LOCATION & MAP

ROBBERG NATURE RESERVE

Robberg Nature

Reserve


Robberg is a World Heritage Site and is a popular nature reserve to visit when in the area.  There are several different trails to choose from for hiking or if you just want to see the view, you can park and look at the views overlooking the ocean.  It's a great place to see whales, dolphins, sea birds and more. Rocks from this region date back 120 million years to the break-up of Gondwanaland and evidence of middle and later Stone Age inhabitation has been found in a few of the caves along the peninsula. Visitors can find out more at the Nelson Bay Cave interpretive centre. There is parking in the reserve which is just a short distance away and you can either hike or just take in the views from the cliffs & picnic area.

Alkantmooi Private Nature Reserve


Alkantmooi's Private Nature Reserve consists of 12Hectares (29 Acres) of Pristine Fynbos-a distinctive type of vegetation found only on the southern tip of Africa.  As you enter the reserve, you start on your short journey on the dirt road up the hill to your destination.  On the way, enjoy the indigenous fynbos flowers and keep an eye out for out for the many creatures that call this reserve home. The best way to see the indigenous animals is to go for a walk through the private reserve early in the morning or in the late afternoon as that's when the animals are most active. Take a walk to the Keurbooms River and have a picnic in the park...you will be amazed at the amount of animals you will see if you just sit in one spot for a while.  Make sure you schedule time to sit & enjoy the views from your private balcony, whether it be ocean view or mountain view...you will not be disappointed!
