The Rondebosch Common is a conservation area for the endangered Cape Flats Sand Fynbos vegetation which is endemic to Cape Town. A large variety of species are protected here including 110 species of birds such as the blue crane as well as many small animals, reptiles and amphibians. This national treasure was previously used as a military camp and in 1805 the Dutch farmers came together here before the Battle of Blaauwberg. Troops were often stationed here right up until the Second World War.
Now, Rondebosh Common is a stunning place to stroll through, picnic and enjoy the sunsets.
