Gamkaberg Nature Reserve
Located a short distance south west of Oudtshroon, the Gamkaberg Nature Reserve is a small mountainous area put aside to help conserve a population of endangered Cape mountain zebra and it's natural habitat.
Gamkaberg is also host to many other wildlife creatures such as various antelope, aardwolf, honey badger, baboon, black-backed jackal, caracal, and the elusive leopard. Birders can also find a myriad of bird species in this area. The reserve features an extraordinary amount of varied flora; a diverse collection of Cape fynbos, karoo succulent, subtropical thicket, and evergreen forest.
