a haven of biodiversity
The 25,000 acre reserve is home to a vast array of indigenous creatures which are also found in the Karoo National Park. It is a sanctuary for herds of springbok, gemsbok, Cape mountain zebra, Cape buffalo, red hartebeest, eland, and kudu. Other non-herd creatures such as klipspringer, giant tortoises, porcupines, bat-eared foxes, black-backed jackal and ostriches can also be commonly sighted. An abundance of birds, eagles, butterflies and dragonflies add to the natural beauty of the reserve wherever one looks.
In this land there are no dangerous cats, which allows our guests to roam freely, whether guided or solo, and sleep under the stars should they wish, without no concern of a dangerous encounter.
The reserve enjoys a rich biodiversity which is born of the lands interesting terrain and topography. The Sunday’s river encourages water-reliant creatures, and is home to exotic birds and amphibians. The hilly landscape which can be climbed by vehicle for viewing is home to eagles and klipspringers.
