The untouched natural forests and indigenous vegetation borders one of Africa’s most precious nature parks and World Heritage site, the Grootvaderbosch Nature Reserve. There is an abundance of wildlife including the Cape Leopard, African Buffalo, Lynx, Bushbuck, Wild Boar, Greysbok, Klipspringer, Porcupine and over 200 species of birds including the Verraux Eagle, Crowned Eagle and Martial Eagle and many species of butterflies such as the rare “Forest King” and the “Blue Banded Swallowtail”. The forests also boast an abundance of natural wild mushroom varieties. The main purpose of BRACKENHILLS is the conservation of wildlife and indigenous forests. BRACKENHILLS is actively trying to reintroduce and protect the natural wildlife that once abundantly roamed Southern Africa, and in particular the Cape Leopard, Cape Buffalo, Bontebok and the Mountain Zebra.
