The Overberg Renosterveld Conservation Trust is now launching a new interpreted walking trail on the Haarwegskloof Reserve for those visitors who wish to learn more about the unique biodiversity conserved here. The trail showcases the unique biodiversity and flora of the quartz patches of the eastern Rûens.
Once a year, this ‘Cinderella’ renosterveld landscape transforms into a botanical wonderland. This spring bloom peaks from early August to early October and is always over far too quickly. Make sure you don’t regret missing it this season (the flowering, thus far, appears to be largely unaffected by the drought) - get out there, visit your local remnants, come and visit Haarwegskloof Renosterveld Reserve.
There’s no doubt members of the Big Five once roamed our Renosterveld Reserve in the Overberg. Sadly, they became extinct in our area many years ago. But our Reserve still provides a sanctuary for members of the Little Five; three, to be precise. Take our Little 5 Challenge to see how well you know your Little 5.
