Nahoon Point Nature Reserve, East London
Nahoon Point Nature Reserve is a community project, supported by DaimlerChrysler, that has restored this lovely area after the discovery of 124,000 year old footprints. Enjoy 12km of footpaths and boardwalks, an interpretation centre and restaurant.
The Nature Reserve is uniquely located in the centre of East London. The footprints found at the Reserve, that scientists believe to be 200,000 years old (the oldest known humanoid footprints in the world), inspired the shape of the DaimlerChrysler Coastal Education and Visitor Centre.
Ecological diversity at the reserve ranges from marine, coastal dune forest, estuary and inter-tidal systems. This makes it an ideal spot for outdoor activities, environmental education and visitation.
Alien vegetation was removed from about 340ha of the reserve, Estuary, Nahoon River and adjoining areas.
Take the Gleneagles off-ramp from the R72. Follow Gleneagles Road to Galway Road, turn left onto Galway Road and then right onto Epsom Road. Follow Epsom Road to the end.
