Reviewed February 12, 2014

My husband and I booked this nature reserve for our wedding and after the decorations, the castle was tranformed into a jewel. Our colour of the day was red and black, so can you imagine that elegance in a white marquee, surrounded by the beauty of the animals. Thank you Jenny for your support. It was a wedding to remeber (04/01/2013).

We were looking for a walking trail not too far out of the city, and by accident came upon a webpage about the Kenneth Steinbank Nature Reserve. A liitle bit wary and sceptical (since it is situated in a not-so-good area) we drove out on a Sunday morning, paid the R20 per person entrance fee, and drove along the very well kept dirt road to the various picnic spots. What a surprise!!! Dense forest, followed by grassland, followed by wetland.....many species of trees (well marked) including the Genuine Yellow wood, the Outeniqua Yellow wood, the Flat Crown, White Iron Wood, etc. We walked the walking trails and bumped into zebra, who posed for beautiful close-up pics, sat at a serene dam in the shade, discovered the historic Coedmore Castle, and even had a lovely view of the harbour and Durban City from atop a hill.

A wonderful outing .... next time we will be taking picnic goodies with and enjoy a decent braai in the well laid out areas.

It is a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon- walking and riding bikes along the path in a forest.

This is a wonderful and peaceful small nature reserve at the southern outskirts of the city of Durban, and can be visited on foot. This nature reserve is stocked with wild fauna among which, the elusive red duiker deserves a mention. This small antelope can be occasionally spotted among the bushes if one walks silently and carefully. A half-day hike is all that is needed to visit the whole park.
