A natural wonderland in our own backyard

The Reserve measures some 2000 hectares in extent and comprises a tapestry of extreme topography, rich in pristine flora and fauna. Given is proximity, the Reserve is integral to the town and offers easy pedestrian access from Barry or Tanner Street.

The area is very popular with hikers and accommodates 2 highly acclaimed trails and 4 popular walks. The Reserve is also highly regarded by rock climbers who can test their skills on any of the 200 bolted routes.

In addition the Reserve accommodates Joubert Park, located on the banks of Keisie River, and numerous of the town's well known tourist landmarks including; Kanonkop, Eyssenhuis, Loverswalk, Klipspringer Cabins, Badskloof, Donkerkloof, Cogmanskloof, Keurkloof and Aasvoelkrans.

Even the very popular Fort Sidney and the iconic tunnel within Cogmanskloof fall within the Reserve boundaries. The Reserve is managed by the Langeberg Municipality - 023 6158000 with the assistance of an Advisory Board that meets on a monthly basis.
