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.
Jeffreys Bay photographer Joey Nel took this panoramic image of the Kabeljous RIver by stitching 10 different photographs together.
