About Dwesa and Cwebe Nature Reserve
Revitalise your soul and get far from the crowds in the lovely sister reserves of Dwesa and Cwebe.
The two fairly small nature reserves of Dwesa and Cwebe lie on each side of the Mbashe River on the Wild Coast. This awesome setting is bordered on one side by the forest-fringed shores of the Indian Ocean, and on the other by the undulating sourveld grasslands of what was formerly the Transkei.
Dwesa and Cwebe conserve one of the largest swathes of indigenous coastal forest in the Eastern Cape. Another important function is to protect the sensitive inter-tidal and marine environment.
The birdlife is incredible with over 290 species of birds recorded. Birds to spot includes rarities such as the Narina Trogan and Mangrove Kingfisher.
Cape buffalo, eland, zebra, blesbok, blue wildebeest, warthog and crocodiles have been reintroduced. Look out for the Cape clawless otter in the lagoon.
Beautiful trails with amazing views enable hikers to explore the forests, estuary, mangroves, beach and grasslands of Dwesa and Cwebe on foot.
