Asegaaibos picnic area

Why not visit Asegaai­bosch after spend­ing some time hik­ing, cycling or fish­ing at Jonker­shoek. It is a mere 1.2 km from the Jonker­shoek gate. Here you can qui­etly relax, watch­ing the Eerste River gur­gling slowly by

while the kids splash and play in the shal­low water.

The pic­nic area is shaded by giant Oak, Keur­boom and Yel­low­wood trees so one is almost guar­an­teed of a shady spot to spread your blan­ket under, or if you like, you could choose to be seated at one of the out­door pic­nic benches.

If you pre­fer to light a fire and braai, there are approx­i­mately six back to back built in braais. Bring your own braai grid and wood as there are none sup­plied, and if you do for­get any­thing, the near­est super­mar­ket is in town. Another item not to for­get is your wild Card, as this valid both at Jonker­shoek and Asegaaibosch.

Asegaai­bosch also has three short hik­ing routes, vary­ing in dis­tance between 2.9 and 5.5km around the wild flower gar­den. There is another easy walk from Asegaai­bosch to the con­ser­va­tion sta­tion where a fresh water aquar­ium is on dis­play dur­ing office hours.


The Asegaai­bosch farm­stead ws built in 1790 by Jan Andriessen and the huge old oak trees were planted by Wouter Eduard Wium in 1817. The farm changed hands sev­eral times over the years, becom­ing neglected, until the Cape Provin­cial Admin­is­tra­tion pur­chased it in 1960. It has since been ren­o­vated, is now a National Mon­u­ment and used as a guest house.

In 1893 the Colo­nial Gov­ern­ment rented a por­tion of the estate adja­cent to Asegaai­bosch for the estab­lish­ment of a trout hatch­ery. The sturdy, stone hatch­ing house was con­structed by John Scott and is now a national mon­u­ment. Today Cape­Na­ture utilise the prop­erty as a con­ser­va­tion station.(CapeNature)
