“No easy road to freedom” was a central theme in most of the Mass Democratic Movement’s campaigns, from the early days through to the late 1980s. Any understanding of present day conditions in South Africa is greatly enhanced by looking at past injustice, the legacy of the struggle and the promise of reconstruction and development initiatives under way at present. Freedom has not come easy.

You will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Game Reserve which is a 2.5 hr drive via vineyards, orchards and magnificent scenery. Upon arrival at the reserve you are welcomed with a chilled drink before being ushered through to the restaurant for a buffet breakfast.

Thereafter depart on a 2 – 3 hour open vehicle game drive through the reserve. Having been proclaimed a Nature Reserve in 1985, the ‘veld’ (terrain) is in pristine condition, consisting of Renoster veld, Mountain Fynbos and succulent vegetation types found in 3 beautiful valleys. Situated in the Karoo with its wide open spaces, the 4,500-hectare reserve has a natural wetland and protected by majestic mountains and valleys, which makes for varied and ideal game viewing.

On your drive you may see lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, as well as giraffe and hippo. Large herds of game are found on the Reserve such as Black Wildebeest, Burchell’s Zebra, Springbok, Gemsbok, Steenbok, Blesbok, Bat Eared Fox, Ostriches, Klip Springer, Duiker, Greybuck, Baboon, Black Backed Jackal, Eland, Red Hartebeest.

The natural wetland is home to 172 species of birds and is also home to several breeding pairs of the rare and endangered black eagle, after which the reserve has been named.

Following the game drive, you will have the opportunity to visit the ARC rehabilitation centre. Here you will learn a bit more about the rescue and rehabilitation efforts the reserve plays in the area.
