AN INTRODUCTION THE NATURE RESERVES IN AND AROUND TRAFALGAR

The village of Trafalgar is blessed in having no fewer than three official reserves either running through it or immediately adjacent to it. These are the Trafalgar Marine Reserve, the Yengeli Forest Reserve and the Impenjati Nature Reserve. The village itself, however, is also good for nature rambles, as there is considerable wildlife, the birding is good and most of the streets are either lined with trees and/or natural bush.

THE TRAFALGAR MARINE RESERVE.

The Trafalgar Marine Reserve is the smallest of South Africa’s MPAs (Marine Protected Areas), but because of its unique position it is one of the most important. It stretches from Centre Rocks at the mouth of the uMhlangankulu River between Marina Beach and Trafalgar’s main beach in the north, down 4.5 kilometres of magnificent beach passed the Yengele Forest Reserve to the Mpenjati Nature Reserve in the south (Mpenjati is considered part of the same conservation complex). The Trafalgar MPA reaches from the high water mark, one kilometre out to sea, therefore protecting both a terrestrial and a marine environment.

Apart from the obvious attractions of the beach, the Reserve also contains some splendid rocky areas and these are of particular interest because of their fossil content. The fossils are mainly trees, although shells and some other marine life may also be found, but they are all from the Late Jurassic period leading up to the Cretaceous and through it (the Cretaceous being from 136 million to 65 million years ago). Even at low tide the fossils are usually covered by sand or seaweed and may not be touched anyway, as they are protected like everything else in the Reserve.

There are two other MPAs in KwaZulu-Natal, they are the Maputaland and the St Lucia Marine Reserves that form a continuous protected area stretching 150 kilometres from the Mozambique border in the north, southwards to Cape Vidal and then three nautical miles out to sea. Another potentially very important MPA for KZN has also been proposed, and that is the coastal and marine environment adjacent to the Pondoland coast in the Eastern Cape, bordering on KZN. Once this becomes official, this may one day be linked with the Trafalgar Marine Reserve/Mpenjati complex, making this whole coastline a conservation area.

But back to Trafalgar. The Marine Reserve may be accessed from Trafalgar beach and Mpenjati, but there are restrictions – no vehicles on the beach, no boats and therefore no fishing from boats, no spear fishing, and no bait collection.


THE YENGELE FOREST RESERVE
.

This tiny reserve of no more than about 20ha lies to the immediate south of the village of Trafalgar. It is one of the last, and indeed the largest, remnant of coastal dune forest in KwaZulu-Natal, consisting of pristine and primary dune forest featuring a density of indigenous trees such as the specially protected Red and Coastal milkwoods.

Its beach frontage is part of the Trafalgar Marine Reserve and to the south of it again lies the Mpenjati Nature Reserve, which lies both north and south of the mouth of the Mpenjati River, also forming a part of the Trafalgar Marine Reserve. The Yengeli Forest is run by Ezemvelo-KZN-Wildlife and part of it is accessible from Mpenjati on foot.

THE WILDLIFE OF TRAFALGAR.

There are still large areas of the village that are naturally wooded, which means that there is still quite a lot of wildlife around. We have Blue duiker, Common duiker and Bushbuck, both the Tree hyrax and the Rock hyrax, the Large spotted genet and the Large grey mongoose, and of course the Vervet monkey, lots of monkeys. The bird life is prolific and we have well over a hundred species recorded here, including the Fish eagle (nesting at Impenjati), Crowned eagle, the Knysna and the Purple-crested lourie, nightjars, kingfishers and of course sea birds like the Cape Gannet and the African black oystercatcher. Reptile life is also prolific, with the Nile monitor probably being the most spectacular and the Moreau’s tropical house gecko the most common. Of course, there is wildlife at sea as well, our most spectacular being the Humpback whale in the season, as well as dolphins, naturally

We make a special effort to protect our wildlife, both through our own efforts and through the relevant authorities.
THE FLORA OF TRAFALGAR.

Trees have always been important to Trafalgar (see our history) and today we are probably one of the best-treed villages on the Lower South Coast. Of the 737 species on the National Tree List over 150 have been recorded here, and of the seven species that are officially and nationally protected, five occur here. We like to think all our trees are protected, though, and we work with the local authorities to achieve this. Probably the most common tree seen here is the Strelitzia nicolai, the Natal mock banana, which is almost a symbol of the Lower South Coast.

At various times of the year wild flowers can be seen in the open areas in the village and there are also many flowering shrubs in the bush and in private gardens.


TRAFALGAR VILLAGE - A BRIEF HISTORY.

It is understood that a British missionary with the surname of Girdelston, whose wife had some family link with Admiral Lord Nelson of Trafalgar fame, arrived in Natal Colony in the 19th century and bought the original farm that is now the village of Trafalgar from the colonial government. The land was densely forested and uninhabited, and remained so for decades.

Perhaps a century later a mining timber merchant, Alfred de Maine, purchased the farm in 1948. He felled all the suitable timber and tried to farm the land, unsuccessfully, and eventually had it rezoned and laid out as a residential area. De Maine had a fascination for things historical, knew about the Nelson link and to keep it 'in the family', as it were, he called the township or village, Trafalgar, and named all the streets after famous British Royal Navy admirals or seamen, from Admiral Lord Nelson himself through to great Elizabethan sea captains like Drake, Grenville and Hawkins.
