In the middle of suburbia is Die Oog. It’s not apparent at first glance, but this conservation area is teeming with life. The dam, the fynbos, the frogs, the birds, the shrubs and wetland below the dam all interact with each other, creating a wonderful surviving bio-diverse area. Every day offers different sightings, from hundreds of birds in the early evening to terrapins sunning themselves on hot summer days. Come and experience it for yourself. Enjoy the viewpoint, have a quiet picnic or just sit on one of the benches and enjoy the sounds. It’s also a great spot for geocaching!
Die Oog belongs to the City of Cape Town, is currently designated as a Conservation Area and is included in the City of Cape Town Nature Reserves Handbook.
