Beautiful day out to Stainbank Nature Reserve for a picnic and a short hike. For those avid lanscape photographers, there's the beautiful foliage, streams, Zebra, Antelope and ofcourse birds to capture for your book of memories. A peaceful, realxing environment to picnic in one of a few picnic areas. Entry fee is R25 per person (please request for a receipt)

Not far to travel as quite centrally located, but would need own vehicle or taxi. Fabulous birding, and animals as well. The birding fraternity should visit early in the morning.
