The Kabeljous Nature Reserve is a 180 ha area surrounding the Kabeljous River estuary.
It is a very important habitat for water birds, many of which are migratory. Colonies of seagulls and the endangered African black oystercatcher breed in the dunes.
The coastal vegetation provides habitat for bushbuck duiker and greysbok as well.
With golden beaches and the best waves in the world as our back garden, its easy to forget that we enclosed by nature reserves as well.
The Kabeljous River is a magical place and still relatively undiscovered.
Jeffreys Bay photographer Joey Nel rates the Kabeljous Nature Reserve as one of her favourite places to take pictures in nature.
