The Elephant’s Eye Cave is in the western part of the Silvermine Nature Reserve, Cape Town, a 20 min drive from the city centre. Take the M3 south out of the city, at the end of the M3, turn right and at the 2nd traffic light thereafter, turn left onto Ou Kaapse Weg. As you reach the top, the entrance to Silvermine Nature Reserve is to your right. There is a R45 entrance fee per person at the gate, or present your green/wild card. You will receive a brochure with info about the reserve. Proceed to the parking area at the reservoir. The trail starts here.It is an easy to moderate 2 – 3 hour hike out and back with stunning views and a wide variety of plants.
Almost there…Admiring the view…And to end off the day, a picnic next to the reservoir.
