The Kaaihoeve is located in a 7-hectare nature reserve that is part of the former flood area of the Upper Scheldt. The farm itself and the beautiful nature reserve around it owe their name to the former jetty. Before the Scheldt Meander was cut off in the 1960s, goods – such as coal and lime from Tournai – were unloaded and stored here.

In 1993, the Province of East Flanders bought the farm to house a nature-educational centre. You can browse through books and magazines about nature and the environment or visit a temporary exhibition. There are winding paths in the garden, fun play areas are hidden, and you will undoubtedly come across the water treatment plant for wastewater.
