Activities

Visit the AfriCat Foundation and have the opportunity to observe some of their programmes which support leopard, cheetah and other wild carnivores, as well as visit the AfriCat Carnivore Care Centre. Leopards are frequently seen and can be radio-tracked from the game viewing vehicles; they roam freely and are notoriously shy so sightings cannot be guaranteed. You can also track carnivores such as cheetah, wild dogs and hyena on foot within the 200 square kilometre reserve or experience a day in the life of a bushman.

There are also self guided nature trails, some fantastic bird watching – with over 250 species listed – or scouring for nocturnal wildlife in the hide where you may spot honey badgers, porcupines and caracal.
