The Greater Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve is a 2000 hectare wetland, river system and estuary situated on the False Bay coast, close to Marina Da Gama in the suburb of Muizenberg.

The last functional estuary on the False Bay Coast, the reserve functions as a fish hatchery, nursery and habitat for many animals, especially a number of endangered bird species.

Greater Zandvlei Estuary Reserve next to Marina da Gama was declared a local nature reserves in terms of the Provincial Nature Conservation Ordinance in 2006. Visitors can take advantage of picnic tables and two bird hides that have been erected along the circular walk which is just over 1,5 km in length.

Along the way information posters will help you to identify endemic birds and animals found with the reserve. Also of interest to nature lovers is the environmental education centre in the reserve. See more info at Zandvlei Estuary.
