Cape Region Tour

Game Viewing (1 day)

Eland



Springbuck

Bontebok
Visit a reserve teeming with herds of eland, springbuck, black wildebeest, zebra and bontebok. Many other animals, such as baboons, bat-eared foxes, lynxes, and smaller species of antelope, live here too.
Among the birdlife is the magnificent black eagle (known as Verreaux’s eagle), and the dam has a spectacular array of water birds, some resident like the fish eagles and the kingfishers, and others such as the pelicans and the spoonbills less regular visitors. Flamingos have also been seen and there are a host of interesting birds out in the reserve and on the wheatlands, including large flocks of the blue crane, South Africa’s national bird.
The most important inhabitant of the reserve is the endangered geometric tortoise, one of the world’s rarest reptiles, safe here in its last remaining viable habitat.
The reserve is part of the Cape Floristic Region. The particular flora in the reserve is so special that it has been declared a provincial nature reserve, as well as a Natural Heritage Site. The vegetation in the reserve consists largely of highly endangered renosterveld, which is particularly threatened since it grows on rich soil which has almost entirely been ploughed up for agriculture.
The reserve, with its rare and unusual plants, is the subject of many ongoing studies by local universities and other institutions. More than 800 species of plants, some of which have only ever been found in the reserve, have been identified here.

Susan, Wales.
I was going to email you anyway, to thank you for all your help and for booking such a wonderful trip for us. We were all really pleased with how it worked out. The travel went very smoothly and all 4 internal flights went well. Madikwe was wonderful and more than met our expectations! The ranger guide was highly informed and we saw more big animals that we had hoped for: each of us had named two that we REALLY wanted to see! All three of us had our wishes granted, including Niamh, who wanted to see 3 male cheetahs! We really enjoyed out trip. I have passed your details on to three other people already! All the best and [hopefully] until the next time.
