Nature Area

The Paradyskloof nature area ranks among the most important of many nature areas owned by the Municipality of Stellenbosch. They comprise the cadastral units Farm 366, 369 and 368/2. This nature area comprises more than 400 hectares and ranges from Blaauwklippen Road and Paradyskloof Road all the way up to the mountain peak. It immediately abuts the Hottentotsholland Nature Reserve managed by CapeNature.

Here is the official Paradyskloof Nature Area Environmental Management Plan as well as the Stellenbosch Fire Management Plan. The top-level document governing nature areas in Stellenbosch is the Stellenbosch Environmental Management Framework.
