The Game Reserve

The Game Reserve covers an area of approx 900 hectares.  It is situated on the Springbok Flats, the second most fertile basin of soil in the world.  The reserve has a rich diversity of both fauna and flora, and has been conserved masterfully for many years, making it a truly remarkable park.  Game numbers are plentiful, and include zebra, wildebeest, kudu, red hartebeest, waterbuck, impala, Steen buck, duiker, caracal, aardvark, warthog, jackal, honey badger, and many more.

The vegetation varies from acacia to broadleaf deciduous woodland.  The famous Nylsvlei wetland extends onto the farm, making birding exceptional, here.  The Nylsvlei wetland area is known as one of the best birding areas in the country, and this farm is often used by study groups.  Comprehensive lists of species are available, for animals, birds and flora, all of which are updated regularly.

There are two natural dams on the farm where game viewing is exceptional, both from the bird hide and on foot.  Animals are tame and little concerned about people.  There are several hiking trails, well marked and clear, which are very popular.  Hiking is not restricted to these trails, and hikers may wander wherever they wish within the boundaries of the reserve.  Roads are also in a good state, and can be traveled safely by most vehicles.  Game viewing from private vehicles is allowed, and is unrestricted.

The Game Farm is not open to the public, and is for the benefit of members only.  This is applicable to the camp site as well, which ensures that there is no disturbance of any kind from the public.

No loud music is allowed, as this disturbs fellow members.
