Wildlife

NATURALLY WILD. NATURALLY PEACEFUL.

The game that live and roam across our sixty hectare private game reserve are free, wild – and peaceful. Because the accommodation is in such close proximity to the reserve, you’ll see game throughout your stay.

In the mornings, eland and their calves graze around the cottages and occasionally drink from the plunge pool. During the day, springbok play in the veld and larger game such as wildebeest, zebra and the scarce bontebok can be spotted.

Fisherman are welcome to try their luck: the dam is stocked with bass and blue kurper; while birdwatchers will appreciate the large variety of water fowl near the dam. In the vineyards, on the farm and in the reserve you are also likely to see smaller animals such as the meerkat, the beautiful cape fox, the cape grysbok, and steenbok.

Over time, many of the animals have become quite tame. You won’t be able to pet them, as they are not domesticated, but because of the setting and tranquillity you can experience them in their natural habitat, while walking through the reserve or even from the comfort of your own cottage.

We’re unfortunately not able to accommodate day visitors. If you’d like to visit our private game reserve, check here for availability or take a look at our accommodation to find a cottage that is perfect for your getaway.
