A lovely walk but it would be better if it was a ring-route because it isn't as much fun returning the same way that one came.
Walk through the bush and end up on the beach. Inhale forest aromas and then breathe the fresh sea air.
This is absolutely a beautiful place! With the most gorgeous scenery! You walk on a wooden path, underneath breath taking trees, filled with the sounds of birds chirping, monkeys playing in the trees and the beautiful sounds the small insects make fill the air with their presence. One you are about half way in you can either go on a very exciting hike with beautiful "rain forest" like views or you can follow the wooden path, go through a bit of a hike and reach the most beautiful beach. Its not very busy so this is a great place for photography. Would recommend this beautiful place to anyone that loves the beach and the forest. It is child friendly if the child is accompanied by an adult, not wheel chair friendly though.
This is a very nice postal stamp size nature reserve in the city of Umhlanga. My visit in the past 2 days revealed several birds and blue duiker - the smallest antelope in South Africa. My worry is the level of commitment to keep this piece of nature unspoilt in the light of visible overgrowth of alien creepers and the ever decreasing pieces of natural land as development creeps in from the northern side.
Take your camera with. So so interesting. Different with every visit. Just walk in a group or at least 2 people. Night walks are not safe unless organised.
Fantastic place to walk and clear your mind. Clean air, quite and safe beach and mangrove walk. Good for children too. Not wheelchair accessible.
Beautiful reserve with lush forestry and the lagoon right next to it. Great for short hikes that aren't straining. You can also hear the fish eagles that reside there if you listen carefully.
Not very busy like the rest of Umhlanga. You hike to the beach. Not a diffult walk. Even easy for kids. Pay R20 for parking and stay the whole day. There is a beautiful lagoon at the end of the walk
It's a very nice and chilled place... I loved taking pictures there
I frequently walk through this amazing place to escape from suburbia... And I have to commend Enoch the sweet old soul that maintains the reserve by trimming the path and repairing the wooden bridges so we can enjoy the walk comfortably...but what I need to point out to other enthusiasts is he is extremely knowledgeable of the plant life, animals and birds in the reserve. Thank you Enoch ,for the respect you have for the reserve and for all your hard work.
Walking distance from the beach, but sufficient parking bays available. There is a small pic nic area located at the entrance of the reserve and as you make your way in, you have the option of taking either 1 of 2 walking trails. It's recommended that you carry a water bottle with you to remain hydrated as it can get quite hot! Also, don't go if you don't have comfortable walking shoes. Unfortunately we did not get to finish the trail but hope to do so in future. Word of caution: there are a lot of monkeys so try not to carry too much food with you
Great trail with some wildlife roaming free. The vervet monkeys may become aggressive, so be mindful of that. There is some nice birds and other animals in the park. Great find at the end of the beach.
