#1 of 10 in Things to do in Kleinmond
Stroll through the heart of a "floral kingdom" at Kogelberg Nature Reserve. Enjoy the rich diversity and quality of plant and animal life at this nature reserve, which shuns the spoiling touch of civilization. The conservation and protection of this habitat is a primary concern of the park, and activities that negatively affect the area's pristine nature are prohibited. You can swim during the summer, or, if you're feeling more adventurous, go canoeing down the river. If you prefer to stay dry, you can always just take an easy walk along the river's edge. Put Kogelberg Nature Reserve into our Kleinmond trip maker site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Kleinmond.

  • About 2 hours from Cape Town, you can walk along the Palmiet River. You will walk the long of very accessible trails through the vegetation type Fynbos. During our stay, the region was still very flowery. Wonderful day

  • Well worth a visit. The nature is absolutely beautiful. It can be quite challenging if you not reasonably fit, but well worth doing  more »
  • Like being on a desert island. Away from the city lights and sounds. Just tranquil mother nature, sounds of the sea & animals. Lovely pristine beach with the mountain right behind you. Amazing sunsets...  more »

  • Just stunning. Wild life all over. Great for hiking and cycling. A must for the outdoor community looking for beutiful experience. I know it was free entry.
  • Beautiful setting with breathtaking views. Numerous stunning hiking trails. The Oudebosch Eco chalets are really something special, integrating seamlessly with the surrounding wildlife. If you love nature then this is a must.
  • An idyll amongst the majestic mountains of the Kogelberg... each cabin is different but all are well equipped and most have wonderful views... Marsh Rose has the best view in my opinion and is slightly apart from the others...
  • Amazing place. Very beautiful. Well kept and organised. Call ahead to see if certain trails are allowed on the day. R50 entry for day hikes. Courteous staff.
  • We loved Kogelberg Nature Reserve and the good walking routes to choose from...very nice walk along the river...we will be back...great photography opportunities.
