Over the last few weeks, we’ve been telling you about our 40% winter discount and some of the amazing nature reserves to spend your perfect winter holiday. Yet did you know that CapeNature has more than 20 different reserve destinations to visit? These are our top picks to consider when planning your winter getaway in 2022.
Keurbooms Nature Reserve is located within the Garden Route, just outside Plettenberg Bay. It is a sanctuary for bird life such as the giant kingfisher, Knysna loerie, and fish eagle, and is home to various indigenous tree species including the Cape beech, stinkwood, and Outeniqua yellowwood. Keurbooms is the only CapeNature reserve that doesn’t allow immediate access to visitor accommodation. Upon arriving you will have the unique opportunity of taking a 4-hour canoe paddle along the Keurbooms River, encountering rapids and a multitude of wildlife before reaching the Whiskey Creek Cabin. Equipped with an open-air kitchen, expansive deck with a braai area, and a timber walkway down to the river, the cabin sleeps 10 guests and is built for comfort.
