OUTING – Ganzekraal Coastal Nature Reserve. Leader: Felicity Ellmore.
September 16 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet at 08h00. Ganzekraal is a Cape Nature reserve on the R27 about 8 km north of Koeberg Nature Reserve. It is quite extensive along the coast and comprises Strandveld and some wetlands, streams, old pasture, rocky shores, sandy beaches, and historic buildings (great for roosting). It will be about a 3 hour walk, depending on the number of birds. Take water and a snack.
Directions: Travel up the R27, past the Koeberg NR, and the Silverstroomstrand and turn left towards Ganzekraal Resort. We will meet just outside the gate of the resort at 8am.
We will be parking the cars inside the Ganzekraal Resort and walking from there. The walk will be in the coastal section of the Ganzekraal Nature Reserve.
At the beginning of the walk there is a wooden walkway with steps down to a short, sandy beach, which we will need to cross to get to the start of a jeep track. We will walk along the jeep track, which is mostly flat. The walk will take between two and a half and three hours, then we will be back at the cars for tea.
