Nice reserve, we rented a kayak and kayaked up the estuary. It was relaxing. I wish we had more time to do some of the hikes in the reserve

“Best place on the garden route”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Goukamma Reserve and beach are too nice for words.... come for birdwatching and canoing if the wind is not too strong and swim in the river or walk the trail....do not expect other animals and bring a picnic basket.

“Nature”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

If you are a Nature person this is a must, walking along the unspoiled beach and the green unique forest opens a door to your soul that you wil never gorget.
