Founded in 2013 and registered in 2015, the Banhoek Conservancy was

environment, to uplift the community and to re-establish a balance
between human activities and nature.

within the Banhoek valley, outside Stellenbosch in the Western Cape,
The conservancy generates an income by providing well
designed, permanently marked off-road tracks so that athletes can hone
their performance in beautiful surroundings. Parts of these tracks are
regularly used for running, hiking and mountain bike races.

alien vegetation, provide work for the local community and to protect
the environment in the Banhoek valley.
