At the mouth of the Keiskamma River in the Eastern Cape, you will discover Hamburg which was first chosen by British-contracted German legionnaires, which clarifies how it got its name. Today it’s only a drowsy minimal empty on the coast; about 90km from East London, with a perfect sea shore and stream, and where the nearby hikers offer guided kayak trails, climbing, angling and chilling. Not to be mistaken for a sea shore of a similar name in False Bay inside the regions of the City of Cape Town, this modest town up the West Coast is something of an unfamiliar gem. Its main fascination is a lovely bend of sea shore to walk around at nightfall. It is about 280km from Cape Town, and about 7km up the coast from the main barely bigger Doringbaai.
About 140km north of Durban lays the town of Mtunzini near the Umlalazi Nature Reserve. With its lovely tidal pond, ridges and sandy sea shore, it’s a little bit of heaven where nature holds influence. The town was pronounced a conservancy in 1995 and has exacting protection rules. It is additionally popular for having a settlement of uncommon palm-nut vultures that live in the raffia palms, which were planted here close to the railroad line. There is a timber promenade through the bog woods that will get you closer to the palms. When all is said in done, the territory is viewed as something of a flying creature watchers’ heaven. Other unique flying creatures to pay special mind to are the African finfoot, Narina Trogon and African cuckoo-peddle. Consider visiting during the Mtunzini Birding Weekend held every year in June/July and make sure to pack those binoculars.
The South Coast is for the most part invaded in the late spring season, however this little villa (when a ranch that had a place with a family called Pennington) is a genuine jewel set in the midst of the rich vegetation of this pleasant coastline. It is a pilot Blue Flag sea shore, which means there are lifeguards in season, and the Pennington Conservancy runs a superb sea shore booth that does teas and Sunday snacks. It’s just about 70km from Durban, so is a simple Sunday trip. Additionally close by are the Umdoni Park and Selborne fairways.
Nature’s Valley lies toward the finish of the celebrated five-day Otter Trail, yet explorers initially need to cross the mouth of the tidal pond, which is the prevailing component of this disconnected beach front town, before they can consider it daily. The town is appropriately named as it is totally encompassed by indigenous backwoods and the Garden Route National Park, so it’s not irregular to see bushbuck touching on the yards. An extraordinary trip is a beach front stroll to the close by Salt River mouth, where you can appreciate total security and disengagement.
