The Mountain Club of South Africa

CapeNature Areas


CapeNature is a public institution with the responsibility for biodiversity conservation in the Western Cape.

A number of MCSA properties adjoin those owned by, or are part-owned with, CapeNature. Club members must at all times respect and follow the rules for crossing CapeNature land to access our own properties, or for visiting the CapeNature reserves themselves.

Please ensure that you follow all the necessary requirements, so as not to jeopardise our continued access to these precious wilderness areas. Be aware that dogs are not allowed on any CapeNature properties, as well as being forbidden on all MCSA properties. (The only exception is in the case of a fully trained service animal actively assisting a person with a disability.)
