“Molsbroek: rare birds and plants and quite a few Momos also!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Molsbroek that is a nature reserve in my hometown, protected by a few authorities: no noise, no waste, no hunting, no fishing, no motorised traffic etc.
Molsbroek covers 80 Ha (don't know how many acres that is) and it is easy to find: walk/cycle from the railwaystation to the market and look for a signboard: "Molsbroek"
Personaly I don't recommend walking around Molsbroek; I prefer cycling.
The path to and around Molsbroek is well maintained. If ever you don't know a single thing about fauna, flora and momos, just join a free guided tour every first Sunday of the month, starting at he Visitor's center at 2.30pm , The visitor's centre is easy to find.
If you'd like to do Molsbroek on you own you will be guided (4.8 kilometers) by 20(twenty!) notice-boards and binaculars. In Winter you can watch rare birds getting food from behind a fence: you can see the birds, the birds can not see you.
Twelve years ago I cycled with Singaporean visitors around Molsbroek after 10pm, it was freezing 3°; we were in the heart of darkness, there was absolute silence and there was fog.
I remember we were armed with flaslight and a bottle of whiskey...
After 20 minutes, a lady who took the lead stopped and said: "there is a momo behind the tree, I go back to your home..." Yeah, I know there are momos also in Molsbroek, but mainly in Winter at around midnight after you drank a half bottle of whiskey...(translation, "momo=ghost"

But Wintertime is the best time to walk/cycle around Molsbroek. DO!
