“Fantastic Shark Experience at Robberg.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Following a short pleasant drive from KNysna Stays Guest House to Robberg with my family we had a wonderful experience . To our amazement we were priviledged to see Hammer Head Sharks close to the rocks. We also saw 2 x Great White Sharks in the surf by the beach. The whole day consistsed of wonderful wild life sightings , birds , seals , and to top it all the sharks.
The Weather was at its best a beautiful April autumn day with temperatures up to 35 degrees and a pleasant sea breeze, calm waters enabled us to see these spectular sights.
Thank you SanParks for caring for this wonderful world heritage nature reserve Robberg, Plett nr Knysna.

“Great peninsula, with cliffs, beaches and seals”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Cliff top walks are not for the faint hearted, lovely beaches, good for paddling but high seas on our visit meant swimming was out of the question.

“SA Nature - raw and spectacular”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

The full circuit hike is not for young kids but you can shorten it.

You really do get to see, smell and hear the African Fur Seals

Must carry water and ideally a picnic lunch in a backpack

Be ready to be tired after the hike but it is so worth it!
