Bontebok Ridge nature drive

Book a nature drive for you and your family at Bontebok Ridge and enjoy the most amazing views of the Wellington valley whilst learning about the farm’s contribution to conservation.

You will see lots of quagga, springbok, eland and of course, bontebok. The scenery of the reserve which is set against the limietberg mountain range is absolute spectacular.

There is the option to stop at the lapa overlooking the dam where a glass of wine and some yummy homemade nibbles are served.

They also have six wooden cabins for rent.
