The Robberg Peninsula

The next day our plan included a hike in the Robberg Nature Reserve. After breakfast we got ourselves together and set off to the peninsula nearby. This turned out to be a wonderful 3 hour hike in which we saw seals, birds, and even the tiny Blue Duiker, a small antelope-like creature that dwells in the forest undergrowth. The trail was at times steep and at other times it was like hiking across sand dunes. It was a bit more challenging than we expected but the views were amazing. Some sections required handrails for which I was quite grateful.

Looking back toward Plett

Seals

We walked on a beautiful sand beach and around a small island on a boardwalk.

It was a good thing we went in the morning because by the time we got back to the car (feeling pretty old and tired!) it was beginning to cloud up.
