Klein Cedarberg Private Nature Reserve
-Tanqua Karoo-

Klein Cederberg is a magically set in a old settler's house in the Koue Bokkeveld region, just west of some of the top birding sites in the Karoo. In addition to its convenience as a base for birding in the Tanqua Karoo, the beauty of the surrounding mountains, Bushman rock art a short walk away, and the hospitality andsuperb Karoo cuisine of the Wullscleger family make a visit to Klein Cedarberg an experience in itself.

Location: Swartruggens, above Ceres and the Tanqua Karoo.

Why is it good for the birder?

Klein Cedarberg is a short hop from Skitterykloof (popularly known as Katbakkies), a key Tanqua Karoo birding site offering such specials as Cinnamon-breasted Warbler, Pale-winged Starling, Layard's Titbabbler and many others. Furthermore, Klein Cedarberg is ideally situated for taking night drives along the adjacent regional roads, which offer of the Cape's best chances at Cape Eagle Owl, together with the possibility of nocturnal mammals such as Smith's Red Rock Rabbit, Grey Rhebok and some time perhaps even a Leopard!

Your hosts: Werner and Vikki Wullschleger

Accommodation: Rustic but comfortable rooms and cottages are built out of local Cedarberg sandstone.

Rates: R350 per person - dinner, bed and breakfast.
