Walk hike holiday Zeeland nature

Oranjezon nature reserve

Walking from land towards the sea, you will encounter forest, scrub and dune grassland. In the seafront, you walk among marram grass and occasionally see the sea between the dunes.

Oranjezon has long been used as a water catchment area: water from elsewhere was brought into the dunes to be filtered through the sand. The purified water was discharged again via water supply channels. The large amount of fresh water caused the dunes to become more overgrown: species such as dune reed and American birdcatcher appeared.

Today, Oranjezon is a beautiful nature reserve, where you can encounter roe deer and fallow deer. The variation in landscape makes it a favourable habitat for many species of plants and animals. Nature restoration projects have helped to bring back species such as brushbush, yellowheart, dwarf sedge, milkweed and dwarf flax.

From Kamperland, it is only a 15-minute drive to this beautiful nature reserve near Vrouwenpolder. Are you staying at park De Banjaard or De Groote Duynen? Then you can even walk to this beautiful area on foot.
