A Natural Monument and World Heritage Site, Robberg Nature Reserve is one of the most important and iconic experiences in Plettenberg Bay, along South Africa’s Garden Route.
Some of the main highlights include spotting the rare blue duiker, the Western Cape’s smallest antelope; walking alongside one of the seven climbing-falling dunes on the Cape coastline; and viewing the highest navigational light on the South African coastline, at the Cape Seal Lighthouse (146m above sea level).
The reserve also extends 1.8km offshore, providing protection to a range of vulnerable fish species. Visitors can expect inspiring landscapes, exciting dolphin and whale sightings in season, and to be accompanied on their walks or hikes by a variety of bird species and the occasional seal. An overnight hut is available for those who want to spend more time on this beautiful reserve
With both the Keurbooms River and now open to the public again (with limited times), here’s what Robberg offers through the lens:
Robberg Nature Reserve will be open for anglers, hikers and trail runners, but one needs to book online as there is a limit of 120 people per day, including Wild Card holders. As for Keurbooms activities, these will be limited to the above as National Parks and Nature Reserves are otherwise closed under the current Level 3 lockdown.
