Thanks to Dr Rudolph Marloth, who petitioned Swellendam’s Minister of Lands and Forestry to declare part of the Langeberg a reserve in 1928, this 14,000-hectare patch is still relatively undefiled by man and home to all manner of wild critters like klipspringers, baboons, dassies and fish eagles. There are trails for all fitness levels, from short forest walks past rock pools and waterfalls, to higher grade hikes.

Hours: 7.00am-4.00pm Mon-Fri.

Admission: R30 adults; R15 under-18s.

No- Credit Cards are accepted.
