Kenneth Stainbank is a 253 hectare reserve in Yellowwood Park, Durban,which was proclaimed in 1963. Established as a result of a bequest of land from Mr. Kenneth Stainbank, the area offers fine examples of coastal forest and grassland habitats for many species of plants and animals. Notable species are zebra, bushbuck, reedbuck, impala, blue,red and grey duiker, vervet monkey, rock hyrax, slender mongoose, bushbaby, egyptian mongoose, banded mongoose, water monitor and genet. The reserve has an interesting variety of indigenous flora and over 200 bird species on record.
Tucked away in the heart of the Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve, surrounded by giant Yellowwood trees, is Coedmore Castle, a gracious old stone homestead. There are 13 km of nature walks and a pleasant picnic site is available. A walk for the physically disabled has been specially designed. There is also a 10km mountain bike trail which is fairly challenging in places. An entrance fee is charged at the entrance gate, where visitors can obtain maps, plant and animal lists from the Field Ranger.
