Amapondo Backpackers | Port St Johns

Silaka Nature Reserve

Join us for an adventure hike along narrow coastal paths to Silaka Nature Reserve. Silaka boasts a diversity of indigenous fauna and flora.  Hike through the dense wild coastline, spot the vervet monkeys in the trees, laugh at the awkward hornbills flying clumsily, and marvel at the impressive Fish Eagles flying hunting high in the sky.

After about an hour you will arrive at Silaka’s very own private beach.  Leap into the water at Bird Rock, and if you’re lucky, your guide might show you how to catch crayfish (similar to lobsters) in the deep rock pools.

This coastal hike takes about 3 – 4 hours there and back.  Its

a totally awesome, and at times a little challenging, adventure hike.

Finish the day off back at Amapondo with a cold refreshing beer and some yummy food at our Pondolicious Restaurant.
