Groendal Nature Reserve

Surrounding the Groendal Dam and protecting the important water catchment area of the Swartkops River is the 30 000ha unspoiled Groendal Nature Reserve. Characterised by rugged terrain, streams and vast ravines, the reserve is encompassed by the Groot Winterhoek Mountain range and is a beautiful retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Groendal Nature Reserve falls within the surrounding Greater Baviaanskloof Cluster, the third largest conservation area in South Africa.

Fort Fordyce Nature Reserve

Lying roughly between Fort Beaufort and Adelaide, Fort Fordyce is situated on the Amatola escarpment with magnificent views of the Hogsback and Katberg mountains.
The area is of great cultural and historical significance. Evidence of the earliest inhabitants of the area, the San, is found in the fine examples of rock paintings discovered within the reserve.
