New Coastal Dune Hiking Trail

Calling all plant lovers to join the Friends of Blaauwberg Conservation Area in the first guided botanical walk of the new Coastal Dune Hiking Trail. Custodians of Rare and Endangered Wildflowers and biodiversity staff will be at Eerste Steen to welcome you and provide identification of plants along the 4.4km trial.

If you’re keen to join, meet at the Environmental Education Centre at Eerste Steen Resort at 9am on the 6th February equipped with your hiking shoes, hats, sun protection, cameras and refreshments. Gate fees for non-members are R14.00 p/p and R20.00 per vehicle.

For more information visit or contact Kay Loubser on 072 428 4488 to confirm your participation.



Friends of Blaauwberg Conservation Area have been hard at work creating a unique West Coast flowering guide, a printed booklet that you can use to identify some of the most popular flowering plants on the inland coastal dune section of the West Cape. You can order your booklet for R60 and pick it up on the 6th at Eerste Steen.
