Nahoon Point Nature Reserve, East London

Nahoon Point Nature Reserve, East LondonNahoon Point Nature Reserve is a community project, supported by DaimlerChrysler, that has restored this lovely area after the discovery of a 120 000 year old footprint. Enjoy 12km of footpaths and boardwalks, an interpretation centre and restaurant.

The Nature Reserve is uniquely located in the centre of East London. The footprint found at the Reserve that scientists believe to be 120 000 years old (the oldest known humanoid footprint in the world) inspired the shape of the DaimlerChrysler Coastal Education and Visitor Centre.

There are some 12 kilometres of footpaths and boardwalks and the ecological diversity 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 340 ha of the reserve, Estuary, Nahoon River and adjoining areas.
