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

Villiera's wildlife sanctuary 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.

There are a number of mammals in the Wildlife Sanctuary: Springbok, kudu, giraffe, bontebok, eland, gemsbok, black wildebeest, bush pig, Burchell's zebra, duiker, steenbuck, waterbuck, and grysbok.

The Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in Koelenhof and access is gained through Villiera's vineyards.

Visitors can visit the sanctuary by going on a game drive that lasts approximately two hours. Booking is essential, please phone 021 865 2002 and ask for game drive bookings.

Game Drives last about 2 hours and includes a tasting of Villiera's wines.

Note that game drives are weather permitting.
