Kswane Nature Reserve, previously known as Rustenburg Nature Reserve, is best known for its nearly 1,000 antelope but also has a large number of bird species and a few smaller predators. While not one of the most beautiful of the area's reserves, the park makes for some nice hikes. There are four hiking trails within the reserve - two shorter day trails and two 20-25 km overnight trails. Accommodation is at campsites without electricity (R20/person) or self-catering hiking cottages (R120/person). The reserve is poorly signed from Rustenburg. To get there head south from downtown on Beyers Naude St. At the end of the road you must veer left or right. Take the left side onto Helen Joseph Dr toward Safarituine and continue 4.8 km where you will make a right turn onto a road also signed as Helen Joseph Dr and continue straight 0.7 km to the main gate.
