Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve was named after landowner Roelof Oelofse (1723), who was then known as the 'Groot Vader' (Great Father) of the region. The wildlife includes lots of birds and small mammals. If you are lucky you might even get to see a ghost frog or one of the unique butterfly species.
This is the most significant stretch of indigenous Afromontane forest left in the south-western Cape, with nearly all of the 35 typical forest tree species, including red alder, ironwood, stinkwood and yellowwood.
Warmwaterberg Spa is a mineral hot spring situated between Barrydale and Ladismith on Route 62 from Montagu to Oudtshoorn.
The Spa is set on a 600Ha property and offers self-catering accommodation for those who wish to do-it-themselves, but also has a full-service licenced restaurant, bar and off-sales for those who want to indulge. A small kiosk supplies basic necessities, including braai-wood and ice alongside a selection of groceries.
There are twenty five grassed sites locates all over the spa. Most of the sites are shaded by the thorn or Karoo willow trees.
Bontebok National Park is on the banks of the Breede River, just 5km rom Swellendam.
When the Bontebok species was approaching extinction in the early 1800s (approximately 17 Bontebok left) some land owners set aside portions of their properties to form temporary reserves for the Bontebok. Mr. P. V. van der Byl, his son, Mr. A. van der Byl, and the van Breda and Albertyn families recognised the perilous situation of the species – without these families’ efforts the Bontebok might well have become extinct.
Today your chances of seeing Bontebok, Blesbok or Zebra are very good.
