Well signposted trails of differing lengths through fynbos covered hillsides, easily accessed from Hermanus. Easy walking for anyone moderatly fit. We walked the Lemonkoof trail, about 1.5 hours round trip, with lovely views over Hermanus and Walker Bay. Saw whales in the bay from the trail with our binoculars. Lots of Proteas and other fynbos plants still in bloom in mid September.

This reserve is delightful, being full of interesting flora and with the walks very well marked. A great place to walk even if you don't like flowers!l If you do, then it is a marvellous place to learn about fynbos.

The peace tranquility and reflective space. It has not been so green in several years and an absolute must when travelling with children. You will save on the school fees in the years to come. Strange how few local visitors can be spotted. An uncut diamond in desperate need of some local marketing.

Well marked walking paths with different levels of fitness required. Excellent fynbos species available for plant lovers. Beautiful views of Hermanus and Walker Bay from most of the paths.

A great few hours walking. 3 different paths to choose from and if you're lucky you will see whales and baboons on your travels.
