Diep River Walk - 16 September 2007
Page 1/20 next >>
Sunday afternoon 16 September turned out to be a lovely afternoon for a walk in the Diep River area north of Blaauwberg Road Bridge. A group of twenty-three joined in the walk led by Cliff Dorse and Sandiso Kraai from Cape Town Nature Conservation.

The walk started at the Raats Drive / Gie Road junction, the group walked along the edge of the river behind the Tuscan Waters development, and then on into the floodplain area south of the railway line. Many of the spring flowers were in full bloom and Cliff identified many of the rare and interesting species for the group.

We walked northwest into the corridor which will link the Diep River to the Blaauwberg Conservation Area, and were shown some interesting remnants of fynbos. The open area across Gie Road from Parklands is really looking well after most of the invasive aliens had been removed.
