Silaka Nature Reserve lies on the south side of Second Beach. Park your car at the Office and take the trail along the coastline either north towards Second Beach or south towards Sugarloaf Rock. Beautiful scenery.
Silaka is a small reserve with Zebra, Wildebeest and Blesbok. The wildebeest tend to behave like cattle - remember they are not tame, keep your distance. Unfortunately very few indigenous animals remain in the reserve, but you may be lucky to see puti. Silaka also offers good bird watching. If you are here when the Port St. John’s Lily is in flower (December to February), look for (the grove) along the river.
