The Conservation Area & Friends of Die Oog

What is Die Oog?

Die Oog is a nature reserve and bird conservation area. It’s also a natural heritage site of the Constantia Valley.

Die Oog is open to the public and is a brilliant spot for a picnic, photoshoot, or some quiet time after a busy day. Although there are no ablution facilities in Die Oog itself, there is a nearby shopping centre with necessary amenities.

Entrance to the conservation area is free, but donations are always appreciated. The area is open 7 days a week during sunlight hours. No pets allowed in Die Oog, unfortunately.

In an emergency call, the BKM Watch on 086 000 2669.
