Site summary
The reserve is one of the largest in the Western Cape and it lies in part of the Anysberg Mountain Catchment Area, which eventually drains into the Gourits River system. Despite a low diversity in birds, the reserve supports many Fynbos and Namib-Karoo biome-restricted assemblage species, as well as supporting many other arid-zone specials.
