An outdoorsy tourist's dream come true, Pledge Nature Reserve boasts many indigenous plants that seem equally appealing to both tourists and birds. The area is made up of forests, wetlands, and fynbos, with a series of paths and hidden benches adding to the reserve's sense of peacefulness. Visitors often describe this place as a "pocket of paradise"--you can take a dog there, as long as you keep him on a leash. Look for a path leading to a lookout point, from which you can survey the surrounding area and maybe snap a few nice shots. Put Pledge Nature Reserve and other Knysna attractions into our Knysna trip itinerary website , and watch your holiday take shape.
Pledge Nature Reserve Reviews
Last visit was 12 years ago when it was in its heydays and the entrance was free. They now charge R20.00 per head which would be reasonable if standards had been maintained sadly this is not the case,... more »
Niet echt aan te raden in de winter. Blijkbaar nog veel werk te doen of slecht onderhouden. Enkele mooie vogels gezien maar planten/struiken miniemaal. more »Not really recommended in winter. Apparently still have much work to do or poorly maintained. Some nice birds seen but plants/shrubs miniemaal.
Incredible hidden wonder in the middle of town! Beautiful and peaceful park with local flora. Incredible recovery after the 2017 fires.
It’s grounds were in fairly good condition but some parts needed trimming back. A wonderful community project that allows some relief from town. Take bug spray because the ticks are BAD!
