Situated in Somerset West on the slopes of the beautiful Helderberg Mountain overlooking False Bay.
The Helderberg Nature Reserve is located in Somerset West. It is owned and managed by the City of Cape Town with the support of the Friends of the Helderberg Nature Reserve. The Reserve reaches up as far as the cliff faces and the peaks above the Reserve are managed by CapeNature. The Friends of the Helderberg Nature Reserve is a community-based organisation which helps in many ways to promote education, supply information, raise funds, maintain the area and embark on promotional projects aimed at helping the public to enjoy and benefit from the Helderberg Nature Reserve. The Friends is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (Reg. 062-777-NPO). Volunteers and workgroups have developed the boardwalks through the gardens, organised events such as the always popular sunset concerts, and run the gift shop and visitor centre.
