On this website, you’ll find all information you need on Blouberg Nature Reserve.
Situated in the lowveld of northern Limpopo, it is graced with a beautiful mountain as well as typical bushveld. The varying topography, from mountain down to the plains and the Brak River in the south lends itself to a rich diversity of plant and animal life. Our reserve has five different veld types! Unique features are the tamboti woodland, fig forest, baobabs and the Brak River floodplain. It has possibly the largest selection of trees for any similar size reserve in the country, and with this large selection of trees comes a prolific bird population. A good variety of animals, including Buffalo and Leopard, also inhabit the Reserve.
Blouberg Nature Reserve is an unknown gem with some fantastic drawcards. For instance; it harbours the biggest breeding colony of Cape Vultures in the world. The breeding colony hosts more than 1000 breeding pairs. Visitors can view these birds at close range, either from below the breeding colony or at the vulture restaurant. Visitors can also book a guided Vulture Trail which takes them to visit the plateau above the colony, and experience a face-to-face encounter with the vultures in flight.

Other drawcards include Sable antilopes, a Buffalo breeding herd of 200+ individuals, and so on. But perhaps Blouberg’s biggest drawcard is it’s accommodation.
