Guided walks were available in the Zandvlei Nature Reserve on the northern shore of Zandvlei.
A boat ride from the
False Bay Rendezvous to the Nature Reserve got you there.

Has Zandvlei ever seen such a powerful boat on its waters before?
It was parked outside the Naval Cadet base.

The Zandvlei Nature Reserve boat was looking for lost people around the Scout Base.

Off they go again to look in the Yacht Club Basin for the lost people.
