Pierre van Ryneveld Nature Area
Pierre van Reyneveld Nature Area Coordinates 'S25 50 347 E028 14 363



These 16 hectares of natural, open, rocky plains in Pierre van Ryneveld have been zoned as an open green area that is protected by the City of Tshwane's Nature Conservation Subsection. This high-lying area still sprouts reasonably preserved indigenous plants that are typical of the Bankenveld vegetation type. This veld type, also known as Rocky Highveld Grassland, is threatened by urban development, industrialisation, mining, alien plants and, to a lesser degree, agriculture. Numerous bird species and some small mammals and reptiles can be spotted in this nature area.
