“Lovely walking in lush fynbos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Hermanus has had a lot of rain the last season and I have rarely seen the fynbos putting on such a good show. Highly recommend an early morning walk up Lemoenkop.

“So peaceful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Love to walk in Fernkloof, so quite, love the smells, bird life and always look for the tortoise's. Great views of Hermanus once up the mountain. Safe, good exercise and good to stop and smell the "Roses" - take time out and enjoy nature.

“Gorgeous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is a beautiful walk with stunning views of the lagoon. The boat ride is lovely. Because it's a nature reserve you have to visit on the group tour, which means everyone is driven up the slope in trucks - it's a shame, as it would be a nice walk unless weather is really hot or you are very unfit. But you do get to walk down, if you can spread out from the group a little bit it's possible to appreciate the peace and nature. Much of the walk is shady so not too hot. The tour included a meal, which I was doubtful about since the food on these things is often not great - not so here, it was delicious with a really big choice including lots of fresh seafood and fruit.

“Enjoy the flora and birds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

A quiet spot with no entrance fee. A great place for a small picnic with clean toilets. Gorgeous indigenous flora - Proteas, Ericas - always something flowering.Lovely sunbirds visit these flowers. Also look out for tortoises. Hiking paths for the energetic.

“Beautiful walks!”

We really enjoyed an afternoon walk in this nature reserve! Beautiful sceneries, colorful flowers and colorful birds! It also has a lovely information centre about the fynbos fauna and flora! Definitely worth a visit!
