A LAZY AFTERNOON AT HELDERBERG NATURE RESERVE

What better way to spend a fabulous March afternoon than lazing on the grass listening to some good old bluesy rock music? Helderberg Nature Reserve hosts a series of sundowner live concerts between December and March and we were luck enough to catch Big Sky, playing their unique mix of rock, country and blues.

I actually missed the name of the harmonica player but he was superb. He's the one with the interesting beard!

The concert itself begins at around 5.30pm but this is such a perfect venue for a picnic on the grass and the audience begins to arrive throughout the afternoon.  Although Helderberg Nature Reserve is well-known for its hiking trails, birdlife, bontebok and giant tortoises which love to munch at the shady lawns, many visitors to the area are unaware of the Sunday concerts. 

The Reserve is set on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain in Somerset West with views stretching as far as False Bay.  It's just a 15 minute drive away from the guesthouse and is well worth a visit, be it for hiking or music.
