“Make a day of this! Lots of adventures!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We didn't give ourselves nearly enough time to explore this reserve! There are several trails (short and long) so make a day of this beautiful area. Have a picnic in the elephant eye cave (adourned with ferns!) and enjoy the breathtaking views!

“Amazing Nature”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This place is vast and I only saw parts of it but it's been enough to fall in love with it's beauty. Great place to chill, have a picnic or go walking/running/swimming/mountain biking or rock climbing....great for nature lovers. Such peace. This is why one lives in Cape Town...because one has access to such amazing nature just round the corner.

“Great views by the dam”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Lovely area for a hike along well marked trails and the dam is great to have fun and swim in. Lovely marked off areas so you are not tightly packed amongst others.

“wonderful place to walk”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a nature reserve within Table Mountain National Park. It is a wonderful place to go for a walk, you can choose between a gentle walk around the dam or a longer walk up the mountains: Nordhoek Peak, Constantiaberg, or anything in between. Highly recommended. The path around the dam is partly accessible by pushchairs as well.

“Stunning Views”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Silvermine is only about an hours drive from Cape Town's centre. There are great walks that have views of Noodehoek and Constantia. There is a small lake and areas set aside for picnics. There is no enterance fee.
