On going for a walk in the HH Nature reserve I was surprised at how nature had fought back after the fires and there was evidence of new shoots in trees and new seedlings popping up.

I enjoyed a lovely day in the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve, ziplining from mountain to mountain! The scenery is gorgeous, and it's a fun activity no matter the weather. The hiking trails looked incredible, and I would definitely go back to try them out!
