A lovelly reserve to hike and walk in. Go as a group to avoid any problems with beggars etc. A great place to walk to is the waterfalls. Take a day pack and the kids, it is nit a hard walk.

The Reserve offers wonderful hiking and biking trails with rock pools, waterfalls and a marvellous diversity of proteas and other indigenous plants. One direction circular dirt road approx 7km, not very good - bumpy, stoney and muddy!

A peace of heaven set between the beautiful Stellenbosch mountains. Always fresh water to get along the way. The water actually tastes like honey...you can't get fresher as it comes straight from the mountains.

Lots of routes to choose from. Scenic with plenty of water along the way. Head for the higher contour paths to make the most of the views.
