Después de días de carretera nos adentramos en la reserva natural justo después de que cerrara para subir a la catarata Duiwelsbos.

A challenge to flee the sunset by the rugged forest where baboons inhabit. There is no need to go up to the waterfall to stretch your legs in this beautiful spot. Recommended for those travelers who think of spending a couple of nights in the quiet Swellendam.
Breathtakingly beautiful here. You will not regret a visit. Make sure you also do the Parkrun!
Superb scenery, well marked trails, good map, beautiful waterfall and river pools, photographer's paradise. Well worth hiking. An Overberg gem.
