A rather easy two kilometre trail, the Dassie Trail through the Nahoon Estuary Nature Reserve in East London should take you about an hour or so, depending on whether you walk it or stroll.

And there are many reasons to take it slow, not least of which is the possible sighting of the Narina Trogon, which will please avide birders.

The start of the trail begins at the Visitor Centre and meanders through the forest to an open, muddy area surrounded by beautiful mangrove trees, however most of this very easy trail is on a boardwalk.

Tree labels and numerous useful information boards make it an educational experience for youngsters who will find the walk quite doable.
