Game Viewing along the Wild Coast
There are many coastal nature reserves, run by Eastern Cape Parks, that dot the Wild Coast. Whilst all contain small game in their forests, such as Bushbuck, Duiker and Monkeys, it is only the larger reserves, like Dwesa, that contain larger species like Zebra, Buffalo, Eland, Rhino and Warthog. The 3900ha Dwesa Nature Reserve comprises coastal forest, open grassland, winding rivers and a diverse coastline. On the northern banks of the Mbashe River is Dwesa's sister reserve, the 2200ha Cwebe conservation area. The Hluleka and Mkambati Nature Reserves take their names from the rivers on which they are situated, and are both part of popular Wild Coast hiking trails. Private Game Reserves include Endalweni and Inkwenkwezi.
