Situated along the banks of the Mpambonyoni River, the TC Robertson Nature Reserve offers its visitors a unique nature experience. The reserve has become a popular picnic and braai venue for people who enjoy spending a pleasant day in the country. A walk in the reserve will take one through coastal forest, coastal grasslands, wetlands, riverine and estuarine systems, palmveld and thornveld. An interpretation of the name Mpamonyoni, is "where birds gather" and the bird life is indeed prolific with over 200 species having been recorded here. A strategically placed hide offers the bird watcher the chance to observe both terrestrial and aquatic birds. Also in the reserve, one can find an assortment of smaller wildlife from buck to butterflies and mongoose to monkeys. There are 12 km of established trails which can either be self-guided walks by a ranger.
