This is a 2,5 km walk through indigenous forest. An amazing, often unseen, part of the reserve. Traversing down into the valley we first encounter the Buffels River at a beautiful, naturally made, rock pool. From here we follow the river exploring the banks, pools, and forest edges as we go. There is always lots to see as the river is full of life. We follow a steep trail back up to the top of the reserve, ending with spectacular views of Robberg Nature Reserve and Plettenberg Bay
GRADE: Moderate – on the go enjoyable
COST: R160 per person including conservation entrance fee to the reserve, a snack pack and cold drink.
