About the garden

This nature reserve lies in the majestic Hottentots Holland Mountains, about 90km south-east of Cape Town. The 70 000-hectare reserve stretches from Elgin in the south to beyond Villiersdorp in the north, and from the Stellenbosch Mountains in the west, eastwards to the Groenland Mountains, and is a World Heritage Site.

The rocky mountains, bright wildflowers and still natural pools make the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve perfect for challenging hikes, pulse-racing kloofing and the new Cape Canopy Tour zipline adventure.

Where would we be without this place? Not here. What a loss it would be. Best kloofing around Cape Town and has a few multi-day hikes available with drinking water streams along the way.

Went there to zipline with Cape canopy tours. Mountains are majestic, truly amazing. Book a trail and an overnight hut...won't be disappointed. Rugged though, be prepared.

Beautiful scenery 🌼. Nice peaks and wonderful streams at your feet. Had much trouble navigating through the hike route due to lack of indicating signs.
