Are you after a holiday or weekend trip that offers a bit of exercise too? Try a canoe trail. The Kleinmonde West River Canoe Trail is situated about 15km from Port Alfred (on the R72) towards East London and is a self guided adventure on the water in comfy canoes.
The Kleinmonde West River is a non tidal river so paddling is sure to be slightly easier. Follow the river 9kms upstream and then head out on a 2km hike – your end destination is the Nyala Game Reserve and your overnight accommodation is at Lily Pad Bush Camp. The camp features hot showers, huge wooden bunk beds with mattresses, a large wooden deck with ideal views of the river and a sheltered lapa; perfect for a braai.
There is a lot to see; bushbuck, giraffe, duiker, kudu, nyala, wildebeest and warthog. If you are a keen birder then you are in for a treat – there are a large number of our feathered friends living along the edge of the river.
