This is a very attractive reserve of coastal forest vegetation interspersed with grassland. Some good, well defined trails have been established. Details of these may be obtained from the office at the entrance gate. There is a small dam. The reserve is bounded on the north and west by the Umhlatuzana River. Bushbuck, common reedbuck, grey, blue and red duiker, impala, zebra and nyala, as well as an interesting population of small mammals and birds are to be seen. Night drives can be arranged. There is an entrance fee. There is also rustic campsite which can accommodate 20 people.
