The nature reserve lies on a peninsula within the military base on the end of Saldanha Bay, but don't let the military association put you off. The reserve has exceptional sea views and the rocks and vegetation combine for a beautiful setting.

The reserve is open to the public; enter via boom gates at the military academy.

Although the trail markings are not particularly clear there used to be clear red, green, blue and yellow trail indicators - and many of the route markers are either old or broken,the ride is easy as most of the terrain is flat, and the routes are not difficult to work out as they follow jeep track and dirt roads around the peninsula.

The family can make a day of it as people rate Langebaan's estuary highly for kite-boarding, windsurfing, fishing, bird watching and hiking.

In the area:
Postberg Flower Reserve, West Coast National Park, South Head Lighthouse and Tietiesbaai.
