Paradise Reclaimed – rent property on Touwsberg Private Game and Nature Reserve in the Klein Karoo

7000 hectares of the most spectacular panoramas and vast Little Karoo landscapes, form the Touwsberg Private Game Reserve and Nature Reserve and we are proud to be able to offer a piece of this paradise for you to enjoy.

The Game Reserve has on offer an abundance of crystal-clear drinking water, flora and wildlife in self-contained biological and geological eco-systems.

It offers a rapidly disappearing quality of life to resident property owners, with unrestricted adventure against the southern slopes of the spectacular Touwsberg mountain range.

Eco-Game Reserve

The Flora on the Reserve is a combination of typical Karoo Fynbos and succulents that offer an excellent natural home to smaller game, such as klipspringer, steenbok, duiker and springbok as well as larger game, like the Giraffe, Cape mountain zebra, red hartebeest, kudu, eland, gemsbok (oryx) and black wildebeest.

The Reserve also hosts natural predators like the leopard, caracal (rooikat) and jackal, supported by the black eagle, owl and falcon.

Among the more than 160 bird species are lapwings, kori bustards and Egyptian geese, which maintain the ecological balance.

Honeybush Tea and a variety of proteas, erica and gladioli are some of the species of flora to be found naturally in the mountains.

Notably, this particular Nature Reserve is blessed with and abnormal underground water supply.

A distinctive characteristic of this ecological game reserve is the predominance of dwarf shrubs with succulent leaves.

This sub-region of the Klein Karoo has one of the richest concentrations of succulent plants in the world.

These distinct floral areas are part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, which is designated as one of the earth’s six plant kingdoms.
