Zandvlei Trust

Muizenberg East Satellite Conservation Areas.

This is a working relationship with the Cape Town Environmental Education Trust (CTEET) and the various Home Owners Associations  and Zandvlei Trust.


When the residential area of Muizenberg East was planned, the EIA's identified certain areas worthy of conservation because they are part of the Cape Flats Dune Strandveld vegetation type. These important linking corridors from the nearby established Nature Reserves were designated "stepping stone" reserves as biodiversity corridors from Table Mountain National Park via the Greater Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve to the False Bay Ecology Park and along the coastal strip down to Wolfgat Nature Reserve and on to the Koggelberg Biosphere.
