Cape Region Tour

Game Viewing (1 day)



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.

John was an excellent tour guide. Personable, knowledgeable, willing to talk about and give us insight into South African politics, his life and his feelings.  The fee paid was competitive and fair and well worth the money spent.
