In the heart of the Cape Winelands where one seldom finds such serenity
and calm space lies Bontebok Ridge Reserve, Wellington. This is part of
the Renosterveld Conservancy in the Limietberg Valley.
Genuinely only one
hour´s drive from Cape Town (90km), we offer a rare opportunity
to appreciate some of South Africa’s wildlife in their natural habitat-
bontebok, found exclusively in the Cape, mingle with eland, wildebeest,
springbuck, duiker, grysbuck, grey rhebuck, and other
indigenous species. The majestic mountains add to the rugged appeal of
the area. Great photographic opportunities.
The zebra in the
reserve are part of a revolutionary attempt to re-breed the extinct quagga,
a zebra like animal with no stripes on the rump and legs but with identical
DNA to the Plains zebra. The name quagga is derived from the Khoi-San
people, which imitated the cry of the animal.
The unspoiled natural
surroundings create an excellent example of the biodiversity of fauna
and flora. A wide variety of bird species from the small cisticola to
the amazing African Fish Eagle are ever present in the reserve.
Come and relax and
unwind in our tranquil surroundings and enjoy sundowners and other refreshments
at the lapa overlooking the extensive dam.
appreciated and enjoyed by both young and old. Ideal for all occasions.
An approximate 2 hour drive through
the reserve on an open Landrover, guided by someone with a good understanding
of the area arriving at the lapa. Here you can settle down and enjoy wine
or light refreshments and homemade snacks at your leisure until it's time
to return back to reality.
