Jonkershoek Nature Reserve - Stellenbosch

The Jonkershoek mountains and valley lie above the town of Stellenbosch and are part of the Boland mountain range. Together the two reserves comprise over 10,000 hectares of pristine natural beauty and diversity. Fynbos, proteas and over 1,100 plant species are present in the reserves while leopard, baboon, black eagles, klipspringer, sugarbirds, mongoose and spotted eagle owls also call the reserves home. Hikers should also be aware that dangerous cape cobras, adders and boomslang are also present in the Jonkershoek and Assegaaibosch Nature Reserves.

The Eerste, Berg, Lourens and Riviersonderend rivers have their sources in the Jonkershoek mountains and flow further down through the winelands town of Stellenbosch.

The Jonkershoek Nature Reserve along with the Assegaaibosch Nature Reserve are open daily for visits to walk and hike, fish, mountain bike and horse ride in the mountains for a small admittance fee. Accommodation and conference facilities are also available for rent.
