Winelands: Fynbos morning hike

Do you want to find out what makes the Western Cape’s fynbos so special? The fynbos of the Western Cape is well-known not only for the biodiversity of its vast species, but also for its wealth of unique and useful plants.

Join the members of Mensa Winelands on Saturday 25 February at 07h45 for an easy morning walk through the fynbos in the Steenbras (Kogelberg) Nature Reserve, led by Andreas Groenewald, acknowledged as one of the Cape’s best conservationist guides.  He’s a registered FGASA nature guide and environmental educator, and highly knowledgeable on the fauna, flora, ecology and geology of the fynbos biome of the Western Cape.  He’s going to be sharing some of this information along a 2.6km walk through the fynbos.  You can read more about Andreas at

After a break for refreshments at one of the natural waterfalls on our route, we’ll return to our starting point, including a stretch along the beach, about 2km in total.  (The whole walk will be a little under 5km.)

Cars will be parked behind locked gates, with a security guard on duty.

The cost of the excursion is R 40pp for Mensa Winelands members, and R 70pp for non-Winelands members, payable by EFT before the excursion.  Children are welcome.

Friends, family and colleagues may join you, but numbers are limited and booking is essential.

GPS co-ords: -34.234831, 18.851737

Bring a hat, sunblock, water and a snack.

RSVP to the Winelands Secretary
