The iconic fynbos covered Robberg Peninsula, a trademark often referred to as the Cape Point of the Garden Route is a Marine Protected Area and a national monument just a mere 8km from the magnificent Plettenberg Bay. It is here that the African Edu-Eco Wizard team has integrated a number of Experiential Interpretative Eco-Hiking activities on the Garden Route and more specifically on the Robberg Peninsula into its portfolio of Passive Adventures. Robberg’s rock formations date back between 110 and 130 million years when South Africa formed part of a super continent. Around 120 million years ago the continent split, depositing Robberg’s rocks in the Sea bed.
People first inhabited the Peninsula some 120 000 years ago. As sea levels dropped grassland were formed. The reserve abounds with evidence of the Stone Age with Nelson Bay Cave providing some of the best examples. Records suggest that the first European visitors were the crew of the Portuguese fishing vessel, the Sao Goncalo which was wrecked here in 1630.
Montane fynbos thrives on the steep well drained slopes. Robberg is home to an incredible variety of wildlife such as the diminutive Blue Duiker, the huge gathering of seals on the rocks between Kanonkoelgat and Duikerkrans. Humpback dolphins and bottlenose dolphins frequent the inshore waters. Southern Right whales visit between May and November to give birth to their young. Humpback whales and Bryde’s Whales can occasionally also be seen. The peninsula is a birdwatchers paradise with numerous endemic species present as well as pelagic seabirds.
Our lead guides are professional and very highly qualified, survivors in their own right, educators and teachers who love sharing and teaching what they know. The various hiking programs can be enjoyed either in the early morning or mid-late afternoon depending on your availability.
