We were looking for a walking trail not too far out of the city, and by accident came upon a webpage about the Kenneth Steinbank Nature Reserve. A liitle bit wary and sceptical (since it is situated in a not-so-good area) we drove out on a Sunday morning, paid the R20 per person entrance fee, and drove along the very well kept dirt road to the various picnic spots. What a surprise!!! Dense forest, followed by grassland, followed by wetland.....many species of trees (well marked) including the Genuine Yellow wood, the Outeniqua Yellow wood, the Flat Crown, White Iron Wood, etc. We walked the walking trails and bumped into zebra, who posed for beautiful close-up pics, sat at a serene dam in the shade, discovered the historic Coedmore Castle, and even had a lovely view of the harbour and Durban City from atop a hill.
A wonderful outing .... next time we will be taking picnic goodies with and enjoy a decent braai in the well laid out areas.
