Interesting place

Guides are very friendly and helpful, interesting experience, really enjoyed it especially my small kids of 2 and 3. Just don't take your pram in unless it's 4x4.

The Robberg Nature Reserve is the perfect place for a walk, picnic, swim, take amazing photographs, no rush. With stout walking shoes, some water, sun block, cap and camera, and as long as the weather is good, you are assured of a memorable outing. If the weather is fine, you could have a cooling swim in the magnificent Indian Ocean.... More

Lovely walking paths. Nature at its best. Waves breaking on the rocks. You can find yourself here. Would have been able to sit to there with my camera all day. Great outdoors exercise.

We only did a short 1 hour hike - loved the views and the best was a pod of dolphins surfing the waves! It's an absolute must do even if you have dicky knees! Or suffer from vertigo! For the younger set - easy! Highly recommended

The Robberg Reserve peninsula is stunningly beautiful- the trail hugs the rugged coast where there is a good chance of seeing dolphins, fur seals and even whales. There are 3 possible routes, short easy, medium and long. I strongly reccomend the medium- it has the best combination of sights and takes about 3 h with stops.

Good spot to view the wild and spectacular coast-line. The entrance fee of ZAR140 per car per day is high considering there are no services offered in exchange.
