The New Germany Nature Reserve is a small reserve that on top of some hills in New Germany near Pinetown. The habitat in the reserve is a mix of grassland and coastal forest. It is 110 hectares in extent.

The reserve features quite a good list of bird species and it is also known for its wild flowers in spring. Some small mammals are present including Blue Duiker, Grey Duiker and Impala.

At the entrance to the reserve is a large aviary which houses many species of indigenous birds. There is also a small museum-type display at the entrance as well as various live snakes in tanks.

Entrance to the reserve is free and there are some picnic areas, overlooking the reserve, near the gates.

Above - The aviary at New Germany Nature Reserve houses many species of indigenous birds. The aviary is huge and allows birds like this Knysna Lourie to stretch their wings.

Below - I am always amazed at the attention to detail given to the birds food. These platters are really amazing! Well done to the staff. One of the many food platters for the birds in the aviary at New Germany Nature Reserve
