Rietvlei Nature Reserve
The Rietvlei wetland, a freshwater lake in Milnerton, is both a birder's paradise and a fantastic place to take part in watersport. It features an abundance of flowers during the spring season.
The Rietvlei is about 560 hectares in size and in spring and summer is home to a huge variety of birds, many of them waders. A bird census has shown that 102 species can be found at Rietvlei, of which 70 are regularly there. A bird hide comfortably seats 20 enthusiasts.
There is a network of walking trails. Watersport enthusiasts love windsurfing and sailing on the vlei, and it is also a popular picnic area with places to braai (barbecue).
