Don’t Forget: Sunday 22 September at 07:15am. Harold Johnson Nature Reserve.
The Reserve Management are looking forward to our visit. There are different birding routes. Take the ‘short and easy’ or you can drive to the forest camp and explore woodland and grassland. The more energetic can take a 5km circular route of forest and grassland. You will find wonderful views of Fort Durnford on the banks of the Tugela River and its estuary.
There are braais and undercover areas in case of inclement weather.
I will bring charcoal and tongs so that you can braai later if you so choose. Bring your own picnic and chairs.
With its well –preserved coastal bush, steep cliffs and gullies, the Reserve is a fine place to come for a day’s visit or an overnight camp. The 104 ha Reserve boasts indigenous trees, mammals, a rich variety of bird life and butterflies. Directions: Take Zinkwazi / Darnall N2 (North) to Darnall, turn right at robot.
