The garden is really big so we took the shuttle. The driver was friendly, helpful and knew the flowers. It is the most beautiful botanical garden I have ever seen!

The area was hit hard by a huge fire earlier this year but the reserve is already starting to recover from it and we even in the affected areas we saw lots of plants and flowers. The entrance to the parking area, where you can buy hiking permits (50 Rand), is easily missed to use your navigation. The road is one lane but there are enough spots to pass other cars. At the time of our visit only track 4 (hiking, next to the river) and 5 (mountainbiking, above the river, we took it back to the parking while we didn't want to go the same way back and forth, 4 is nicer however) are opened. The first stretch is through an area that was hit by the fire but the last through lovely green lush bushes. Lots of birds, and some monkeys (on a safe distance, not interested in us) too.
Saw only two other hikers the entire hike. Really enjoyed this beautiful reserve.

Toilets and a picknick area at the parking. You can also picknick next to the river on 2/3 of the track. Take your own drinking water with you.
The Leopardtrail is closed at the moment but hopefully can be opened again any time soon.

A seemingly green & brown boring mountain nature reserve. Not at all - it has more plant species per hectare than anywhere else on earth ! Great hiking trails, overnight cabins. Peace & desolation. If you want to get a bit of history buy Peter Slingsby's book "T.P.Stokoe". Please go & visit & learn more.

Well worth a visit. The nature is absolutely beautiful. It can be quite challenging if you not reasonably fit, but well worth doing
