Friends of Blaauwberg Conservation Area (BCA)
Twenty five km up the West Coast of Cape Town lies the 2000-hectare Blaauwberg Conservation Area (BCA). This global biodiversity hotspot holds a treasure trove of natural, cultural and historical significance and it’s the goal of the Friends of BCA to conserve and protect this unique heritage site for future generations.
There are a myriad of activities available at your disposal in the BCA. Take an educational outing and learn more about historical events of the area, such as the Battle of Blaauwberg in 1806 and discover the wonderful variety of fauna and flora found nowhere else in the world.
Enjoy a day hike along the coast and through the conservation area or stay for a few nights at their accommodation in Blaauwberg Hill, where you’ll be dazzled with spectacular views of Cape Town, the ocean and the rolling hills of fynbos.
