Rooisand Nature Reserve
For more than a century feral horses have roamed wild at Rooisand Nature Reserve. This has become their preferred habitat, wading through the wetlands between Kleinmond and Botrivier lagoons.


The sun-warmed, sheltered waters of the lagoon harbour abundant fish stocks, providing ample opportunity for fishing enthusiasts to catch a wide range of species.

Boat Rides

Boat rides and sunset cruises on the lagoon are available, on request, and are the ideal way to view the abundant bird and marine life.

Bird Watching @ Meerensee

South Africa ranks as one of the top birding destinations in the world and the lagoon provides a great variety of African birds, both migrant and endemic. Massive numbers of waders are attracted to the lagoon during the southern summer from their Arctic breeding grounds, whilst endemic species include many fynbos specials.
