Situated in a remote area of the Witteberge (white mountains) of the scenic Eastern Free State Highlands of South Africa is a hidden magical place which is a spectacular 1500ha nature reserve.
The sandstone mountains offer breathtaking views to the nearby Maluti mountains in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho.
There are deep valleys with towering sandstone cliffs, some hidden caves with bushman paintings, seasonal wildflowers as well as seasonal and perennial streams and waterfalls that make hiking on one of four trails a wonderful, invigorating pastime.There are also ruins of early Sotho huts on the reserve.
As our fences are registered with the Department of Nature Conservation we are in a position to offer hunting throughout the year and hunters do not have to purchase hunting licenses. We offer both firearm and bow hunting and meat, as well as trophy hunters are welcome.
