Genuinely only one hour's drive from Cape Town (90km), we offer a rare opportunity to appreciate some of South Africa's wildlife in their natural habitat- bontebok, found exclusively in the Cape, mingle with eland, wildebeest, red hartebeest, springbuck, duiker, grysbuck, grey rhebuck, and ther indigenous species. The majestic mountains add to the rugged appeal of the area. Great photographic opportunities.

The zebra in the reserve are part of a revolutionary attempt to recreate the extinct quagga, a zebra like animal with no stripes on the rump and legs but with identical DNA to the Plain zebra. The name quagga is derived from the Khoi-San people, which imitated the cry of the animal.

The unspoilt natural surroundings create an excellent example of the biodiversity of fauna and flora. A wide variety of bird species from the small cisticola to the amazing African Fish Eagle are ever present in the reserve. Come and relax and unwind in our tranquil surroundings and enjoy sundowners and other refreshments at the lapa overlooking the extensive dam.
