Fernkloof Nature Reserve

The fynbos-clad Fernkloof offers several different grades of walk, and a visit to this dramatic nature reserve is considered obligatory among local holiday-makers. Over 1 600 different plant species are found within the reserve, which compares quite well with the UK’s total number of 1500 species! There are also wheelchair-friendly paths and healing plant gardens. Whether you want the full-day adventure experience or just a little fresh air in the mountains, you won’t be sorry you bothered to pull on your boots.

Hours: 7am-7pm daily.

Admission: Free.
