what a hidden gem! And so close to PE. Is amazing just how spectacular this place is. A Mini Baviaans Kloof. Went and had a braai next to river. Also hiking available. Place is managed by local community which I like!

Found this place while driving and exploring the area. Friendly staff and well maintained gardens and trails. This is worth a full day visit to explore more of the scenic wonder of the region. Definitely take along a camera, binoculars and your hiking shoes. There is no refreshments on site so make sure you bring along.

Pristine reserve just about 10km outside Uitenhage with excellent hiking trails and safe, well kept braai areas next to the river and with clean ablution facilities.
