zandvlei offers a fun outing for children and nature lovers. There is also an environmental education centre in the reserve.
Contact Cape Town Tourism for opening hours which change from time to time, or visit the reserve’s web page. Entrance is free.

The Southern Suburbs are a tourist’s delight. The area, which stretches from the slopes of the Table Mountain range to the False Bay coast, offers natural attractions and a vibrant nightlife.
Just a little further on from Cape Town’s well-known Muizenberg beach is St James. Home to a cluster of well-known and oft-photographed bathing boxes on the beach, St James is a picturesque area that offers beachgoers respite from the westerly wind.
Only 18km from the Cape Town city centre, an arc of fine white sand gives away the secluded location of one of Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches, Llandudno.
The Macassar Dunes Project is located on the Cape Town coast adjacent to Macassar and Khayelitsha and is bounded by the Eerste River, Baden Powell Drive and False Bay.
