“Wet but peaceful and a great place to stroll around”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Unfortunately parts of the reserve was damaged by recent floods. But it was very enjoyable to stroll around. The contour path up the hill the reserve provided beautiful views of the garden and coastline. We will be back to do one of the hikes up the gorge. The service at the restaurant was unbelievably slow and the food very plain.

“Superbly maintained reserve, run by volunteers”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We spent 2 days in the reserve walking the well signposted tracks. There are a variety of tracks to suit all ability levels with plenty of information in the centre and on the printed walk guides. This is a very secure reserve with patrols to ensure your safety.

“Lovely walking in lush fynbos”
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!”
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.
