THE BLACK OYSTERCATCHER COASTAL HIKING TRIALS
The African Black Oystercatcher Conservation and Breeding program has been successfully implemented in close working relation with the University of Cape Town and efforts of property owners on the Estate. (The African Black Oystercatcher is classified in the International Red Data Book as vulnerable).
There is a hiking trail running north from Kabeljoubank along the waterfront culminating at the river mouth. Movement along the beaches north of the river mouth is not encouraged as it interferes with the breeding ground of the Oystercatcher. Visitors and residents will discover pebble beaches, sandy bays, foam bays, cliffs, and long stretches of pristine white sand. Here eligible and licensed visitors can catch fish like; Stumpnose, Kuter, Kabeljou (Season Dependant)
