The Jonkershoek Valley is located about 10 km east of Stellenbosch below the imposing Hottentots-Holland Mountains. Several challenging hiking trails climb up into the steep mountain slopes of the Jonkershoek Forest, ranging in length from 7 km to 18 km.
The natural vegetation of the area is mountain fynbos interspersed with small patches of forested ravines. Pine tree plantations provide welcome shelter from the sun during the summer months.
These mountains are home to a number of large raptors, such as black eagle, spotted eagle owl, and fish eagle. The fynbos provides nourishment to the smaller herbivores in the park.
