Overview
More
We are a large Private Nature Reserve set between the majestic mountains and forested coast of the garden route. We offer a number of expertly guided hikes and trails, each personalised to the specific interests of our guests. The walks take us through the reserves' indigenous forest and often include long stretches of the magical photographic Buffels river. Prices and walking paces vary. Please pre-book. We also run a number of children s programmes from our conservation/education centre, and offer free professional advice on all issues relating to wildlife and captive animal management. Our mission: to inspire understanding and enthusiasm for our wonderful natural world; to educate people of all ages thereby ensuring the protection of wildlife, now and for future generations; and to operate a wildlife rehabilitation centre of international standards. Please note: entry to the reserve is free; we charge for activities only.
