Caracal, aardvark and porcupine are occasionally seen in the late afternoon.

The reserve is a birders’ paradise with over 100 species recorded. Visit the black eagles’ nest and experience the thrill of seeing these raptors hunt up close.

The legendary “Zeekoiegat”, a natural waterhole in a valley on the reserve, is the perfect place to cool off after an exhilarating hike. An interesting historical feature as it is believed that this is where the last of the Karoo’s hippos once roamed.

Reconnect with your family around the campfire, away from the pressures of modern life. Play board games and gaze into the endless Karoo night sky.
