Winelands: Fynbos morning hike

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 us on Saturday 24 March, at 07h45 for an 08h00 start, for what has become something of an annual tradition at Mensa Winelands – our third easy morning walk through the fynbos at Steenbras (Kogelberg) Nature Reserve, with one of the Cape’s best conservationist guides, Andreas Groenewald, who is highly knowledgeable on the fauna, flora, ecology and geology of the fynbos biome of the Western Cape.

Andreas, a registered FGASA nature guide and environmental educator, is going to be sharing some of this information along a 2.6km walk through the fynbos, showing us what makes the Western Cape’s fynbos so special. You can read more about Andreas here.

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.)

The cost of the excursion is R40pp for Mensa members, and R70pp for non-members. Friends, family and colleagues may join you, and children are welcome, but numbers are limited and booking and pre-payment is essential.

GPS co-ords: -34.234831, 18.851737

Bring a hat, sunblock, water and a snack.
