My trip to through the nature reserve was fun even though I felt like I was dying half the time because of the heat. Which made me realize that fynbos doesn't cool you down it provides no-little shade that is why walikg through its bush was such a mission.
I learn't that the park has snakes, antelope, frogs, birds, mongeese etc as wildlife. The reserve also experienced a human disturbance which was an unplanned fire, the source unknown. I first saw the effects of this fire while driving past in Robert Sobukwe road when it was still called Modderdam road. It caught my eye and I liked the contrast of the burn't bare black trees against the fresh green grasses rising from the earth ignorant at the time of how that picture perfect environment had occurred.
I saw the fire break areas where planned fires had occurred this takes place during the summer-autumn seasons. The reserve also has an artificial wetlands which was dry unfortunately.
