Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve

Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve

The 253 hectare Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve is regarded as one of the finest coastal / riverine forest and bush clump / grassland mosaic areas remaining in the greater Durban area.

The land was a bequest from a man named Kenneth Stainbank, hence the name, and aside from the wonderful plant life, you also get to see zebra, bushbuck, reedbuck, impala, blue, red and grey duiker, vervet monkeys, mongoose, bushbabies and dassies or rock hyrax. There are even night drives that one can arrange.

Over and above the 13 kilometres of nature walks there is also a 10 kilometre mountain bike trail, regarded as moderately challenging – in other words, a good weekend ride that won’t see you exhausted, and Durban’s mountain bikers enjoy the reserve as a refuge.

Location: Coedmore Avenue, Yellowwood Park, Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Trip down memory lane

In 1995, CROW hosted a fun walk consisting out of a 3km, 5km and 10km walk, with the aim of raising funds for CROW
and simultaneously educating the public on the nature and wildlife that surrounds us.
At that time, it was a huge success and CROW decided to reignite this event and rebrand it as “Walk in the Wild”
