Hiked the Tweede waterfall trail up to the second waterfall and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hike is a mellow one with just a small steep section before the second waterfall. The footing is tricky on that section with some rocky bits that can get slippery....More

I had booked all my activities from Viator, but I did leave one day open for any possibility. I met Ken Treloar, a photographer on a previous hike in Cape Town. Our energies got along, and he suggested this activity for me. I like to...More

Easy and most scenic hike to the first waterfall however it must be noted that a low suspension car is not recommended as the road is extremely rocky. It was also disappointing that a few visitors to the reserve were playing loud music and continuously...More

We drove through the Nature Reserve, but were not overly impressed. There was one nice spot on a bridge overlooking a small creek, but there were several other parties already picnicking there, so it wasn't very restful.

This nature reserve boasts many trails for runners and cyclists and hikes. The ring road is passable for all vehicles but needs care in some places. There are 2 easy walks to waterfalls that run throughout the year. The natural flora on show is incredible...More

Pack a picnic and go for a walk. We walked to the first waterfall and has a brilliant time sitting and playing in the water. It is an easy walk so fine to take kids with.

I've been there a number of times but never encountered this - might be an issue around holidays I suppose. But people arrive and leave all the time anyway.
