  • Best not to say too much and too many visitors creates a human ripple effect. If you go for a walk here go because you are Conscious and honouring of Nature. if you are going to be a tourist go to the mall.
  • A beautiful peaceful reserve. Tranquil walk and lots of friendly visitors. Will definitely visit again and partake in a walk along the reserve.
  • Never had any experiences before...doing hiking while I was hearing the sound of waves and smelling the sea all the way. Really an awesome place and will visit again!
  • One of the best technical trail runs in the country. Or take your time and enjoy amazing marine life, geology and archiology to be found in the reserve
  • Robberg is a MUST visit! The most beautiful place I've ever seen... Can't wait to come back and explore more!!!
