In conjunction with two neighbors (The Cape Garden Centre and Wild Clover Farm) Villiera set aside 220ha of land as a wildlife sanctuary in 2009.

It includes 12 dams plus marsh areas which attract a huge variety of bird-life. Indigenous trees are grown in old milk containers, plastic water bottles etc. by our staff and then bought from them when a year old and planted out. Thousands of indigenous trees have also been donated by the Cape Garden Centre.  To date well over 100 000 trees have been planted.

A number of mammals have been introduced in the Wildlife Sanctuary: Springbuck, Kudu, Giraffe, Bontebok, Eland, Gemsbok, Black Wildebeest, Bush Pig, Burchell's Zebra, common Duiker, Steenbuck, Waterbuck and Grysbok.

The Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in Koelenhof and access is gained through Villiera's vineyards. A game drive through the 220 hectares lasts approximately two hours.

Booking is essential, please phone +27.218652002 and ask for game drive bookings:
