The Reserve is partly mountainous, with gorges, waterfalls and hanging cliffs, offering some of the most spectacular views in Southern Africa. Open plains and bush that vary from pristine to ravine together with impassable wild areas create a haven for the above mentioned species.

We will entertain you with real South African hospitality from the moment of arrival to the time of departure and still keep in touch thereafter, the way good friendships are formed.

We promise to make your stay in the Eastern Cape a memorable one. Our aim is to make you feel part of our family and share the love that we have for nature with you.



During our winter months (April-August) temperatures range from 7.1°C (44.8°F) to 19.5°C (61.3°F) and 25.4°C (77.8°F).

These are ideal hunting conditions. In general, the weather of the Eastern Cape is kind to visitors.

Rarely reaching extremes except perhaps in the height of the Karoo summer, its nature depends not so much upon how it changes, but how much you move across the province’s expanse and into and out of different climatological zones.
