Rondevlei Nature Reserve

Rondevlei Nature Reserve’s protected area holds within it a wetland and lake, and chartered boat tours can be organised for those who wish to see the diverse wildlife from the water. There are a number of threatened fynbos species in the reserve as well as bird-watching hides, so pack your binoculars and spend some time spotting ibis, herons, gannets, egrets and all the other feathered friends.


  • The only nature reserve in Cape Town with hippos
  • Home to over 230 bird species, a number of reptiles and mammals
  • Tour by boat on the river and lake, bird watch from the hides, or walk along the scenic paths
